1. When was it known the ship was built at a place called San Francisco Fleet Yards and that place was up in space as opposed to on the ground? The dedication plaque says San Francisco, Calif, which makes me wonder if the original intention was the ship was built in San Francisco itself, on the ground. 2. Was it determined in TMP that Starfleet HQ was in San Francisco or was it known before? I wonder if both these ideas were solidified in The Motion Picture but am curious if there were background or fanon ideas suggesting it before that. Cheerios.
