A Starfleet Training Command simulator (2285)

Starfleet Training Command (or STC) was an operating authority of Starfleet education of Starfleet Academy cadets.

In 2154, Commander Charles Tucker remembered that he kept getting himself into trouble at STC. Ensign Hoshi Sato also recalled the bad conduct discharge she received after breaking the arm of her company commander when he stopped the floating poker game she ran on the weekends. (ENT: "Observer Effect")

In 2285, Starfleet Training Command was responsible for the Academy's Enterprise-class Mark IV simulator which tested cadets with the Kobayashi Maru scenario. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

In "Observer Effect", Commander Tucker makes reference to "STC" and at no time does he use the words "Starfleet Training Command". On the contrary, the final draft of that episode's script refers to that usage of the initials "S.T.C." as meaning "Starfleet Training Center".
The "STC" referred to in "Observer Effect" was intended to be a precursor to Starfleet Academy and was meant to be similar to the Naval Training Center, where enlisted naval personnel train. Garfield Reeves-Stevens once stated that the fictional training center was an element that came out of him and his wife, Judith Reeves-Stevens, having written the novel Federation, although there are no direct references to the institution in that book.
