I suppose the real answer is Gene Rpddenberry or Gene Coon, or whoever came up with the concept of the Academy in the first place.

Well, I've been here less than three months and don't always know who has veto power without looking it up. And the other day I saw some guy issuing fake bans to answers he didn't like. And I'd been without nicotine for 48 hours and was getting stressed. Now I've got my fix and I'll be more calm.
I perfectly understand. Really, only people with their names in green (moderators) or yellow (administrators) can do thread closings and bans. Anyone else trying to do that is just pulling yer leg.

Belated welcome to the board.

Re: Who was the earliest graduate of Starfleet Academy?

Ignoring Enterprise (although IMO Starfleet is Starfleet, whatever distinctions Memory Alpha may draw), the first people we saw at Starfleet Academy in-universe would be the gang from JJ's Star Trek, in 2255, who graduated in 2258 (their class rings can be seen HERE, a few of the characters are seen wearing them in thatmovie and in Into Darkness.)

I believe the first references to the academy IRL are from TOS' second pilot, "Where No Man Has Gone Before" - Gary Mitchell mentions Kirk having been an academy instructor.

The only thing I know for certain is T'Bonz is the Supreme Goddess.

That may be the definitive answer. I'm still working on that firstborn male child.
