Everything is possible if we let it be. I believe it can happen the whole Trek universe makes sense. It might not be exactly like st but it will be similar. Our advancements in technology is showing its highly possible. The government aspect will be a different story considering we are having a hard time getting ours right well more like keeping it together. But the thought of have a similar Starfleet is pretty exciting. Like its been said Star Trek is just way more logical than Star Wars. Live long and prosper!

Sora, I'm of the belief that the U.S. shouldn't interfere in another country's affairs even if asked. If a single indivdual on either side opposes intervention, then the general welfare is being violated on the basis of forced association. For example, the U.S. is a member of the United Nations, which I oppose. And yet my tax dollars go to fund it. So I'm being placed in a position of forced association and involuntary servitude, supposedly outlawed by the 13th Amendment. The reverse of that, other countries staying out of our business, I totally concur.


Unfortunately, our involvement with the U.N. insures mutual intervention. The 17th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution represents microcosm U.N. involvement. Prior to the 17th Amendment, Senators were elected by their State's Legislatures, but the 17th Amendment permitted Senators to be elected by popular vote and subsequently receive campaign funds from outside their State, a condition not previously allowed for it would be a foreign donation. The Senator is now beholden to two competing groups, a foreign party and a domestic party. This is a clear violation of the Senator's job as his job demands domestic representation. The same applies to the U.S. government, which is representative of its citizens, not the aims of the U.N.


OtakuJo, Obama has joined the list of Imperial Presidents that date back to Lincoln, the rare exception being Grover Cleveland, who was arguably the last Federal President by Constitutional standards. "Leader" in Obama's case is a euphamism for dictator, which is why his actions have consequences for everyone world wide. A Country. foreign to the U.S., wouldn't have to worry about a Federal President's actions, because his external authority is severely limited to treaties and military retaliation - but Congress has to declare war for the latter to occur and wars aren't Constitutionally permitted to be sustained longer than a 2 year period. That's gone out the window... perhaps blasted off the planet.

I give just about anything to keep politics and religion off the Star Trek message boards. Let's leave it to 10 Forward where it belongs. Nothing turns me off more than when people use the anonymous safety of a Star Trek message board to announce and pedal their viewpoints. I'm not saying I agree or disagree with your beliefs. I just don't think this is the place for those discussions.

I've been a Star Trek fan since the very first original series bagan.  I love both the original and Next Gen.  The sad thing is when they return to earth and we see the distruction and state we earthlings are inflicting on our world.  This is a great web site I am new member.

People learn through mistakes. Hopefully by the time humanity figures things out it won't be too late to reverse the damage we've done.


Welcome to ST.com, by the way.
