3331: Space Oddity
Milky Way Federation
The Milky Way Federation was created by the human race three-hundred years ago. Though most of its key council members are humans, many other races that call the Milky Way Galaxy their home now have representation in the MWF. Over the course of its existence, the MWF has pioneered the colonization of surrounding planets, controlled the policing of civilized systems, and kept space piracy out of the galaxy at large.
The MWF used to use Earth as a base of operations, but after such a long time and so much change, the Federation created a special space station to call its headquarters. This station is called the FSS (Federation Systems Ship) Continent and, though it is the size of a space station, it is nearly as mobile as a starship. This allows the Federation to move its base as needed or desired. In any case, the MWF establishes outposts on all worlds and stations it considers part of the Federation, meaning most of the civilized planets in the galaxy.
