Re: List of Federation Members

Well, clearly it's supposed to mean a federation consisting of planets. Another way of phrasing it would be "Planetary Federation."

So what we want is the genitive form of planeta, being used in a partitive sense. And that would be planetae. Unless you go with the earlier Greek form planetes, in which case it would be planetei.

So I think I was close. Maybe something like Foedus Planetae Consociatus or Foedus Planetei Consociatus.
