Orion script.

An Orion cabaret with signage in Orion on Qo'noS. (2257)

The Orion language was the language of the Orions.

Orion script was commonly found at Orion establishments such as the Orion embassy outpost on Qo'noS and the Orion Syndicate slave auctions on Verex III. (DIS: "Will You Take My Hand?", ENT: "Borderland")

While being held by a Orion guards, wrapped in chains, in a prison cell, suspended from the ceiling, Harcourt Fenton Mudd sarcastically scoffed: "Is there a word in your language for 'overkill'?" (ST: "The Escape Artist")



Background information

The Orion script and characters were introduced in ENT: "Borderland", with additional "fonts" designed for the Orion embassy outpost in DIS: "Will You Take My Hand?".

A number of alien PADDs with Orion script used at the slave auction in "Borderland" were sold as part of the It's A Wrap! sale and auction. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]


The Star Trek: The Role Playing Game (FASA) produced a two-book set, The Orions: Book of Common Knowledge and Book of Deep Knowledge, that described Orion culture and language. Other novels have since described a number of Orion dialects, including backcountry (Crossroad), trader's tongue (Prime Directive), Yrevish (Red Sector) and Orion Prime (Star Trek.)
