Starfleet Forces Cardassia (SFC) is the command established for all Starfleet forces assigned to the defend the Cardassian Union as outlined by the Federation-Cardassian Defence Pact following the Second Treaty of Bajor. The forces currently are composed of three Task Forces seconded from their respective Fleets to areas of operations broadly defined as one of the Union's three external boarders. In addition to reporting to their Fleets for administrative leadership, they report to Commander, Starfleet Forces Cardassia (COMSFC). Currently a Vice Admiral billet assumes responsibility for the strategic and policy planning of deployed forces. COMSFC and his or her staff work out of a purpose built headquarters on Cardassia Prime in the Furok area of Lakat City, the capital.

Commander, Starfleet Forces Cardassia (COMSFC)

COMSFC is currently billeted a Vice Admiral rank, with a modest staff for planning and operational coordination. Administrative and logistical support for forces still remain with each TFs parent fleet, eventually all of these will fall under SFC.

Headquarters, Starfleet Forces Cardassia

In mid-2390 the commander and staff moved into their new facility in the capital on Cardassia Prime. The facility is a nine story office building notable for its slightly curved design and transparent aluminum facade, an uncommon feature on the traditionally secretive Cardassia. The facade of the building is also emblazoned with the traditional Federation Starfleet insignia, the asymmetrical arrowhead without background, superimposed with the Cardassian national symbol instead of a typical Starfleet division symbol.

The headquarters build stands opposite a similarly designed nine story building that houses the Civil Defense Force and Intelligence Bureau headquarters. Suspended between them, in the center of the oblong shape the two builds compose, is the Cardassian Sector Operations Center which directs air and space traffic throughout the Cardassian Sector.


SFC utilizes a directorate staff system, where the Commander is supported by Directorates each with an area of focus and lead by a Director.
