The United Federation of Planets of the 23rd century is one of the playable factions in Star Trek Online (referred to at character creation as "TOS Starfleet"). Not a faction in true sense of the word, the TOS Federation presents an alternate starting experience for Federation Captains before taking them into the regular Federation storyline. Created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series, players are given the ability to create a new captain in that era and are set on an adventure featuring classic story lines, locations, celebrities, and era-appropriate starships.

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 | edit source]

Upon starting a new TOS 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 combat, the career choice and racial traits affect the gameplay and strategies used by the player. When the player completes (or skips) the tutorial, a Pioneer-class starship is assigned to them.

Classes[edit | edit source]

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:

Tactical Engineering Science

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

Races[edit | edit source]

TOS Federation characters can choose one of the four founding races of the United Federation of Planets. A player's choice of race is important and cannot be changed, so it is advisable to choose carefully.

Starships[edit | edit source]

See main article: Federation playable starships

The only faction-specific starship is the Pioneer-class vessel. In addition, all TOS Federation characters receive the Class F Shuttle from the 23rd Century Bundle for free by completing “Explore Earth Spacedock”. If the player has purchased the TOS Constitution Class Cruiser from the C-Store, it can also be claimed from the Earth Spacedock (23rd Century) Ship Vendor.

After “The Battle of Caleb IV” has been completed, TOS Federation players can use any starship available to the 25th century Federation players. As part of the Agents Of Yesterday expansion, several new starships, inspired by the designs from 23rd century, were added to the C-Store. However, these starships are not available to players until after joining the main Federation timeline.

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 may have 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.

Storyline missions[edit | edit source]

The tutorial and Agents of Yesterday arc are all set in 2270, which is a year after the end of the final season of The Original Series, and during the second season of The Animated Series. However, some missions within this arc involve time travel back to the three seasons of the original series.

Once “The Battle of Caleb IV” has been completed, player is sent to 2409 and integrated into the standard Federation storyline. TOS players have some specific dialogue to reflect the events they were part of in the past and, to differentiate the two factions, they retain the 23rd century effects and animations (e.g. the transporter effect).

Temporal Agent Recruitment[edit | edit source]

Main article: Temporal Agent Recruitment

All 23rd century characters created during this six-week event received a [Temporal Transponder], becoming Temporal Agents. This gave them access to numerous new benefits and rewards, similar to the Delta Recruitment event.

Temporal Agents played a story which paralleled that of their faction, but had additional unique goals. Tasked with uncovering probes left by the Na'kuhl, Temporal Agents would sometimes find additional mission steps, marked with a Temporal objective.png symbol, leading to something on the map which would help fight the Temporal Cold War.

Politics[edit | edit source]

See Memory Alpha United Federation of Planets

The United Federation of Planets (UFP) is a federal representative republic with its capital located in the cities of Paris and San Francisco on Earth (Vulcan Sector). The constitutional document of the Federation is the Federation Charter, which was signed in the 22nd century by founding members Andoria, Earth, Tellar Prime and Vulcan.

Its head of state and government is an elected President. The legislature is the Federation Council and the Federation Supreme Court is its judiciary. In addition to the main organs of state, a number of executive agencies operate such as the Department of Temporal Investigations. There are also unofficial agencies such as the rumored Section 31.

Federation members maintain a high degree of local sovereignty over their own affairs, and a certain degree of autonomous interstellar diplomacy. They often maintain their own local military forces for internal security and planetary defense.

History[edit | edit source]

See also the full article on Federation history on Memory Alpha.
"Every generation, Starfleet officers hear the call of duty. Hidden dangers lurk in space, and the threat of Klingon attack has made even the most stout-hearted reconsider their choice to travel throughout the stars. A last ditch effort to find a common ground could end this conflict, but there are many who oppose peace. If the Federation is to be saved from chaos, new officers will need to take up the task of restoring peace."

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. During the 23rd century, Federation continued expanding through the admittance of more and more worlds. As a result, Starfleet captains often come into conflict with other major neighboring races, such as the Klingon Empire and the Romulan Star Empire.
