The First Federation was a government in the Milky Way Galaxy. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver")

In 2293, the location of the First Federation in the Milky Way Galaxy was labeled in a star chart that was in Captain James T. Kirk's quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-A. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, okudagram)


First contact between the Federation and the First Federation occurred in 2266, when the USS Enterprise was conducting a star mapping mission and unknowingly crossed into First Federation space, destroying a marker buoy in the process.

Shortly thereafter, the Enterprise encountered the massive flagship of the First Federation, the Fesarius. Charged with violating their territory, the Enterprise and its crew were threatened with destruction. However, after a series of bluffs and counter-bluffs, it was discovered that the encounter had only been a test, designed by the Fesarius' captain, Balok. A cultural exchange was proposed, with Enterprise crewman Dave Bailey remaining on board the Fesarius. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver")

Trade between the First Federation and various Alpha Quadrant species continued into the 24th century, with tranya being a major export - Quark's on Deep Space 9 served the beverage. (DS9: "Facets")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (Pg. 36, "United Federation of Planets I") and the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Stellar Cartography", p. 10; "Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the First Federation was located in the Alpha Quadrant. The First Federation's homeworld and capital system were named Fesarius. The primary of this system was a K-class star. There were warning buoys encircling First Federation territory in the late 24th century.
