The degree Fahrenheit (or simply °F) was a thermometric scale named after Earth physicist Gabriel Fahrenheit.

The Fahrenheit temperature scale was designed so that the freezing point of water was 32° and the boiling point was 212° at 1 Earth atm.

Sensors aboard 23rd century Federation starships could be calibrated to read in degrees Fahrenheit. However, like the mile, this antiquated means of measurement was used only on rare occasions. For instance, the body function panels in sickbay measured a patient's body temperature in both Celsius and Fahrenheit. (Star Trek: The Original Series)
