2161
The Articles of the Federation were signed by United Earth, the Confederacy of Vulcan, the Andorian Empire, United Planets of Tellar, and Alpha Centauri in San Francisco, officially establishing the existence of the United Federation of Planets. Amongst the signatories were such noted figures of the 22nd century as Jonathan Archer of Earth and Soval of Vulcan.
Many residents of the city noted that San Francisco was unusually quiet on August 12, 2161; at least one observer described it as being as though the entire city was holding its breath on that day. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure)
This was also the date that Archer, then a captain in the United Earth Starfleet, gave a historic speech at the signing. With this speech, he declared that it had been United Earth Starfleet's mission, and would become the Federation Starfleet's mission, to continually expand the Federation's knowledge — to "explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before."
