    • Federation Diplomatic Service

      While most major components of the Federation Government report directly to the Federation Council itself, the Federation Diplomatic Service is unique in that it reports directly to the Federation President. A civilian agency, the primary responsibility of the Diplomatic Service is to conduct diplomatic missions on behalf of the Federation. The Service represents the Federation in its efforts to develop new relationships with newly encountered civilizations and to further cement relationships with galactic neighbors. Because of their mission, the Diplomatic Service will also work to mediate disputes that occur on existing Federation worlds. The Service accomplishes this task through its Ambassadors, specialized agents trained in diplomacy. The Diplomatic Service itself is led by the Diplomatic Secretary, who is responsible for all issues of diplomacy and protocol within the Federation and is selected from the Federation Council. During diplomatic missions, orders from the Diplomatic Secretary may supersede even those of the President if the Federation's needs are best served. The Diplomatic Service works closely with Starfleet to accomplish its objectives. Ambassadors from the Diplomatic Service will frequently work with representatives of the Starfleet Diplomatic Corps to accomplish objectives. Ambassadors may be employed on frontier Starbases or on Starfleet's deep space exploration vessels.
