Civilian is a ancient term for a non-military person or activity. It implies a clear distinction between the two categories, which is more useful and easily observed in theory than in space. As Captain Liobar once observed, "When you're busy dodging Hellhounds, the difference between civilian and military doesn't seem to matter as much."

As far as the Federation is concerned, civilian seems to mean "a cheaper, low-performance version of military grade hardware (e.g., Civilian Radar Jammer) that we are willing to let you buy without a license."
