The Golden Gate, its namesake bridge, and the city of San Francisco in 2273.

The City of San Francisco is the capital city of United Earth. (ENT novel: Kobayashi Maru.) A city in the state of California, United States of America, San Francisco is the location of Starfleet Headquarters (TOS movie: The Motion Picture), Starfleet Academy (TNG episode: "The First Duty"), and the Starfleet War Memorial (ENT novel: Last Full Measure), as well as the offices of the President of United Earth (ST novel: Starfleet: Year One) and the United Earth Prime Minister (ENT novel: Kobayashi Maru). In the mid-22nd Century, it was the location of the Coalition of Planets Security Council. (ENT novel: Kobayashi Maru). It receives more shuttle traffic than any other city in the Sol system. The city's most notable landmark is the Golden Gate Bridge. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation.)

History

Throughout the centuries, San Francisco has been one of the most important cities on Earth. When Woodstock was held in the state of New York in the late 1960s, the city was considered the West Coast chapter of this historic event (DS9 episode: "Past Tense, Part II".) Following World War II, the nations of the Earth gathered in San Francisco to create the United Nations Charter, establishing the United Nations in the hopes of avoiding another major war. When first contact was made in 2063, the Confederacy of Vulcan soon established a compound in San Francisco. (ENT episode: "Broken Bow", ENT episode: "Terra Prime".)

In 2062, Oldtown San Francisco was struck by an emormous earthquake, and it took 20 years for the city to be restored. (TOS novel: The Lost Years, TOS novel: A Flag Full of Stars) Another catastrophic earthquake struck in 2109, but under the leadership of Mayor Romanova, recovery was much swifter. Throughout metropolitan areas such as Berkeley and Oakland, seismic regulators were put into place. By the 23rd and 24th centuries, fault line activity is still monitored, but dampened. (TNG novel: A Time for War, A Time for Peace, TNG episode: "Time's Arrow")

Starfleet Academy grounds, San Francisco, circa 2379.

As Humanity started to rebuild and reclaim the Earth, it began to look to the stars again. San Francisco became the capital city of United Earth, with the offices of the UE President and Prime Minister located there, following planetary unification in 2130. (ENT novel: Kobayashi Maru.) It also became the location of United Earth Starfleet Headquarters. (ENT episode: "Broken Bow".) When the Federation Starfleet was founded in 2161, San Francisco continued to serve as the home of the new, amalgamated space force. (TOS movie: The Motion Picture.)

In 2155, San Francisco hosted representatives from Earth, Vulcan, Andor, Denobula, Rigel V, and Coridan III, as the planets began to work together toward the formation of a Coalition of Planets. (ENT episode: "Demons".) Later that year, it became the headquarters of the Coalition Security Council. (ENT novel: Kobayashi Maru.) In 2161, this Coalition finally gave way to the foundation of the United Federation of Planets and the signing of its charter in San Francisco's Candlestick Auditorium. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure.)

The Starfleet War Memorial in San Francisco.

In 2156, the Starfleet War Memorial was completed in San Francisco to honor the lives lost in the Xindi Attack on Earth three years earlier. However, many more names have been added to that list, including lives lost in the Earth-Romulan War and all subsequent conflicts in which the Federation found itself embroiled. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure.)

In 2245 construction was completed on the USS Enterprise, Constitution class, at the San Francisco Ship Yards. (TAS episode: "The Counter-Clock Incident", TOS movie: Star Trek (2009))

40 years later, in 2285, San Francisco became the key target for the Cetacean Probe that was attempting to communicate with the extinct species of humpback whale. The Probe nearly destroyed the Earth, but thankfully, Admiral James T. Kirk, was able to travel back to 1986 and rescue two whales from 20th century San Francisco. (TOS movie: 4.)

San Francisco following the Breen attack of 2375.

In 2375, San Francisco found itself on the front-line of the Dominion War, when a Breen attack force penetrated the Sol system's defenses and launched a devastating attack on the Presidio, where the key Starfleet facilities were located. Thankfully, further attacks on Earth were prevented by a Starfleet task force led by the USS Enterprise-E. Despite this, severe damage was caused to Starfleet Headquarters and the Golden Gate Bridge. (DS9 episode: "The Changing Face of Evil", TNG short story: "Eleven Hours Out"). Restoration crews quickly restored the city to its former glory. (SCE eBook: "Aftermath").

History

Pre-Crisis

After a time-traveling adventure with Superman, Lex Luthor inadvertently caused the infamous San Francisco earthquake of 1906. [1]

In 1942, a villain known as the Hooded Hunchback murdered his cousin Clifford Taylor and rocketed his body from New York to San Francisco. Due to a will made by an eccentric family member, if any heirs die in the state of California, then the fortune passes on to somebody else. The Hunchback (in reality Lieutenant governor Morgan) stood to inherit the entire family fortune but for the intervention of the super-hero Starman. [2]

Post-Crisis

Several years ago, the New God known as Lightray traveled to San Francisco searching for humans who held an aspect of the Anti-Life Equation. He found such a receptacle in a Vietnam veteran named Richard Roe. [3]

In 1993, Yakuza member Mizoguchi Kenji committed a string of murders, targeting models who possessed tattoos given to them by John Oakes, a student of the Tattooed Man. [4]

The Teen Titans relocated from New York to San Francisco and established a new Titans Tower. [5]

The Terror Titans attacked Titans Tower in an effort to assasinate the Ravager. As a result, Titans Tower was nearly destroyed. [6]

San Francisco is a city in Northern California. After the Great War, its population consists mostly of the Shi, who are the descendants of the crew of a Chinese submarine that crashed there, and of the members of a religious cult known as the Hubologists.

The Shi have managed to keep many of their old traditions and customs, which is more than many American groups can say. Somehow, the city was spared a good deal of destruction, although radiation levels were high for a while. As of 2242, two clans currently battle for control of San Francisco, and the style of martial arts that will reign in the future. The Shi manage to run an extensive weapons trade, offering pieces of technology usually only available to groups like the Brotherhood of Steel. Where they manage to get these items is unknown.

There is also a population of artists, disenchanted people from various cities, and ex-military personnel that have taken over an old oil tanker still floating in the harbor. They will usually trade expertise for goods, although they prefer to be left alone.

The third major group, which does not trade, is a religious community called the Hubologists. They are obsessed with an old space shuttle they found parked at the airport, and are attempting to make it fly again, so they can join their "gods" in the heavens above.

The New California Republic has little influence in San Francisco, and the Shi are quite happy to avoid them while the Hubologists don’t concern themselves with such things.

There are few foreigners in San Francisco and newcomers are easily noticed. Due to its location in between the Military Base, Navarro and a highly desolate flat patch of hazardous land in the wastes it is logical to assume that few but heavily armed caravans traverse these paths. Remnants of the Master's army, Enclave Patrols, press gangs, Hubologists, and mutated animals plague the surrounding area making it inaccessible to weak or crudely armed travelers.

Groups

San Francisco is populated by the Shi and governed by the Emperor. The Emperor and his aides live in a steel palace on the east side of San Francisco. The palace contains vast and advanced scientific labs of various fields and the scientists working there are some of the best in the wasteland. Their main opposition are the Hubologists who have scientists of their own, yet have proven to be significantly behind the technological innovation of the Shi.

The Brotherhood of Steel has a large outpost stationed in San Francisco. The outpost is undiscernable from other Brotherhood outposts yet contains a more extensive basement stocked with Brotherhood technology and armaments. The Brotherhood maintains a low profile and sails below anyone's radar. This is a sign of the Brotherhood's waning influence.

Notes

If you bring the Chryslis Highwayman to chinatown, you have a small chance of having it be glitched so that only the trunk appears, rendering the drive function useless.

San Francisco appears only in Fallout 2.

History

The City and County of San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California and the fourteenth-most populous in the United States, with a 2006 estimated population of 744,041. It is located on the tip of the San Francisco Peninsula and is the focal point of the San Francisco Bay Area. San Francisco is the second most densely populated major city in the United States.

In 1776, the Spanish settled the tip of the San Francisco peninsula, establishing a fort at the Golden Gate and a mission named for Francis of Assisi. The California Gold Rush in 1848 propelled the city into a period of rapid growth. After being devastated by the 1906 earthquake and fire, San Francisco was quickly rebuilt.

[1]

San Francisco is renowned for its chilly summer fog, steep rolling hills, an eclectic mix of Victorian and modern architecture, and its peninsular location surrounded on three sides by the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. Famous landmarks include the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, the cable cars, the Transamerica Pyramid, Coit Tower, and Chinatown.

X-Men

When Archangel saved the mayor of San Francisco, she offered the X-Men and any powered or depowered mutant sanctuary in the city. She openly announces to the world that San Francisco is rejecting the 50 State Initiative, with the X-Men as their protectors.

San Francisco at night.

San Francisco is a North American city on Earth, on the Pacific coast of California. Since the 21st century, it has been one of the most important cities on the planet. It was the headquarters for both the United Earth Starfleet and the Federation Starfleet. The city also housed chambers of the Federation Council, and, with Paris, was at the political center of the United Federation of Planets. (ENT: "Broken Bow", Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

In addition to Starfleet Headquarters, many other Starfleet facilities were located in San Francisco, including Starfleet Academy and the Communications Research Center. (TNG: "The First Duty", VOY: "Pathfinder")

Numerous Starfleet officers kept residences in San Francisco, either short- or long-term. Admiral James T. Kirk had an apartment there in the 2280s. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

In its long history, San Francisco has seen many turbulent times. Built along a fault line, the city suffered numerous earthquakes. It also weathered World War III, and was the location where the peace treaty ending that conflict was signed. In 2286, San Francisco was nearly wiped-out by the Cetacean probe's assault on Earth; and the city was the primary target in the Breen attack on Earth during the Dominion War in 2375. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, DS9: "The Changing Face of Evil")

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Yellow cars this way... green cars that way...

San Francisco, California, seems to be a multiversal sufferer of Transformers-related abuse. It has been targeted for nukes at least twice—once it was hit successfully, and another time it was "only" contaminated by nuclear fallout.

And yet the rent is so high. We don't understand. Makes you long for the days when it was only being savaged by weird robot bird-dragons that hatched out of asteroids or angry gestalts.

Generation 2 continuity

The tourist trade never recovered.

Jhiaxus of the Cybertronian Empire fired upon San Francisco with an energy weapon of some sort, vaporizing the city to a radius of several miles—simply as an "up yours" gesture to Optimus Prime. Dark Shadows!

Dreamwave continuity

Great, there go my insurance rates again.

As part of his plan to eradicate Earth and to emphasise to Optimus Prime that humans weren't worth fighting for, Megatron launched a massed assault on San Francisco. (Why do comic-book Decepticon leaders target this specific city when they want to get at Prime? Maybe the Autobot leader spends his summers there). Devastator tore through the city before the Autobots arrived to stop Megatron, but the damage was still extensive.

Then General Hallo decided to fire a nuclear missile at the city to wipe out all the Transformers, forcing Superion to sacrifice his life to save everyone else. While the actual missile strike was stopped, the shock wave from the blast still hit the city. Ouch. Prime Directive

Keepers Trilogy

As it turns out, San Francisco was contaminated with radiation from the fallout.
