Sometime before the 25th century, the Planetary Union was founded. Though the current command of the Union is on Earth, it is unclear who the original founders were or their species. Planetary Union Central was established as the operating building for the Union.
Union Central is the hub of the Planetary Union, a skyscraper abutting Central Park in New York City. Desk admirals command a retinue of officers and communicate with the fleet in space through messages. Messages may be encoded for security or for marked high or low priority. Fleet officers keep Union Central apprised through reports filed after incidents.[n 1]
Union Central operates a database of files of Union personnel, including academic records and aptitude ratings.
