Palais de la Concorde
At the heart of the Federation lies the passion of its people.
What does it take to run the Federation?
Who are the people who lead this galaxy and shape its future?
How do we respond when warfare and dangers are constantly abound in this ever-changing universe?
Newly elected Federation President Jarul Bezar has begun her first year as head of the largest inter-planetary coalition within the galaxy. The tribulations of the past continue to clash with the challengers of the present, and it is up to the Palais de la Concorde to safely navigate the government into a prosperous future. Within the upper levels of the government office, the Chief of Staff helps to calm and focus the storm of activity that perpetuates around the Office of the President. In the Communications hub, the Director plots a cohesive narrative with the Press Secretary and Speech Writer, while personal secretaries and admin staff ensures Bezar keeps on to that all-important schedule. The President is also guided by her Special Advisors and Attorney General, for their wisdom and respected opinions.
At the controls of the Federation machinery, the Cabinet directs the organisation between war and peace. The Secretary of Defence works closely with her Starfleet counterparts, as well as liaisons from Federation Security and Intelligence, to ensure the sovereignty of the Federation is well-protected and defended. The Secretary of the Exterior provides the ample prowess of the Federation’s diplomatic abilities, helping to promote the values and humanitarianism that is still needed within the galaxy, and putting words before phasers.
Meanwhile, the many species and planetary representatives that make up the Federation itself gather in the Council – to debate, negotiate, and work together to keep their legislative agenda moving. This is where principles meets politics, where ambitions meets reality, and wishes meets compromise. It is a difficult tight-rope walk when you have hundreds of Federation members all with their own backgrounds, perspectives, and goals. But they must convene together, under the President’s guidance, to fulfil their commitment to the people they represent.
