The official logo of Starfleet Academy, circa 2370.

In the fictional universe of Star Trek, Starfleet Academy is where the future members of Starfleet learn the skills required for their jobs. The Academy was created in the year 2161, when the United Federation of Planets was founded. The Academy's motto is "Ex astris, scientia" - "from the stars, knowledge". This is a paraphrase of the Apollo 13 motto "Ex luna scientia," - "From the moon, knowledge." In turn, the Apollo 13 motto was a paraphrase of "Ex scientia tridens," the motto of the United States Naval Academy, meaning "From knowledge, seapower."
