Re: OK, How Does Starfleet Academy Work Exactly?

One would have to assume that they don't have a single facility in the whole Federation turning out officers either.

Either, Starfleet Academy is similar to the US Army's relationship with West Point, meaning that it's the premiere academy, but hardly the only place you can get a commission from, or the Academy had multiple installations all across the Federation.

If you have a fleet of thousands of ships and outposts across a Federation that had 300 + worlds, I don't care if the San Fransisco Facility turns out 50,000 people per class with a 100% graduation rate(which we know doesn't happen), that's not gonna cut it.
