In this capacity, the FSA collected and correlated political, military and social information on foreign governments. These specialists typically acted in information processing roles, however, they were also known to have performed counter-intelligence duties. ({{rpg|FASA RPG|The Federation}}) The FSA's military counterpart was [[Starfleet Intelligence]]. ({{n|DS9|sub={{st|Typhon Pact}}|Zero Sum Game}})

In the 2260's, the organization was concerned about threats from [[Vulcan|Vulcans]] against [[Memory Prime]] after they learned that one of the [[Adepts of T'Pel]] had been hired for a contract against a target on the planetoid installation. ({{n|TOS|{{nd|Memory Prime}}}})

''The TOS novel Memory Prime identifies the organization as the "Federation Security Service" during the 2260s.''
 
   
 
In [[2285]], an operative of the FSA took Doctor [[Leonard McCoy]] into custody after McCoy began exhibiting erratic behavior due to his experience with [[Project Genesis]] and [[Spock]]'s ''[[katra]]''. The operative, who identified himself as "Federation Security", warned McCoy not to discuss Genesis in public, and after McCoy clumsily attempted a [[Vulcan nerve pinch]], told him that "you're going to get a nice long rest, Doctor." ({{mnc|TOS|The Search for Spock}})

From [[2381]] on, an elite division of FSA known as the [[Protection Detail]] was also responsible for a unique duty: Guarding the safety of the [[President of the United Federation of Planets]]. ({{n|TNG|sub=Cold Equations|Silent Weapons}}, {{n|ST|sub={{st|Destiny}}|Mere Mortals}}) Prior to its formation, the primary responsibility of protecting the Federation President fell to the authority of [[Starfleet Security]].

At one point, the FSA was headed by the [[High Commissioner]] of the [[Federation Security Council]]. ({{rpg|FASA RPG|The Federation}}) By [[2382]], its leader was known as the Federation Security Agency [[Director]]. That same year, [[Rujat Suwadi]] of [[Zakdorn]] served as FSA Director. Later that year, he was called to a high-level meeting with Federation President [[Nanietta Bacco]] at the [[Château Thelian]] after a [[Typhon Pact]] spy successfully stole classified data on the [[Federation Starfleet]]'s [[slipstream drive]] system from the [[Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards]] in orbit of [[Mars]].

As one of the Federation's primary law enforcement organizations, the Federation Security Agency operated a fleet of interceptors which was crewed by officers and empowered to enforce Federation law in its territory. In [[2384]], one of its interceptors, the ''[[Sirriam]]'', was destroyed by the [[Breen Militia]] during a routine patrol of the [[Komatsu sector]]. Later that year, the FSA took several losses after successfully preventing two assassination attempts on President Bacco by the [[Breen Confederacy]], who was in the midst of conducting secret talks with [[Imperator]] [[Sozzerozs]] of the [[Gorn]] on [[Orion]].

In 2385, during the brief secession of [[Andoria]] from the Federation during the Andorian Fertility Crisis, the FSA was responsible for collecting intelligence regarding the involvement of the Typhon Pact, specifically the [[Tholian Assembly]] in Andorian affairs.

Following the deactivation of the [[Uraei]] surveillance program and exposure of [[Section 31]] to the public in [[2386]], the FSA was tasked with bringing many of its top operatives and assets to justice and keeping them in custody until trials could be held. Most Section 31 operatives were held at the [[FSA Detention Facility]] in [[San Francisco]].

Among the arrestees was Admiral [[William Ross]]. He was murdered by FSA agent [[Margo Dempsey]] in retaliation for the death of her husband [[Clark Dempsey|Clark]] in a shuttle crash which had been engineered by Section 31 to assassinate a Federation diplomat. The FSA and Starfleet later determined that following her husband's death, Dempsey had taken steps to ensure that information did not show up in any of the background investigations the FSA conducted of agents who would be guarding Section 31 operatives taken into custody. Following Ross' death, the FSA worked with Starfleet to revamp its procedures, with anyone who would be coming in contact with those Section 31 operatives subjected to complete background checks. Furthermore, the list of people approved to have contact with these operatives was limited and required approval from top officials in the Federation government. ({{n|TNG|Available Light}})

:''Based on the duties and responsibilites of the organization, the Federation Security Agency is comparable to real-life organizations such as the United States Secret Service, which is tasked with protecting the nation's leaders. As well as the United Kingdom's Security Service (MI5), and the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); both of which are tasked with domestic intelligence and security.''

:''It appears that the organization has gone through several name changes during its existence. As the TOS novel Memory Prime lists it as the "Federation Security Service" in the 2260s, the "Federation Security Legion" in the 2280s, and finally the "Federation Security Agency" by the 2380s. This is not dissimilar to the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which was originally established as the Bureau of Investigation (BOI) in 1908, before it changed its name to the United States Bureau of Investigation (USBI) in 1932, and eventually to its current name Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 1935.''
