The Federation is what appears to be a utopian future version of the United Nations. However, there were several instances where Kirk blatantly disregarded an order from the Federation because it was downright harmful. And when you think about it, an intergalactic group of fascists trying to collect taxes from planets they “own” would definitely be interested in using a “service” like the Starfleet to travel to unexplored planets and gentrify, colonize, and rob the living crap out of aliens. Why else would they be embarking on a “five year mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no man has gone before“? For science? For peace? Or for power?

In real life, we can assume most intelligent species would eventually at least become aware of the possibility of something like a Prime Directive, just from a game theory/logical tactical standpoint, so we can assume this would also be true for the ST universe.

However, we know specifics about this point from ENT, since the Prime Directive as an order doesn't exist at that point in time, although the Vulcans do have a nebulous policy of general non-interference (of any kind.) Archer and Phlox actually more or less come up with the idea of a prime directive and treat it as a novel concept in "Dear Doctor," but obviously it wouldn't be implemented as an actual order until later, most likely after the formation of the Federation.

It seems like it is all, maybe appropriately, nebulous. The Vulcans were kinda "Prime Directivish," when they came across Cochran. They knew Earth was inhabited by what? The 1940s? Certainly knew about WWIII. So, they were probably all, "Ignore anyone who isn't warping around the local neighborhood." Which is kinda the dickish way Vulcan's would justify shit. They are pretty fucking snobby in ENT, so I imagine their lack of contact with non-warp cultures is more of a "we don't go slumming," policy than a "we don't want to fuck up your culture policy. Then, the Federation starts to happen and of course the Human version is based on "don't fuck up other cultures with your spaceman shit," so you get the Prime Directive which is kinda snobby about the warp drive thing, but also based on the idea that dropping matter/antimatter tech on someone who just discovered bronze is probably gonna fuck some shit up.

Yeah it's basically a combination of the human idea of not wanting to mess shit up, and the Vulcan idea of just not wanting to fuck with them at all. And of course it had to be something that everyone could agree on when the Federation was founded so that's a middle ground that has a practical purpose for everyone and a moral purpose that the humans can cling to (and skate around).

Is it canon they tax these civilizations? Because i'm pretty sure federation had evolved ''beyond material needs'' having replicators and all that. I'm quite sure that the feds are only really interested in dilithium crystals.

Also federation admission generally includes protection and benefit of socio economic civilization, although, many times regulations state a course of action that disregards some very human instincts in different situations.

also prime directive is something starship captains seem to get a lot of trouble with. lol. Why not interfere? If you can improve the civilization.

Of course, it has certain logic to it.

>>Is it canon they tax these civilizations?
No, absolutely not, OP just stated that to give credence to their suggestion that the UFP was some kind of corrupt UN in space. The UFP is a post-scarcity moneyless society in which all individuals contribute on a voluntary basis 'for the betterment of society and themselves.' The closest thing that's ever been mentioned to a tax on Federation worlds is in 'The Cloud Minders' where it is mentioned that the inhabitants of the planet, as members of the Federation, have an obligation to provide a mineral because it is desperately needed on another Federation world. So certainly the Federation lives under a policy of 'you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours' but not in a direct sense of 'you give us X many quatloos and we give you Y amount of protection' but more abstract general cooperation.

>> Why not interfere? If you can improve the civilization.
Because every time a more advanced civilization interferes with a more primitive one, regardless of intentions, the outcome is invariably disaster. In the old lore, neither the Klingons nor Romulans developed warp drive on their own but stole it in various ways, which is used to explain why they are still in the primitive war-like stage of interstellar relations while being advanced enough for space travel (this has since been modified.) There are tons of other examples, but it's widely seen as genuinely true simply because it's true in the real world; for example, in the discovery of the New World, or in the case of cargo cults and such; even with the best intentions, a more technologically advanced society fundamentally changes a more primitive one, even by the mere awareness of its existence.

This is so distabilizing to the social order of the more primitive society that it usually leads to the end of their existence in one way or another -- but also could theoretically lead to the end of the more advanced party too, as the consequences of the interaction of technology and culture are inherently unforseeable.
Thus, in short, the prime directive exists (and captain's get into trouble with it a lot) because it is the main problem w…

I thought the vaporizing of pedos was a little bit heavy handed for a Star Trek. Too bad they made it in 1996 and didnt need Roddenberry to approve it. Also the episode where a transporter replication error turns Serraphim Monica into a black version of her self was a very sensitive portrayal of race issues in the 2370s

I like the computer game where Worf travels to a nuclear wasteland and gets really old and his hair falls out but he stays ripped and carries a minigun around and even founds a town. But somehow he's also the big bad guy but he wears a massive armoured suit so you'd never know. So then after that he builds a village of old worn out klingons in a ski ranch.

The 'actual continuations of originals with fans working on them' were all shut down by CBS's fan-film order, which they made to basically clear the playing field for DSC (really because they wanted a piece of that sweet Axanar kickstarter money.)

In J.J. Abrams’ Into Darkness(Abrams was also a Scientology fan once upon a time), the crew of the Enterprise go on a mission to prevent the planet Nibiru’s catastrophic volcano from erupting and wiping out all of the living things on the planet. The primitive inhabitants of Nibiru witness this rescue and record the event via ancient markings. Kirk is reprimanded for exposing the still-developingplanet to foreign technology and effectively flipping their world upside down.
Much of Scientology’s dogma comes from a mythos similar to this. Also, many Scientologists believe that an apocalyptic event similar to Nibiru’s will happen to us in this century. That’s quite a similarity, and judging by Abrams’ past hobbies, it very well could have been intentional.

I mean this is a good argument and it can explain the pressure being withstood, but how do they actually get the Δv needed to accelerate out of a body of water without using the impulse engines, since they LIFT out of the water. The idea is it's all thrusters.. which in space might be able to be effective, but which would have to be mightily powerful and numerous in order to lift a ship that massive.

But the integrity fields, that's a damn good point. You're alright. I liek you.

Yeah I like chipotle kinda, like I can see the potential in the character, the writers just fucked him up so bad.. he became a sycophant to Janeway right away instead of having a divide between Starfleet and Maquis until they learned to work together.. Voyager seemed to have wanted to do that, but instead they chickened out. Because Chipotle chickened out.

And another thing he used the Ahkoonah like once or twice.. that shit would have been a great dues ex machine with him seeing shit in his visions that helps the crew along it's journey. They should have made him and Janeway a couple just straight up. Fucking in the ready room and all that. Janeway would forget all about her dog and that rando mark guy.

Chipotle would have been better if played as a more mystical character and also it would have been nice to have chosen a single or two tribes (like one from each parent) to say that he hailed from instead of just blanket categorizing an entire fucking continent.. I mean there were a lot of different cultures in the Americas, I if they would said oh hey he's part Hopi, he could be all

I mean every Star Trek and Star Wars book I have ever read has been garbage, except Tarkin since he's more badass than Vader but that's a topic for another thread.

Basically the core point here is that Star Trek seems to be engaged in the same greedy merchandising that Star Wars is where the show is basically a conduit to sell stuff.

Furthermore this marketing strategy seems to be well planned in advance.

To add to this, if you want to maybe some of the evolution of this show, read the book. Novelizations tend to have deadlines several months ahead of a release date so that they have time to publish and distribute the book so that it can hit the streets when the movie/show premieres. In the Back to the Future novelization Doc Brown is darker, meaner character than what we see in the film. Alien3's novelization had much of what later appeared in the Assembly Cut. The Abyss had the original ending plus scenes that had been cut; the author bitched in later interviews about the film not matching the book.

The point is that the book may contain more of Fuller's work so people can see how the show could have looked, or characters that were dropped or how the current ones would have been different. It depends on the book's deadline.

Do you expect Star Trek as a franchise to be run on some kinda post-scarcity egalitarian communalism in order to qualify as being authentic? Think about it, Trek can't decide to have it's own fucking economic system man, it's just a TV show.
Actually, if you want to look at it in a crazy way, by over the decades inspiring or popularizing so many high tech concepts, including post-scarcity manufacturing and moneyless society, you could argue that ST and sci-fi in general are what created the public belief in these developments' inevitability and thus are drawing them into reality...so they've more than done their part

Kelvin Trek is pissing me off by Jack Crusher - Mon, 30 Oct 2017 07:20:27 EST ID:UJv1sNL4 No.62227 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

This makes me feel so fucking petty. But it's something that is legitimately fucking annoying me with Kelvin timeline Star Trek. Kelvin timeline is the one they are going to be using for the foreseeable future, that's annoying, but it's understandable, it's popular among the normie crowd, which is where all of the money is. What's really fucking me off royal is the fact that they aren't using ANY of the Star Trek races. Since 2009, the only canon Star Trek races to make any appearance in any movie or TV are:


Is there some kind of legal problems like with Prometheus and the Alien franchise? Out of the hundreds of races that Star Trek has to offer, why have they only used 4? They keep on making up races, I mean, most of the newcomers have been brand new aliens. Beyond was a good film, but pissed me off with every shot of Yorktown station, because it was packed full of aliens... But none of the canon aliens, just a bunch of people walking around with make-up putty smeared across their faces without rhyme or reason. Discovery keeps on mentioning the Andorians,the Denobulans, the Tellarites, even a mention to the fucking Benzite, but then they never show up. Hell, the Efrozians and Grazerites had members of their species as Presidents of the Federation, so they have to be big players? So, why are they always conveniently offscreen?

Am I the only person getting fucked off about this?

That's what I've heard. The guys ad midnight's edge went into detail about the whole rights thing between Paramount, CBS and shit in one of their episodes.I believe it's this one: https://youtu.be/57LmReEymG0

OK, just WTF is up with the weird gap in Discovery's saucer section?

Whomever designed this ship must have been high on space weed, because that is just some wasted space there. Plus, you have only 4 access points to like 1/5th of the ship. I know that Trek canon makes for some boring Federation vehicles (nacelles, and a saucer section can only go so far,) but this seems weird and silly.

I can't show a picture of it because the bridge lighting on this show is shit, but it's godly. Grace Jones ain't got shit on this hair.

Our queen would be so proud.
It's like when you can hear the ripples of David Bowie's influence all over the musical landscape.
That hairdo is one of her ripples. She shaped the timeline that led to that glorious do. Without her influence it would not be the same.
