This is something I've never really understood.

Yes, I know Cryptic labelled the faction Federation, but it's a very inacurrate name.

Because we're not actually playing as Federation characters!

We play as Starfleet characters.

The Federation is the generic term for civilians, Starfleet is the military arm.

It would be like going up to a member of the Navy and calling them a civvie.
