Federation Day was a day of celebration commemorating the founding of the United Federation of Planets.
On October 11, 2161, the Solar News Network distributed an article titled It's Federation Day!, detailing the events of the founding of the United Federation of Planets. The clipping text comes from a background material created for Star Trek: Generations, and was not seen on-screen.
Deanna Troi suggested playing this game to the rest of the senior staff members of the USS Enterprise-D in 2368, however, Worf found it difficult to ascertain exactly what he had in his hand with so many wild cards. (TNG: "The Outcast")
