United Federation of Planets


The United Federation of Planets (abbreviated as UFP and commonly referred to as the Federation) is an interstellar federal republic, composed of planetary governments that agreed to exist semi-autonomously under a single central government based on the principles of universal liberty, rights, and equality, and to share their knowledge and resources in peaceful cooperation, scientific development, space exploration and defensive purposes.

One of the most powerful interstellar states in known space, it encompasses 8,000 light years. The total number of formal member worlds is over one hundred and fifty.

Starfleet is the deep space exploratory and defense service maintained by the United Federation of Planets. Its principal functions include the advancement of Federation knowledge about the galaxy and its inhabitants, the advancement of Federation science and technology, the defense of the Federation, and the facilitation of Federation diplomacy.

As per its mandate of deep space exploration, its personnel are frequently brought into contact with cultures and sentient species whose existences were unknown to the Federation. Starfleet officers therefore act as official representatives of the Federation in these cases. Starfleet vessels are also frequently used to ferry ambassadors on diplomatic missions.

The Federation is the leading power in the Delta Quadrant mission of the Treaty of Romulus, and Starfleet is the operator of Starbase 900.

Starbase 900 in the Delta Quadrant is supplied from an Alpha Quadrant staging at Starbase 423.
