About Starfleet Academy

Starfleet Academy is the United Confederation of Interstellar Planets' primary center higher education for its Starfleet officer and enlisted corps. The main campus is located at Presidio Park, San Francisco, Earth, across the bay from Starfleet Headquarters near the landmark Golden Gate Bridge. Admission is open to any UCIP member by sponsorship of a Starfleet command-level officer; minimum entry age for humans is 17. UCIP citizens can join by enlisting and taking enlisted training courses.

In 2161 United Earth Starfleet Academy became Starfleet Academy, with the motto "Ex Astra, Scientia" meaning "From the stars, knowledge,". Academy cadets wear a uniform similar to but distinctive from the current Starfleet design. The Academy operates via satellite starbases around the UCIP, such as Mars One, Starbase Versailles, Relva VII, and operates Training Schools aboard the USS Endeavor and Utopia Planitia Shipyards.

The Academy is divided into three schools: Basic Simguide School, Advanced School and Command School each School has a Dean over the faculty. Basic Simguide is the first step in becoming a member of the UCIP. This required course takes students through the basics of simming -Email and/or IRC (chat based) simming. New members may chose one of the two options or both. New Members aka students are automatically enrolled in the Basic Simguide Course when they join a SIM.

Advanced School is a member's next step in the academy to expand there knowledge of their department and those departments that they will encounter in a sim. It is recommended that all officers take their department course and the Operations Course as it has information about every department.

Command School courses are for members who want to learn to be a senior officer(department head) in charge of all members of his or her department, an executive officer who assists in all SIM operations or a Commanding Officer in charge of a starbase or starship developmental SIM. The Flag Officers course is for Captains or members of higher rank with the desire to learn about the day to day operations of Starfleet Command or UCIP Service Departments. All Command School courses have requirments, check the course directory before applying to Command School Courses.
