- Starfleet Headquarters is referred to as "Comm Central" ("Command Central") in the TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky.
The Headquarters complex was originally built as the command center of the United Earth Starfleet in the early 22nd century on what was previously a portion of Golden Gate National Recreation Area in Marin County, overlooking Horseshoe Bay. After the founding of the United Federation of Planets in 2161, the site was used for the Federation Starfleet. By the 2270s, the headquarters expanded to the Presidio, an ancient military post on the southern side of the Golden Gate where it included an air tram station. The main building was built from lunar rock and glass. (TOS novel: Traitor Winds, TOS novel: Cast No Shadow; TOS movie: Star Trek: The Motion Picture)
