Federation Primary System
You were raised on a fully-populated technological world that is an intrinsic part of Federation culture and politics. Earth, Rigel, Tellar Prime, Vulcan, Andoria are but a few systems considered as Primaries in the Federation. Because you were raised on one of these worlds you were blessed with most (if not all) of the opportunities that Federation society can offer.

Federation Colony System
You were raised on one of the hundreds of colony systems found throughout the Federation. Cygnia Minor, Midos V, New Paris Colonies, Vulcan Monestary Planet are just a few of the worlds listed as Federation Colonies. These worlds have both the support and the full time protection of the Federation and Star Fleet.
You were raised on a world, not even developed enough to be considered a colony, on the fringes of Federation Space. These worlds are often dangerous, sometimes harsh, and too far away to receive prompt support or protection from the Federation.
You were raised outside of the Federation on a settled world with little or no outside support or protection. Like the Frontier, life on these independant colonies is often harsh and dangerous.
