Heh?! You mean how they get the FC into your base, or why the hell just one bombardement destroy your HQ, or how you can prevent him from bombing you?!
Normally the FC get into your base via teleporting with Terminators or just him alnoe with the orbital relay. When he is in your base he push the button and it's a GG for you. The only way to hold him off from doing this is if you a) can kill him before he finish the animation, or b) disturb him by artellery, rockettower or whatever beats him around. But the best way to prevent it is if you don't let him get the Orbital Relay...

The key as stated to prevent OB death is disruption. Since you are playing SM upgraded turrets or WW are your best bet.
For you to use your OB you need to keep enemy from disrupting your force commander. Massed WW take out turrets quickly.
One thing that can keep you alive and is a good idea regardless is a second HQ in an ally or secure location. Have often seen this used. Youre foe attacks and destroys your orginal base using a massive amount of units and req and then you strike his base from your alternate location. If he is using Assault Termies it will take them forever to get back to defend base.

Once the orbital relay is built, select or build the force commander, and he should have gained an ability called orbital bombardment. Click this, and your mouse should turn into a freaky sign with laser beams going into the air, then click on the opposing HQ. Make sure there isn't anything knoching the commander around, or he wont be able to call in the strike porperly

I think ImmortalChaos spelled it out pretty clearly. Asked and answered would apply here.
