Sol is the Latin word for Sun. It is often used to describe the Earths sun in cases where it is prefered. In the case of Star Trek Online it is assumed that Cryptic (game developer) wanted a better name for the major system of the United Federation of Planets than "Sun" or "The Sun System." Therefore they used the word Sol as the same word has been used in various Sci-Fi stories.
