United Federation of Planets

Post  @KTagloH on Mon Jul 19, 2010 6:23 pm


The Federation is a playable faction in Star Trek Online. Captains are able to play as one of many races, including but not limited to Humans, Bolians, Andorians and Bajorans. As a member of Starfleet, Federation players have access to a host of ships and configurations, all of which can be customized to fit any Captain’s play style.

Federation gameplay is broken up into “seasons,” which are themed and feature Episode missions that develop Star Trek Online’s story. The three seasons available at launch will feature Klingon, Romulan and Borg storylines that eventually weave together in a compelling plot.

However, there’s more to do than participate in your own Episodes. Members of the Federation will be able to explore procedurally-generated Star Clusters to truly go where no one has gone before. And for the battle-hardened Captain, PvP combat with Klingon players isn’t out of the question, either.

The Klingon Empires view of the Federation

Post  @KTagloH on Mon Jul 19, 2010 6:26 pm

They call themselves the United Federation of Planets. In reality, they’re the United Federation of nosy, gossipy, meddlesome do-gooders! They claim everything they do is for the greater good, to promote “peaceful exploration.” Never trust a species that claims to put the interests of others first. It means they’re either selling something or trying to steal your bat’leth.

The Federation will boast about the vast number of planets and species they represent, but make no mistake, it is the Humans who control the Federation. The center of the Federation government is on the Human homeworld. For a wonder, the current President of the Federation is a Suarian and not a Human, but I doubt he does anything the Humans don’t approve.

The Vulcans are the other great power within the Federation, and the Humans are absolutely in awe of the passionless bastards. The Andorians and Tellarites co-founded the Federation with the Vulcans and Humans, but their influence is not so great in comparison.

Starfleet – the military arm of the Federation – claims to observe a “Prime Directive” not to interfere with other species. But all they do is interfere. They involve themselves in conflicts that don’t affect them, like our war with the Gorn or our battles with the Romulans. And what a mess they made between the Bajorans and the Cardassians! The Bajorans are calling for vengeance on all of Cardassia, and the Federation can’t provide it. Somehow, even under Federation surveillance, the Cardassians managed to misplace every last “war criminal.” And let us not forget it was the Federation that brought us the Borg!

The Federation has been a thorn in the side of the Klingon Empire for longer than I care to admit. But not for much longer, I suspect. Not for very much longer.

The Federations view of itself

Post  @KTagloH on Mon Jul 19, 2010 6:26 pm

The United Federation of Planets is an alliance of hundreds of different species, all working together towards a common goal. As one of the greatest servants of the Federation once said, it is “a dream that became a reality and spread throughout the stars.”

We uphold the rights of all species to justice, equality, and liberty. We also believe in the pursuit of knowledge and exploration. To that end, we created Starfleet. It serves as our peace-keeping and exploratory arm. In times of need, it also serves as our defense.

In 2161 Vulcans, Humans, Andorians, and Tellarites joined together into an alliance that later became the Federation. What began as a pact for mutual protection against the Romulans became something far greater. Since that day, we have encountered and initiated diplomatic relations with countless new species. We have advanced scientific knowledge within the Alpha Quadrant. We have also reached out the olive branch of peace across several quadrants.

We have faced dark times, however. We have warred with the Klingons upon several different occasions, although there have been times when we reached an alliance of mutual respect. We have faced threats from the Romulans, although today we aid them in rebuilding after the loss of their planet. We battled against the implacable forces of the Borg, although we have also given succor to those who were once Borg. We have proven our ability to put aside grievances and work for the good of all: we united with both Romulans and Klingons to protect our quadrant from the ravages of the Dominion.

The Federation will always, must always, fight to protect the rights of all species.
