The symbol of the United Federation of Planets

The United Federation of Planets was a galactic political organization made up of planets that willingly joined along with their colonies.

Founding Edit

The Federation was founded in 2161 after the end of the Earth-Romulan War. When founded the Federation Starfleet was also founded, out of the military and exploratory forces of the different worlds including the Earth Starfleet. The Coalition of Planets is considered to be the first stirrings of what led to the Federation, and as the preceding power.

Government Edit

The main power of the Federation is the Federation Council(legislative branch). The Federation also has an executive branch led by the Federation President. It also has a judicial branch whos supreme authority is the Federation Supreme Court. Each planet is still semi-autonomous but most foreign policy and overall defensive matters are handled by the Federation.

Agencies Edit

Economics Edit

The Federation does not use money except when dealing with other races with which they use the Federation Credit. Most planets in the Federation are rich in resources making the non usage of money much easier.

Conflicts Edit

The Federation's expansion brought it into contact with many hostile races. These include the Klingon Empire, the Cardassian Union, the Talarians, the Sheliak, the Tzenkethi, the Borg, and the Dominion (along with the Cardassians and the Breen Confederacy). The Klingons never actually got into an all-out war, the only time a war started it was stopped four days later by the Organians. There were also a number of small skirmishes between the Federation and the Romulan Star Empire.

Starfleet Edit

Starfleet is the naval force of the Federation. Unlike a majority of their neighbors, Starfleet is more reasearch and exploration based. Numerous strategy's are used when contacting new species. THe most important is the Prime Directive, under no circumstances is involvement which would change a culture's normal development allowed, even if crew or entire ships are at stake. In all Star Trek expansions, TV series and books, Starfleet is the main focus.
