Presidio 1944

The Presidio in an alternate 1944

The Presidio was the site of an ancient military post adjacent to the city of San Francisco on Earth.

Starfleet Command Headquarters and Starfleet Academy eventually occupied the Presidio, as well as grounds north of the Golden Gate at Horseshoe Bay. Mindful of the site's history, Starfleet maintained the ancient coastal defense installation "Fort Point", as well as the iconic Golden Gate Bridge (completed in 1937) until its catastrophic damage in the Breen attack of 2375. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture; DS9: "The Changing Face of Evil"; VOY: "Endgame")

There was once a mine shaft located on the grounds of the Presidio within which there was an entrance to an underground cavern where Data was decapitated. (TNG: "Time's Arrow, Part II")

The Presidio was founded as the northernmost outpost of the Spanish Empire in 1776, and later occupied by Mexico and the United States of America. It was key to the defense of San Francisco Bay and the North American west coast until its obsolescence in the late 20th century. Currently the headquarters of Industrial Light & Magic are located on the site.
The shore battery "Fort Point" (completed in 1861) is visible as the small brick structure at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge in a scene from Star Trek: The Motion Picture, as Admiral Kirk's travel air tram approaches the air tram station at the Presidio. It can also be clearly seen in the background in 1986 in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
