United Federation of Planets

 

This is the anthem of a fictitious supra-national state on the TV show Star Trek. The United Federation of Planets encompasses several planets into a federation (hense the name), headquartered on Earth. An episode entitled “Take Me Out To The Holosuite” from the Star Trek series Star Trek: Deep Space 9 contained a baseball game with Federation players. One scene from the episode has the anthem of the Federation playing before the ball game starts, much like what happens in sporting games in “real life”. It seems like the Federation anthem is only a wordless melody like some current national anthems (as there was no singer of the anthem in the episode); this might be because of the many alien languages spoken in the Federation. The composer of the music of the episode was listed in the credits as David Bell.
