Welcome to the headquarters of the Federation's space exploration agency: Starfleet. Based in San Francisco, facing the Starfleet Academy, Starfleet Command is the organisational centre for Starfleet, where all the admirals and other flag officers reside.
Starfleet Command consists of 8 buildings, all of which are named after individuals who have forged Starfleet into the organisation it now is. The buildings are as follows:
Jonathan Archer Building
James T. Kirk Building
Christopher Pike Building
Robert April Building
Zephram Cochrane Building
Starfleet Command was constructed in 2161 and has been the centre of operations for the Starfleet ever since. Overlooking the San Francisco Bay area, Starfleet Command is in itself just the heart, or brain area, for the 77-odd starbases and other space-dwelling residences all representing the United Federation of Planets' space division. Starfleet Command consists of the Strategic division, Research and Development division, Starfleet Security, Starfleet Intelligence, the Science division to name but a few. All of the division heads are here, the Rear Admirals, Vice Admirals, Admirals, Fleet Admirals and the Starfleet Commander-in-Chief herself.
Starfleet Command boasts the most sophisticated communications network known of in either the Alpha or Beta Quadrants. Starfleet Command is able to communicate at any time to any of it's numerous starships, starbases or other facilities through billions of channels of communication, boosted to subspace speeds to counteract the vast distances covered. Starfleet Command also liases with the non-Starfleet space-faring
races that dwell in the area covered by Starfleet in order to discover new information and learn more about the universe and its contents. Starfleet Command has many briefing rooms where the various Captains and Admirals can discuss policies, deliberate on current situations and plan the next moves.
Starfleet Command is well served by airtrams, shuttlecraft and transporters, enabling all personnel rapid access to and from the Starfleet Headquarters to any number of Federation destinations including: the Presidential residence in Paris, the Starbase 1 facility orbiting Earth and the San Francisco Orbital Yards. Starfleet is ideally located for it's purpose and a day trip to the centre of operations of the Starfleet is rarely enough and a repeat visit, often in the form of enrolling into the Starfleet, is quite common. Enjoy your visit.
