Why not have you start toward your last day of exams where you have to run through some simulations where you do some ship stuff and some away mission stuff(and some diplomacy stuff. ). When you finish with those you are graduated and rushed off on with priority orders to where the game starts today. Took me 30 seconds to think of that and to me it sounds better.

As opposed to you starting off in a bar with no back story what-so-ever.
