Federation Council

Made up of more than 180 member worlds spread out over 8,000 light years, the United Federation of Planets remains one of the few major political groups which is not controlled by a single race of beings. Instead, the Federation is ruled by the Federation Council, which is composed of representatives from various member planets. Its ideals stem from the Constitution of the United Federation of Planets, drafted when the group was formed in 2161, which assures mutual protection and benefit of all member worlds and citizens.

Federation ideals put peace and exploration before conflict, and Federation ships will never attack without warning, as their operating procedures forbid overt hostility. Federation borders are maintained with diplomacy and treaties, and the group has never assumed an expansionist posture in regards to its territory. Planets which wish to gain entry to the Federation must be governed by a unified planetary government and follow strict nondiscriminatory policies.

The Federation has been involved in several major galactic conflicts in its relatively short history. Its early history was marked by prolonged tensions with the Klingon Empire, which lessened after the Organian Peace Treaty in 2267. The two empires are now on friendly terms after the Khitomer Conference of 2293, despite the occasional setback. Federation relations with the Romulans have also been strained, stemming from a bitter war which ended in the creation of the Romulan Neutral Zone, violation of which was considered an act of war. The Federation fought alongside the Klingon and Romulan Empires in the Dominion War against the Cardassians and the Dominion, a group of expansionist races from the Gamma Quadrant.
