Hera Prime is an M class planet with breathable atmosphere and distinctly Earth-similar conditions. It is however a great deal more sparsely populated, and mostly dominated by the Federation facilities that make their home there.
The Combined Academy there trains Fleet and Marines together so that both branches gets an idea of how the other works with the aim of both branches working better together in the future. Cadets aren't the only ones trained here as a large number of training programs are also ran here.

Written by Turk for Hera Prime Combined Academy and VO
The junior year of the advanced programme cadets has begun. with new arrivals coming in from the fresh Antares Alliance, and a new crop of cadets on their way. The cadets have taken on increasing responsibility for their fellows and been required to participate more in the extra-curriculars of the institution.
Also arriving are a selection of teams and supporters from the Academy's big rivals, San Francisco's Earth Academy. There will be pep rallies, cheerleaders, sporting wagers...a nd some full contact grav ball.

Admiral Turk isn't the soft easy going kind of Commandant but (whether they believe it or not) he does care about his Cadets and pushes them to their limits so that by the time they graduate and move onto other roles each cadet knows that they can handle whatever is thrown at them.
His Accelerated Learning Program is the envy of other Academies along with the cadets that are part of their program. Their personal files read like fully fledged Officers and to Turk's credit he has made damn fine cadets from them.
