Although generally forgotten today, ''Starfleet Academy'' was considered to be among the best series in Marvel's ''Franchise/StarTrek'' run, both in terms of art quality and storytelling (their use of original characters allowed them greater freedom). It is notable for being the first series in the franchise to feature primarily original characters (debuting several months before Creator/PeterDavid's ''Literature/StarTrekNewFrontier'' novels; David himself wrote a few young adult novels about Worf at Starfleet Academy that introduced some ''New Frontier'' characters). It is also the first Franchise/StarTrek series to directly address homosexuality (Cooper himself is gay).

''Star Trek: Starfleet Academy'' was a comic book series written by Chris Cooper and published by Marvel between 1996 and 1998. Lasting 19 issues, the series focuses on the adventures of [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Nog]] and his teammates in Omega Squad at [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Starfleet Academy]].

Omega Squad itself was a classic FiveManBand consisting of:

* Nog (The Alien)
* Kamilah Goldstein (TheHeart)
* Matthew Decker (TheLancer, later TheLeader)
* T'Priell ([[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]])
* Pava Ek'Noor (The ActionGirl)
* Edam Astrun (TheSixthRanger)

With Pava's inclusion as a minor character in ''Literature/StarTrekTitan'', the series has been retroactively incorporated into the Franchise/StarTrekNovelverse.

* XanatosGambit: The Founders trick the Federation into believing that they plan to annihilate a Telepath conference; in reality, they want the delegates evacuated to spread a memetic virus. In any event, the virus has already been implanted and the evacuation would facilitate the spread.
