I am Admiral Jopek and am the head of the Starfleet Academy. Only the finest cadets are allowed to graduate my academy and go on to serve in Starfleet. Within this tome you will find the tools you will need to serve with distinction.
Star Trek: Freedom began in October 2001 and sprang forth from the Federation Gaming Network which began in 1997. Over the years the game has remained strong and vibrant. We all work and play together to create a fun experience.
Due to our long history, Star Trek: Freedom has diverged from the Star Trek canon universe. You may learn more about it in this manual and on our website. The number one goal of Star Trek: Freedom is to have fun together. So work hard, play hard, and most importantly have fun.
If you ever have any questions, always feel free to contact your instructor during your time at the academy and once you have been assigned to a ship to the command team, the commanding officer and the first officer. We have a number of venues that are available for you to interact with your fellow members and that is detailed within this manual.
I look forward to assigning you to one of our ships. Good luck, cadet!"
Admiral Jopek, Academy Commanding Officer
Admiral Dar Mace, Academy First Officer
