>"In the season 5 episode "in the cards" Jake Sisko says that humans have long before evolved higher into not using latinum / money (something like that). Is that true??

So why does Captain Sisko ask how hes fathers restaurant is going and why worry about costumers and why study at starfleet academy or work extra long shifts and so on, if you don't get paid in some way?

Who would, volunetarely without compensation be away from family for ten years for example?

Or what do O'brien and the doctor pay for their holosuite adventure with? Trading favours with Quark? "

>(Its almost on topic right ^^)

>


They have said in other settings that the Federation or at least humans don't use money.  I assume that means they don't use money for ordinary things like housing, food, medical care, and education, and they have some sort of credits that can be used to trade for nonessentials.


Quark uses latinum, and I assume the humans on the station have some way of getting at least some latinum so they can pay for drinks, gamble, or use the holosuite.
