The Exhibition

Upon entering the exhibit, you'll become a Starfleet Academy cadet recruit. "Career Day" at the academy will test your knowledge and skills to discover what your true ranking might be as part of the crew of a starship. Will you be a Medical, Engineering or Science Officer? How about a Commander? 

After a hologram orientation, you'll begin a series of simulated science, engineering, medical and command evaluations in seven different zones. As you progress through the training program, your results will be tracked with an individual wristband in order to determine your Starfleet career recommendation.

  • Learn to speak Klingon
  • Conduct a planetary survey
  • Guide the U.S.S. Enterprise through a maze of threats
  • Test your hand during phaser target practice

There's something for everyone at Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience. 

At the end of your training, you'll graduate and receive your commissioning in the Starfleet. Don't forget to step out onto the deck of a Next Generation Enterprise-D bridge.

The unique blend of science and science fiction in Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience makes it ideal for life-long and new Star Trek fans alike. Discover the science behind Star Trek and learn how STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) helped to create the world of Star Trek.
