San Francisco Bay was an estuary on the western coast of the North American continent on Earth. A strait connected this bay to the North Pacific Ocean. Within the bay, there were a small number of islands, including Angel Island and Treasure Island. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home) The cities that developed around this bay were known as the San Francisco Metropolitan Area. This area was in Earth Sector 2. (Star Trek Into Darkness)

This bay was named after Saint Francis of Assisi. Earth Sectors 45 to 49 were associated with San Francisco Bay; however, the exact association was not explicitly defined.

In an alternate timeline the bay was visited in 1944 by Commander Charles Tucker III and Ensign Travis Mayweather in Shuttlepod 1 of the starship Enterprise NX-01. Unaware at first, that they had traveled into the World War II era in an alternate timeline, they found their shuttle under attack by a squadron of P-51 Mustang fighters and beat a hasty retreat. A substantial United States Navy Task Force was seen gathered in the bay. (ENT: "Zero Hour", "Storm Front")

The entire San Francisco Bay scene was created as a CGI effect by Eden FX (ENT Season 4 DVD-special feature, "Visual Effects Magic")

In 2155, a beam fired from the verteron array on Mars by xenophobe John Frederick Paxton was redirected into the bay, missing its intended target of Starfleet Command. (ENT: "Terra Prime")

In 2258 in the alternate reality, the Narada deployed its drilling platform over the inlet of San Francisco Bay, right next to the Golden Gate Bridge, and began drilling a hole toward Earth's core. The drilling platform was destroyed by Spock in the Jellyfish, its debris falling into the bay. (Star Trek)

In the alternate reality of 2259, a map of the San Francisco Bay was part of a collection of graphics and video media that were displayed on a powerwall in Admiral Christopher Pike's office. Within a few days, the USS Vengeance crashed into the bay, devastating both Alcatraz and San Francisco. (Star Trek Into Darkness)

In 2286, the captured Klingon Bird-of-Prey HMS Bounty crash-landed in the bay, due to the effects of the Whale Probe, but stayed afloat long enough to release the humpback whales George and Gracie. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Following the Breen attack on Earth, a ship was seen to have crashed into the bay. (DS9: "The Changing Face of Evil")

Two shots of the San Francisco Bay were included in the theatrical version of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, appearing firstly in an establishing shot of both the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge and then in the background of the air tram station's interior. For the director's edition DVD of the film, the bay was shown in three new establishing shots and its usage as the facility's background was subtly altered. "We changed the bay [as seen from the air tram station] to lighten it up and be consistent with the (Golden Gate) bridge [shots]," explained Michael Matessino, the Restoration Supervisor for the director's edition. (Star Trek: Communicator issue 136, p. 28)
