Starfleet Academy (23rd Century)
- Note that compass points relate to the in-game map, not real-life Marin County
Starfleet Academy is the collective name of Starfleet's training facilities located in San Francisco, Earth. It was officially established in 2161, with the main grounds located in Marin County. To the southwest of the academy is the Golden Gate Bridge, whilst to the north across the strait lies Starfleet Headquarters, the Presidio, and downtown San Francisco. The Academy motto is Ex Astris, Scientia meaning "from the stars, knowledge."
New players of DSC-era Federation start at Starfleet Academy. After the tutorial, the Academy can be accessed from the Sol System or Earth Spacedock and serves as a social map until the player leaves 2257 in “Downfall”.
Its counterpart is the 2409-era Starfleet Academy.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The apparent location of the Academy grounds is actually in Marin County, slightly to the north of the City of San Francisco, on the opposite side of the Golden Gate Strait. (Marin County and the City of San Francisco occupy the two peninsulas which separate San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean, and which are linked by the Golden Gate Bridge.) This explains why the city is visible at the far (southern) end of the Golden Gate Bridge in-game. (That the visible, farther end of the Bridge is the south end can also be recognized by the mass on the shoreline slightly below and to the left of the Bridge, which is probably Fort Point.) However, the compass points given earlier in this article, as well as the orientation of the in-game map, are not consistent with this fact.
