Welcome to Star Trek Answers. What would you like to know?

If the planet is inhabited, the Federation will adopt the name that the native spiceis has for the planet. If the planet is uninhabited, the Federation will name it after the captain of the ship that first discovered it. (eg: Captian Archer discovered the Archer system.)


There is reference made to the "FGC"--"Federation Galactic Catalogue". This would contain the planet-naming nomenclature used in and by the Federation. ProfessorTrek 21:21, July 16, 2011 (UTC)
