The Seal of the United Federation of Planets

The United Federation of Planets is, besides the Klingon Empire and the Romulan Republic, one of three playable factions in Star Trek Online. Founded in 2161, it is the governing body of an alliance of more than 150 planetary governments, spread out over 8,000 light years and thousands of worlds (including founding worlds Earth, Vulcan, Andoria and Tellar Prime), each working in cooperation to uphold their principles of justice, equality, and rights, as well as expand and share their knowledge and resources for the purpose of space exploration and peaceful cooperation with other races.

The Federation's military, defensive, and exploratory branch is named Starfleet, of which each Federation player will automatically be an officer. Note that "Starfleet" is not the Federation, it is only the military branch to a civil government, similar to the United States of America's naval branch.

Player Characters[edit]

Upon starting a new Federation character, players must choose a career (analogous to a 'class' from other MMORPGs) and a species (or race). The career determines the character's native abilities, and the race determines the character's innate traits, and in certain cases, special abilities. In ground combat, the career choice and racial traits drastically affect the gameplay and strategies used by the player.

When the player completes the tutorial (or skips it), a Starfleet Light Cruiser is assigned to them, which acts as the player's avatar in space and sector space, and is the primary method of combat and interaction in space. The character's career affects the type of gameplay strategies used by the player, as well as the customizable Bridge Officer abilities and ship consoles.

Classes[edit]

See main article: Profession

In Star Trek Online, players may choose which career they wish their character to adopt. Players are able to choose from the following three career paths:

Each profession has its own advantages (and, of course, disadvantages) in the gameplay of Star Trek Online.

Races[edit]

Federation characters have a diverse range of races to choose from, each of which offers unique traits and abilities. A player's choice of race is important, so it is advisable to choose carefully.

Once a race is chosen and the player begins the tutorial or skips it, the character's Race cannot be changed.

Starships[edit]

See main article: Federation playable starships

There are three main types of playable Starfleet vessel, each with numerous sub-types for different ranks and styles of play, and each of those sub-types with a number of cosmetic variants. The types of vessel are generally biased towards a specific class, but players of any class can captain any type of vessel.

History[edit]

Fleet Admiral Jorel Quinn (left) and Chancellor J'mpok (right) agree on a cease-fire between the Federation and the Klingon Empire in 2410.

The Federation was formed in San Francisco, Earth, in 2161 upon the signing of the Charter of the United Federation of Planets by its four founding species; the Humans, Vulcans, Andorians, and Tellarites. Being in conflict with the Klingon Empire during the 22nd and 23rd centuries, the Khitomer Accords of 2293 brought over 100 years of relative peace between both powers. In 2405, the peace between the Federation and the Empire is ended when Starfleet establishes a blockade of the Hromi Cluster. Five years later, a cease-fire is re-established between both powers in order to jointly counter the Iconian threat.

Politics[edit]

The Federation government is a representative republic. The headquarters of the United Federation of Planets is located on Earth in Sector 001. The Federation is led by an elected President who serves as head of state and head of government, and whose office is located in Paris, France. As of 2409, the Federation President is Aennik Okeg. The Federation also possesses a Cabinet, has separate and sometimes secret agencies such as the rumored Section 31, and a legislature, the Federation Council in San Francisco.

Many Federation member worlds (particularly newer members, such as Bajor) operate their own subservient governments and some operate separate military forces for internal security and planetary defense purposes.
