Re: Starfleet and San Francisco

The hippie movement in San Francisco can be traced back to 1965, if not earlier.

Re: Starfleet and San Francisco

The importance of San Francisco as a major center of naval activity and ship construction was almost certainly the reason for choosing it as the site of Starfleet headquarters.

From TMOST:
The unit components [of the Enterprise] were built at the Star Fleet Division of what is still called the San Francisco Navy Yards, and the vessel was assembled in space.
The "Summer of Love," which brought the hippie movement into the public consciousness, occurred in 1967.

Re: Starfleet and San Francisco

OK, we know that Enterprise was constructed at San Fransisco, based on the dedication plaque, and that goes back to the very beginning of the series. But IIRC there's nothing in TOS itself that says San Fransisco is the site of Starfleet Command, right? As far as I know, that wasn't established until TMP. Or is there something in TMoST that mentions this?
