Paris is the capital city of the United Federation of Planets, located on the European continent in the country of France on Earth. It is the location of the Palais de la Concorde, the Federation seat of government, housing the Federation Council Chambers and the office of the Federation President. (TOS movie: The Undiscovered Country, ST novel: Articles of the Federation.)

Paris has a long and distinguished history in Earth culture. In 2130, the Place de la Concorde in Paris was the site for the signing of the Traité d'Unification, the treaty that established United Earth's existence. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation.) The Prime Minister of United Earth later maintained an office in Paris at the Place. In 2155, United Earth Prime Minister Nathan Samuels chaired a meeting in Paris wherein he decided to discontinue the NX class program in favor of increased production of Daedalus class ships during the Earth-Romulan War. (ENT novel: The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wing.)

The Place was eventually chosen as the site of the Palais de la Concorde after the founding of the Federation, and Paris was serving as the Federation's capital city by the late 22nd century during the administration of Federation President Haroun al-Rashid of United Earth. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation.) In 2265, Federation News Service reporter Tim Pennington bemoaned the loss of the Paris night life while reporting from Starbase Vanguard in the Taurus Reach. (VAN novel: Harbinger.)

In later centuries, "Paris" was often used synonymously with the Federation government. In 2381, Alpha Centauri Governor George Barrile complained that Paris was illegally expanding its authority over Federation Member governments. (TNG novel: Losing the Peace.)

The Federation starships USS Paris were named for this city.

The video game The Transinium Challenge lists Jean-Luc Picard's birth place as Paris, France, Earth.

Muppet

(Redirected to France article)

From Muppet Wiki

France is a European nation famed for its cuisine, the Eiffel Tower, and a populace stereotypically marked by snooty accents and moustaches. The country donated the Statue of Liberty to the United States of America. Miss Piggy has famously affected a French accent and a Parisian sophistication. In Muppet Treasure Island, an indignant Benjamina Gunn (played by Piggy) claims her mother came all the way from France for the wedding to Captain Abraham Smollett.

  • The French language is spoken in Canada and figured in some early Sesame Street episodes and quite heavily in Sesame Park, particularly through Louis, the Francophone Otter.
