members of the Federation[edit]

As members of the Federation, the article lists a number of species as opposed to a list of planets or states. Not only the great majority of semi-canon sources cite a list of planet as members of the Federation, but also the mere idea of membership for secies is frankly unlikely, as the citizienship of a person arguably depends upon his/her citizienship of a member state and not upon his/her species of birth.

For example: Worf is likely a Federation citizen (adopted by federation citizens and serving for years in Starfleet), while the humans living on the worlds gave by the Federation to the Cardassian Union/Empire in "Voyage's End" are not. Gbnogkfs 16 August 2006, 10:53 (UT)

Membership[edit]

A list of member worlds, without context, references, or links to articles with expansion, seems a bit too in-universe and trivial. I've removed it. (Alas, yes, most of the article itself lacks context, references and is in-universe and trivia-laden.) --EEMIV (talk) 16:35, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

How else will the visitors to Wikipedia know about which planets are in the United Federation of Planets? Rtkat3 (talk) 12:31, December 17 2012 (UTC)

Added Government Information from Star Trek Movies and the Star Trek Wiki, it seems silly without it. --Commonwealth Historian 06:10, 14 May 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Commonwealth3 (talkcontribs)

Languages in the infobox[edit]

The info box currently lists "english" "french" and "various human languages" as "Official language(s)" Besides the questions of whether using that type of info box for a fictional orginization on an encyclopedia is approprate and if the fictional orginization even has an offical language, I have this question: Why give French special treatment, English makes sense as it is the language spoken in the show, the only reason French is listed is that one character in one show of the fictional universe uses it. I would advocate for either "none" or removing French from the list of "Official language(s)" CombatWombat42 (talk) 20:25, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Never noticed this in the infobox. I can't recall anything broadcast, screened, or printed that indicates an "official language" for Star Trek the UFP (well, perhaps some 70s Franz Joseph-ish references). I suggest removing all items from that field. --EEMIV (talk) 21:43, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Agreed/ Dbrodbeck (talk) 22:32, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

I don't see how you can assume English is spoken in the show when they use automatic translators. Transcendence (talk) 00:56, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Can someone explain, as part of this article on the Federation's political system, how the federation works politcally? How, for instance, does Vulcan have an ambassador to the federation? Does Kansas have an Ambassador in Washington DC, does Manitoba have a Ambassador in Ottawa, does Queensland have an Ambassador in Canberra? Avalon (talk) 09:18, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

WP:NOTFORUM, does the U.S. have an Ambassador to the U.N.? to NATO? CombatWombat42 (talk) 18:03, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Incorrect Hyperlink[edit]

The paragraph under “President” contains a link to an episode of DSP entitled “Extreme Measures.” The current link goes to the movie by the same name. The correct URL should be: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extreme_Measures_(Star_Trek:_Deep_Space_Nine) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.232.250.55 (talk) 12:54, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
