And I'm pretty sure they are in the same time zone.

I'm lost...is this thread debating whether San Francisco has a night time? Of course it does...the game just doesn't have the tech built into the map to show it. Sure they can do it, just whether they will or not.

So I beamed up to my ship and flew an orbit around the Earth and noted which continents were in light and which were in darkness. I repeated this again about twelve hours later and discovered that indeed the Earth has stopped rotating! But that isn't the truly puzzling part. The west coast of the USA was in darkness and as we all know Starfleet is in San Francisco. So I beamed down to the Academy to check it out and sure enough...daytime! What strange phenomenon could be causing this? How could the western seaboard of North America be in darkness yet San Francisco be in daylight? My mind boggled. Could it be Q screwing with our heads? Maybe some evil plot by the Klingons? Or maybe a new but yet undiscovered black hole is bending the sun's rays around the planet.

...or maybe it's just STO being sloppy with the details.
it is all just a HOLODECK simulation!

Don't go to the Academy at night. I hear rumors that once a year it goes dark for 30 days and salt vampires slaughter and kill everyone.

Or was that some movie with Josh Hartnett....

I think adding a nighttime would ruin the environment and atmosphere that the Starfleet Academy currently gives.

It's a nice break from the darkness of space.

There's an idea.

At night NPCs disappear with an occasional Security Officer staying at their post. And a rare "apparition" that appears to be a security guard, until you get close and turns into something scary!

Be one heck of an event for Halloween.
