A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, Paul Westermeyer was heard
to say:

>Has anyone done any work on why most of the humans on the "standard" worlds
>all speak the same language? I know its convenient,  but it doesn't offer
>much in the way of realism.  If anyone has though out a reason,  please,
>let me know!:)

Yeah, it's the Universal Translator........

Oops, sorry, wrong 'men in space' universe.   :-)

Seiously though, why let it bother you ?   It's the same as to why
(using FR for a moment), the people in Faerun speak the same language
as Zakhara and Maztica etc.

Besides, we're talking flying ships in space here.  Realism is non
existent :-)

Steve.
