This is one of the reasons why i continue to consider Blogger the serious choice of a serious blogger.
In 2161 the United Federation of Planets will be founded by the Andorians, Humans, Tellarites, and Vulcans. Their headquarters will be in Paris, Earth while the military and exploration corps, Starfleet, will be based in San Francisco, California, Earth (Sector 001, in the Alpha Quadrant). Oddly enough this is precisely where the United Nations was founded on October 24, 1945. So you see, it makes perfect sense that Blogger headquarters are in the Bay Area.
