Rarely seen but often spoken of is one of the most iconic and historic parts of Star Trek, Starfleet Academy. From its foundation in the 2140’s as United Earth Starfleet Academy to its integration into the Federation as the United Federation Starfleet Academy in 2161 some of the most historic federation citizens have walked its halls. Robert April, Christopher Pike, Spock, James T. Kirk, Jean Luc Picard, the list goes on. Many of the history books in the Federation and even in foreign governments have chapters of some of these individuals dedicated to them and it all started in San Francisco.
Built within walking distance of Starfleet Command Headquarters, this majestic vista has been home to one of the most elite education centers in the galaxy, the primary campus of Starfleet Academy. This is not the only campus or facility dedicated to the Academy it is however the most know and the image that springs to mind when the name is mentioned. Starfleet Academy accepts only the best and graduates only the best of the best. The Academy has a multitude of education programs lasting roughly four years as well as graduate programs and training programs for enlistees.
Here in United Federation Starfleet we use the inspiration from this institution and created United Federation Starfleet Academy. Much like in Starfleet there is a required curriculum for all new members and also a massive class library for people to enjoy at their leisure. There are also higher level programs including a Command and General Staff College, a degree program, and so much more. It was founded on January 1st 2007 by one of the founding members of United Federation Starfleet, Zed Drebin. Starting out of a single classroom on a SIM in Second Life Grid, the birthplace of UFS, is where it all started. As UFS grew so did the Academy, eventually the Academy as given its own station, as the class library grew by the dozens. Eventually we grew to where we are today, the Academy is now available to everyone via the UF Starfleet Database with campus in various Virtual locations and hundreds of classes in its ever-growing library. As a member you will have access to all of this as well as the support of a dedicated group of individuals who have committed themselves to ensuring our members get the best possible experience as well as every opportunity to shine.
