All intelligent races in the known galaxy have a native language. In order to simplify interstellar trade, the Pan-Galactic Corporation created Pan-Galactic, a language of sounds and gestures that can be spoken by almost any intelligent, speaking creature. It does not sound quite the same when spoken by members of different races, but anyone who speaks Pan-Galactic can understand a creature speaking Pan-Galactic.
Because of its usefulness, Pan-Galactic is spoken on almost every world that has contact with the Pan-Galactic Corporation or one of the four major races.
At the start of the game, all player characters speak their native language and Pan-Galactic. Learning a new language is like learning a new skill. At level 1, a character will understand about half of what anyone says in that language, and has a 50% chance to make someone else understand what he says.
