Federation Codification Bureau

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Federation Codification Bureaus or Federation Codification Bureaux (FCB) are organizations–typically a government agency of a Federation member–in charge of maintaining and management of the Starfleet Codification System (SCS) database within a given Federation entity.

The various Federation Codification Bureaus are governed by Starfleet Logistical Command (SLC), with each member's Planetary Codification Bureau controlling and issuing its own unique stock Numbers. United Federation of Planets (UFP) membership is not required to do so and non-UFP (or "Partner") systems can allowed to join if recommended, vetted, and approved by SLC.

Members that participate in the SCS follow common standards and techniques to assign Federation Stock Number (FSNs) to items of supply in their military or governmental inventory. The FCB within each member organization centrally assigns their system FSNs. The assignment of an FSN denotes a distinctive item of supply; to eliminate confusion, the number will never be re-used.

The first members to receive FCB code numbers were the Vulcan (100 and 101), Alpha Centauri (012), Andoria (013) and Tellar Prime (014) - as they had already been involved in the program when it codified. Starfleet was assigned the FCB code (011) for its items as it was the next number available after the 000 to 010 block set aside for the Sol System's own use.

Vulcan received (100) and (101) because it was already supplying items for Earth before the Federation's founding and the other founding member FCB codes were sequentially assigned as backfill numbers. The Vulcan number 100 was for old/current items of supply and 101 is for new items after the system's codification.
