Academy Grounds - Presidio Campus, San Francisco, Earth
in 2161, this four-year institution serves as a training
facility for Starfleet personnel, with the main campus
located on Earth. Due to the size of the Federation
and problems with distance, however, Starfleet has established
campuses throughout Federation space.
The motto of Starfleet Academy is
"Ex astris, scientia," meaning "From
the stars, knowledge."
Only a few years ago Starfleet Academy
celebrated its 200th anniversary. Since its founding,
the Academy has graduated millions of Starfleer officers
from more than one hundred different species, all learning
to work together for a common goal. Many Academy graduates
have become key figures in Federation history, discovering
new worlds and civilizations, winning wars in defense
expanding the frontiers of our knowledge, and embodying
Starfleet's values of honor, truth, and duty.
Starfleet Academy remains one of the
Federation's most important institutions. The Academy
teaches future generations of Starfleet officers the skills
that empower them to follow in their predecessors' footsteps,
upholding the ideals of Starfleet and the United Federation
of Planets. The Superintendent and the faculty carry the
responsibility of ensuring the cadets under their supervision
become the finest officers they can.
