The Starfleet News Service is a department of the United Federation of Planets Starfleet. Its mandate is to provide less formal media for the interest of Starfleet personnel.

The Starfleet News Service is distinct from any Federation media (such as the similarly-named Federation News Service), which probably have less strictures regarding potential embarrassment to Federation institutions, interstellar security, etc. Starfleet News Service is assumed to be similar in form and function to the American military department that provides Stars and Stripes and the Armed Forces Radio and Television Network.

In 2375, Starfleet News Service correspondents traveled to several different Federation, allied and non-allied worlds (and even the Q Continuum) to report and write feature articles for print or produce feature segments for broadcast. (New Worlds, New Civilizations)

In 2401, Faith Kingsford was a journalist for Starfleet News Service. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Cruchitude Dump")

Faith Kingsford even ran her own news program by 2415, Live from the Lyran Frontier. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Pledge of the Protester")
