Under the Guest Observer Program for EUVE, extreme ultraviolet spectra of the bright RSCVn binary system, Capella (HD 34029; G8~III~$+$ G0 III) were obtained between $10-13$ Dec. 1992 during the calibration program of the satellite. Spectra from the 3 spectrometers cover the wavelength range $\lambda \lambda$~$70 - 740$. The total integration time was approximately 20 hours. These data were reduced with the ``Fast-Track'' processing procedures. A rich spectrum of emission lines is detected and identified including He II ($\lambda$304) which is associated with the system. Many emission lines of ionized iron are identified in the spectra: Fe XV, XVI, XVIII ...; apparently Fe XXIV ($\lambda$ 192) is also present, indicative of temperatures of $2 \times 10^7$\ K. Line identifications will be given, and emission measures derived for the system and compared to previous distributions from X-ray and ultraviolet spectra.
