Federation Standard, more commonly referred to as Standard or Standard Tongue, and sometimes as Galacta, Earth Basic, Anglish, English, or Terranglo, is the official language of the United Federation of Planets, used in official documents by the Federation government and used as signage on Federation starships. When the Republic of Bajor joined the Federation in the year 2376, many signs and directories located throughout the planet were altered to include both Bajoran and Standard directions. (TOS novel: Mission to Horatius, DS9 - Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novel: Bajor: Fragments and Omens, FASA RPG module: The Klingons)
- Federation Standard seems to be English or a derivative of English, given the English writings seen on the hulls of Federation starships. It is likely that Standard is simply English with a small amount of loanwords and invented words to fill lexical gaps present in English.
