Welcome to 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. We serve as a knowledge resource in many areas including (but not limited to) science, astronomy, Star Trek trivia, and Naval history.
