Note[edit | edit source]

The nature of the division of responsibilities between the the Commandant of Starfleet Academy and the Superintendent of Starfleet Academy has not been established. At the modern United States Naval Academy, the Superintendent is the Officer in charge of the Academy and the Commandant oversees discipline and day-to-day operations involving midshipmen. (The U.S. Naval Academy's Commandant is properly titled "Commandant of Midshipmen.")
