WHAT IS STARFLEET COMMAND
Starfleet Command (or SFC) is an international non-profit making group of Star Trek, Science Fiction and Space Enthusiasts and one of the largest Star Trek fan clubs in the world. Originally founded in the United States in 1974, the club is patterned after the Starfleet Command organisation as seen in the Star Trek television series and movies.
Starfleet Command operates through local units spread across the United States (Quadrant One), the United Kingdom and Europe (Quadrant Two) and Australia and Asia (Quadrant Three). Each Quadrant runs autonomously, with it’s own Admiralty Board and Support structure to assist and Each unit is run as a Starship, Starbase or Space Station with the appropriate departmental structures and crew assignments.

STARFLEET Academy (also referred to as the Space Academy) is a department within STARFLEET.
The primary mission of Starfleet Academy is to educate our members so they are better prepared to serve their units, Starfleet Command, and all fandom.
The Academy serves as a knowledge resource in many areas including (but not limited to) science, astronomy, Star Trek trivia, and Naval history.
All new Starfleet Command Quadrant One members start as enlisted recruits in their local units. (If under the age of 10, they begin as midshipmen). Once a recruit turns 16, he / she can enroll in Officer Candidate School (OCS).
Starfleet Command Quadrant One
Starfleet Command is unique amongst Sci-Fi clubs – not only do we have an unparalleled forty-plus year history of continuous activity world wide, we were also given our start by Gene Roddenberry himself! Legend has it that Starfleet Command’s founders approached Gene with the concept of a club based on the Starfleet organisation as seen in the show and asked for his approval. Naturally, they received it – in fact, the original SFC club logo was even seen in a subtly modified form in Star Trek: The Motion Picture!
While the Star Trek franchise went from strength to strength with the jump to motion pictures and the introduction of The Next Generation, Starfleet Command also prospered and spread around the world – with the US arm becoming Quadrant One, being joined by Quadrant Two (UK and Europe).

WE BELIEVE IN DIVERSITY
In Star Trek canon, IDIC is a Vulcan philosophy and also a prestigious Vulcan award of merit. The phrase in Vulcan is Kol-Ut-Shan. “The glory of creation is in its infinite diversity.” “And the ways our differences combine to create meaning and beauty.
Over the years the term has been embraced by fans worldwide to mirror Star Trek’s collectively varied and diverse cultures all standing together as one and a symbol of the wide spectrum of human differences in all it’s forms.
IDIC has become more than a piece of lore in a show bible, for many, it has become an ideal worth striving for. For SFC it’s a philosophy proudly rooted in the core of our foundation.
