Who was the earliest graduate of Starfleet Academy?

Are there any clues?

And none of that "the class of 2165" stuff either.

This is the kind of answerable question I come up with after a nap.

Re: Who was the earliest graduate of Starfleet Academy?

Patricia O'Malley graduated Starfleet Academy in 2149. There are no other mentions of the academy in Enterprise, just a few references to "flight school" from Archer.

What do I win?

My undying gratitude.

I intended to type "unanswerable question", but I'd just woke up.

I would offer you my firstborn male child, but I'd need a girlfriend first.

Did you mean the Terran or Federation Starfleet academy?

Re: Who was the earliest graduate of Starfleet Academy?

I was going by Memory Alpha's article for Starfleet Academy, which says it was founded in 2161.

For the Federation Starfleet, but the initially humans-only Earth Starfleet had an officer corps too.

Pre-Federation Starfleet had no Academy, just a training program called STC. The Academy diploma seen Storm Front has been confirmed to be a mistake.

Once it's on screen, it's canon.

It really hasn't been confirmed to be a mistake, just an opinion that it is. While Archer made a reference to "Starfleet Training," and Tucker to always being in trouble at something called "S.T.C.," it really doesn't rule out that the Earth Starfleet had its own pre-Federation Academy as indicated in "Storm Front."

I remember someone from behind the scenes admitting as much shortly after the episode aired.

It's odd that Memory Alpha makes no mention of an institution referred to as "Starfleet Academy" prior to 2161 at all, even in the O'Malley article which has a picture clearly showing the diploma.

Maybe it's a side effect of the Temporal Cold War.
