Re: Limitless Alien Languages (or lack thereof?)

I don't think we near enough alien languages to assume any one represents the entire species.
And it's fair to assume that once a species gets to the point of being able to quickly travel and communicate with people across their entire planet, that more dominant languages will emerge. Even now English is becoming very widespread across many countries as a second language. I can see this being a natural progression for many of the species in Star Trek.
