CDsStar Trek: Starfleet Academy was originally scheduled for 4 CDs. When the game went gold with 5 CDs, the original CD jackets (for 4) would not fit, so the fifth CD was released in a Tyvek envelope. Later releases of the game have a 5 CD jacket and a "5-CD" logo on the box. There is also a DVD version.
NovelThe story of the game has been adapted into a novel written by Star Trek writer Diane Carey and published by Pocket Books.
Other versionsThere's a budget version of the game called Starfleet Academy: Strategic Operations, which contains only the first 3 missions of the full game. Two other demo versions were released: Star Trek: Starfleet Academy - Cadet Briefing, which features the 4 first levels of the main game, and Starfleet Academy: Strategic Command with the 8 first levels.
AwardsIn the German gaming magazine PC Player (issue 01/1998) the game received a special award for the "Noblest Cutscenes in 1997".
