“STARFLEET Academy (SFA) is the education branch of STARFLEET: The International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc. They offer a wide variety of courses ranging from testing trivial knowledge of the Star Trek universe to expanding general knowledge about the world around us.
SFA’s curriculum has been designed to be offered exclusively to the members of STARFLEET. While the courses we offer are not recognized as a formal education by any established institute of higher learning, they are a fun way to pass the time and to learn something new every day.
SFA courses are generally free to all members, and nearly all have their course materials available online. Members without computer access can request hard copies of exams and/or certificates be mailed to them for the cost of printing and postage.
SFA presently has over 120 Colleges spanning all aspects of Star Trek and Science Fiction.
