Sources and Comments

The table of Federation Presidents is based on Star Trek canon, augmented with data from modules of the FASA RPG and the Articles of the Federation novelization and other sources. This information was culled from the Presidential Timeline on Memory Beta. Due to differences between sources, dates have been adjusted to create a single continuum, and some Presidents may have been excluded or invented. The species of some Presidents have been changed from the sources to establish a less Human-centric Federation.
