Re: Starfleet cadet program

Youths in Trekverse have normal childhoods: going to school, making friends, playing sports and games, listening to music, making their parents lives miserable. Not all of them will go into Starfleet Academy, and those that do will only be the best and brightest (once they have reached an age appropriate for their species, for humans this seems to be 17/18).

At the Academy they have basic studies, where they all learn elementary engineering, piloting, defence, etc. After then they specialise in their desired field.
