Arabic was a language used on Earth in the Middle East and North Africa by Arabs.

Captain Kathryn Janeway, while being quizzed by Admiral Patterson noted that the original Arabic name for Gamma Orionis was "Bellatrix". (VOY: "Relativity")


Janeway refers to Bellatrix as the original Arabic name for Gamma Orionis, however, the name "Bellatrix" is actually Latin in origin and means "Amazon". The real Arabic name for the star was al Najid, "the conqueror.". Regardless, numerous other real stars mentioned in Star Trek were called by their Arabic names, including for example Aldebaran, Betelgeuse, Deneb, Rigel and many others. Other terms of Arabic origin that were mentioned include Allah, Fakir, Jihad and Erg.
