A noble calling
The Federation's foremost institution
The adventure begins...
Welcome to Starfleet Academy
The soul of Starfleet resides in the Academy... where young beings from many worlds are educated and trained to take up their roles in the vast organization that is Starfleet. From across the Federation they come, entranced by a sense of discovery, attracted by the challenge, drawn to the promise of adventure. Here, cadets learn the meaning of the words Honor, Truth, Duty. In the end, they earn the right to call themselves Starfleet officers -- the finest men and women known to history. Now you can enter the Academy and experience for yourself what it takes to become a member of the Federation's elite cadre.

Book One: The Academy Handbook
  • New character creation rules -- the personality archetype.
  • Dozens of new traits.
  • 15 devices used by cadets.
  • 125 course descriptions from the Academy's curriculum.
