StarBase 118 Flight Control Department
The Flight Control Department (FLY-CON) of StarBase 118 is tasked with coordinating the traffic of all vessels (StarFleet, allied, and civilian) moving in and out of the immediate vicinity of the base.
Assignment and jurisdiction
Flight Control acts in a similar manner to "air traffic control" of any planet's aerial plane movement. Dozens, and sometimes hundreds of small and large craft move regularly in and out of the base, and through the surrounding area, and it is critical that their movements are both efficient and safe.
Generally, FLY-CON is responsible for an area with a diameter of approximately 100,000 kilometers around the starbase. Vessels may not travel to warp, or drop from warp, anywhere within this area. Vessels traveling within the Trinity/Serellan sectors, but outside the direct range of any planets or bases, are within the jurisdiction of Sector 118 Traffic Control.
