*In the [[Star Trek]], the [[United Federation of Planets]] has abolished currency, although other governments such as the [[Klingon Empire]] still issue currencies. An analog to the Gold Standard is used by the [[Ferengi]] -- and honored by others powers -- based around "gold-pressed [[latinum]]."  Due to energy shortages on-board the [[USS Voyager]] a system of exchange referred to as replicator rations is created to limit the over use of the ships strained resources.

*In [[Star Wars]], the standard unit of currency is the "credit".  The earliest mention of credits was Qui-Gon Jinn's failed attempt to purchase a [[hyperdrive]] with "Republic Daktaris"; these "Republic credits" were not valued on [[Tatooine]] at the time.  Presumably these credits are issued and backed by the [[Galactic Republic]] and, later, the [[Galactic Empire]].
