STARFLEET HEADQUARTERS - SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF.
On behalf of Starfleet Command, I would like to welcome you aboard the Columbia, and congratulate you on your assignment to a Starship that has proven itself to be one of the finest in the fleet.
Not one being in a hundred has the necessary qualifications to become a Starfleet officer, and not one officer in a hundred has the abilities required for Starship duty. You may consider yourself a member of a very privileged class, one that command the respect and eny of beings galaxy-wide.
You have also been given an important responsibility – for as long as you wear the uniform of Starfleet, your conduct will reflect upon the entire service in the eyes of the galaxy. It is your sworn duty as well as your responsibility to upload the laws and ethics of the Fleet.
I would also like to say that since it’s commission a decade a go, the exploits of the Columbia have become famous; once you make the grade, you can look forward to an exciting tour of duty on the on very frontier of the galaxy. Through the voyages of Starships like the Columbia, Starfleet adds to the Federation’s already extensive scientific and sociological knowledge, promotes good will and commerce within its territorial boundaries, and enforces peace in our galaxy.
Your job is one of scientist, observer, ambassador, arbiter and police – and if you believe that any one of these profession is worthwhile, you will find the combination of all of them to be an experience unique in this or any other galaxy.
Admiral Jarodd Hassell,
Chief of Starfleet Operations.
Vice Admiral Hanna Wolff,
Commander, Starfleet’s Fifth Fleet
