Rigelian Central Security - Signage

Rigelian signs inside and outside of the Rigel X Trading Complex Central Security Office

The Rigelian language was a language spoken and written by the Rigelians.

It was used by the operators of the trade complex on Rigel X, and was used in signage of the Central Security offices. (ENT: "Broken Bow")

A deleted scene from this episode would have established that the language used a pronominal base.
The posters featuring the Rigelian language, seen in "Broken Bow", were previously seen on the Mokra planet in VOY: "Resistance".

Hoshi Sato could understand Rigelian, but was knocked unconscious before she could make out what a trio of Rigelian kidnappers were saying about their plot to kidnap Doctor Phlox. (ENT: "Affliction")

Established dialogueEdit

Dol'sha t'ung nev'Rleel.

"Bring him with us."

- Kidnappers, regarding Dr. Phlox. (ENT: "Affliction")
"Rigel 113 language" was referred to in the first draft script of TOS: "The Cage", in which Vina used it in a simulation of Rigel 113 (later renamed Rigel VII), while frightened by a Kalar. The scripted dialogue included the statement "Vit meon! Tekos!", meaning, "Help me! Please!" The dialogue also made it clear that Rigel 113 language included the name "Kalar", despite that name also being used (with the same meaning) in English.
