Trying to make a list of races and factions the Federation have came into conflict with cause of their actions.

Major Wars

>Klingons

>Cardassians

>Dominion

Minor Wars

>Talarian

>Tzenkethi

>Sheliak

Skirmishes

>Gorn

>Tholians

>Ferengi

Rebellions

>Maquis

And that's just for starters, there's a few more I assure you and I haven't even added the stuff from the "EU" or when it was just Earth which is why the Romulans aren't on the list.

Humans are pretty spread out, keeping them dependent on the government (or whoever runs the replicators) would be a handy way of keeping the population under control.

If people had money, they could negociate some sort of exchange with aliens or whoever and just buy whatever they want instead of getting what the Federation thinks they need.

Indeed. Trading, even if just for minor luxuries, with un-allied aliens could potentially blow a hole in the whole "we're number one, everyone else is Space Hitler" narrative the Federation has going on.

Once they've tried it, Federation citizens might be too redpilled to go back and end up in the Syndicate by default (cause they're conditioned to submit to a larger authority)

Supposedly that was what the whole Maquis rebellion was about. Maquis had to trade with others to survive as Feds pretty much abandoned their colonies, yet Feds told them they had to do shit their way or else.

The whole Maquis arc felt like it would have resulted in a Federation Civil War if it continued.

In fact the whole feeling of Post-Nemesis if there was a show felt like that was what would happen

Unity is a false god. The best a group should strive for is cooperation under certain guidelines or mutually agreed upon borders and leaving each other alone.

You can see this in the real world. We all have friends at home and at work. Invite them all together into a neutral location for a party. Some will hit it off, some will pretend to like each other to keep you happy, and some will just make sure they're on opposite ends of the rooms because they make each others' fists itch. And if there's enough booze, someone will end up taking a poke at someone else. That's the Federation: the universe's worst party.

During the Maquis story arc in TNG and the whole approach of the admiralty towards the Bajor situation on DS9 mad me realize how out of touch with reality Starfleet Command (and by extension the Federation) really were.

Many times admirals would make demands of Sisko, Picard, and other captains to just "make it happen" when it came to stopping the maquis or bringing bajor closer to being admitted to the Federation, all while doing everything possible to hand Bajor back to the cardassians due to their inability/unwillingness to act, and over-reliance on the Federation-Cardassian treaty.

That treaty also highlights how naive and clueless the Federation really was, to trust the Cardassians to not arm their worlds in the DMZ after the treaty, and ever after both Picard and Sisko uncover proof that the Cardassians are committing attrocities against the Federation colonies in the DMZ, the Federation still did nothing.

Sisko put it best then he described Earth as a paradise, basically stating that it's hard to see reality when you look out your window and see paradise. That is the biggest problem with the Federation and Starfleet Command, I think, making decisions from paradise, without looking at the reality of other worlds.

To me it feels like the Federation is saying to all non-federation worlds and saying "let them eat cake".

I don't think these bugs were ever meant to be the borg. Conspiracy is S1E25, but the plot of the following episode would have been about borg origins. S1E26 wikipedia's entry describes the original intent for the episode to be a two-parter introducing an insectoid version of the borg, but the writer's strike left the idea hanging.

I think a working theory as to how it all really works is that earth is a 'paradise' that is fairly oppressive and controlled, and that its good living is subsidized by the outlying worlds and resources. Colonization serves as a valve to expel malcontents or people who would begin to revolt against the current order. I suspect many people are simply exiled from earth, though it probably isn't called this. There's no reason otherwise why the people in Tasha Yar's home planet - which is a hell hole - would not pack up and go back to earth, unless they couldn't.

This is probably why Picard never made admiral - instead he became an ambassador, a person to represent the federation. He's a true believer and a principled man, and such a man would be dangerous in Star Fleet because if enacted the stated policies would be shown to be ineffective. Janeway was promoted over him, despite being irrational, because she has no underlying principles and so she will not attempt to use the federation's ideology in anything important. Most of the admirals are not idealists. They are either evil, antagonistic, or pragmatists.

Acceptable case for TNG, but DS9 and Voy increasingly relied on CGI, so why didn't either series follow up? You don't need to see a lot of the bugs anyways since they parasitically inhabit various host species they use to communicate.

Maybe it was a little too Starship Troopers or too much blackpill. Here's this species which can go largely unnoticed and infect all the top levels of gov't of every faction in the galaxy. Oy vey, dey hew-manz might mistake this for a commentary on the ZOG, shut it down.

Oh please. The founders claim everything they see is Dominion territory. Or do you seriously think that it would have taken the Dominion a year to notice several fleets appearing in their back yard? Dialogue in season 2 suggest that the Dominion was in the midst of expanding their territory to the section of the quadrant the wormhole occupied. And how do they tell the Alpha Quadrant forces to piss off? By slaughtering entire colonies just to prove a point. And even then the primary mission of the Defiant was to seek out the founders seek a diplomatic solution. And how do the founders react? By capturing them and running simulations on the best way to invade their home.

Not to mention that the founders manipulated the Klingons to attack Cardassia and planted a bomb on Earth long before an open state of war was declared.

And in hindsight, they made the right choice. There is no negotiating with a bunch of self-proclaimed deities who think the rest of the galaxy is oppressing them with their existence and needs to be enslaved for their own good.

I don't believe for a second that the Federation is the perfect utopia some writers insist it is, but the only mistake they made in the Dominion War was allowing the Dominion a foothold in the Alpha Quadrant in the first place. They should have mined the wormhole the second the founders tried to blow up the solar system.

If the Dominion was only just expanding into the area around the wormhole and not already in control of it, why did EVERYONE THEY MET TALK ABOUT THE DOMINION AS IF THEY WHERE ALREADY RUNNING THE PLACE?

How did that one alien who wanted to be hunted seem so suspiciously like a blueprint for the latter Jem'Hadar if the place it came from wasn't within the boarders of the Dominion?

Everything pointed towards the wormhole having opened up in an otherwise quiet and unassuming backwater area of the dominion and the dominion took its time infiltrating and investigating the alpha powers before realising that war would be inevitable due to the federations expansionist attitude and their aggressive program of cultural subversion of anything that isn't feddie.

It was unavoidable that the feddies would try to start a civil uprising within the Dominion if left unchecked, just like they did with the Klingons and the Romulans. And even if you ignore this thread, several nations from beyond the wormhole attempted to genocide the entire ruling caste of the Dominion before they invaded. And on top of that, the klingons where itching for another war and would have started one with the Dominion before too long.

The entire alpha/beta quadrant where on a collision course with the Dominion, the Dominion just happened to throw the first punch and where better at turning their enemies on each other in the start of the war.

If the Dominion controlled the area around the wormhole, how come every species the Federation encountered during the first two years(with the possible exception to the Tosk and the people who hunt him) weren't part of the Dominion? How come the refugees fleeing from the Dominion went in that direction? How come the Ferengi had to actively seek out the Dominion when trying to establish trade between the quadrants? The most evidence for the wormhole to be in Dominion territory is a galaxy spanning hunt for the Tosk. Not a very strong case. Hell, the Jem'Hadar never even said that the wormhole was in their territory. All they said was that coming through it was "violation enough". If they had drawn a line on a map, I doubt the Federation wouldn't have respected that. We're talking about a society that were willing to leave their own colonists to die rather than violate a peace treaty that the other side was laughing at.

And if their actions was purely self-defensive, why didn't they go after the only the Romulans and Cardassians? After decimating the Obsidian Order and Tal Shiar, the founders declare they will be going after the Klingons and Federation. Why? They weren't involved in the genocide plans. And Section 31's plans weren't discovered by anyone until long after the war had begun. In fact, the founders were only infected after they had infiltrated the Klingons, planted a bomb on Earth and took over the Defiant to start a war between the Federation and Tzenkethi. Everything points to the founders being paranoid of solids and insisting they're the victims despite ruling the quadrant with an iron fist. All while claiming their boot on the neck of solids were for their own good, of course.

In empty space that didn't have any populations in it? Why not? Federation doesn't have eyes and ears for every planet in their territory.

>Dialogue in season 2 suggest that the Dominion was in the midst of expanding their territory to the section of the quadrant the wormhole occupied.

The Federation didn't even check if the territory was part of someone's empire, they just started settling it immediately. If they had check they'd have found out that the area was already claimed by the Dominion.

>And how do they tell the Alpha Quadrant forces to piss off? By slaughtering entire colonies just to prove a point.

Federation doesn't have a problem letting alien powers impose brutish martial law in their own territories. What's different about allowing the Dominion to do so? The Federation shouldn't have let people blindly rush into the Gamma without exploring it first with an actual exploration program to determine if the territory was owned or not.

>And even then the primary mission of the Defiant was to seek out the founders seek a diplomatic solution.

Would you negotiate with people who had been swarming into your space without caring about who was already there?

>And how do the founders react? By capturing them and running simulations on the best way to invade their home.

What else would you do to invaders? Dominion culture is not on trial, they're allow to have contingency plans and gather intelligence just as much as the Federation is and does.

>Not to mention that the founders manipulated the Klingons to attack Cardassia

There's no evidence of that. Gowron was the one who decided to attack Cardassia based off Cardassia having a civil war, there's no evidence that the Martok changling was involved at all. And presuming that he was, the Cardassian's just tried to genocide the leaders of the Dominion. And act of war is an act of war.

>and planted a bomb on Earth long before an open state of war was declared.

The Federation had spent several years building up for war, and yes, Dax had declared war on them by stating the Federation would keep coming no matter what. And further more there was no actual evidence that the changling even planted that bomb, only the 'evidence' of a man who was conspiring to launch and military coup detat who might've forged it for all we know.

>There is no negotiating with a bunch of self-proclaimed deities who think the rest of the galaxy is oppressing them with their existence and needs to be enslaved for their own good.

What was there to negotiate? Stay out of our territory. Federation respects that very same wish from everyone in their own quadrant, why not those in the Gamma? Tell me, if the Romulan's started occupying and colonizing Federation worlds would it not have been seen as an act of war? If the Klingon's started building within the Romulan Empire would they not have been at war immediately?

The Federation provoked The Dominion into the war, their aggressive occupying against The Dominion made war the only solution to the Federation warmongering and the Alpha Quadrants collective invasions.

But I don't see them as responsible for the Dominion War. Remember, the leaders of the Dominion are convinced that all other intelligent life is beneath them it's their duty to bring "order" to the galaxy.

> the leaders of the Dominion are convinced that all other intelligent life is beneath them it's their duty to bring "order" to the galaxy.

No, their goal is to pacify or control all solids because most of them want to genocide the Changelings. A belief backed up by Cardassians, Romulans and Feddies all trying to genocide them on the sly, why the likes of the Klingons merely try to do so openly through war.

And don't go trying to play the feddies attempt at genociding them off as an act of war. Section 31 clearly had been working for years on that virus, so they must have started work on it long before the war started.

One of the flaws of your logic is that you seem to expect the Dominion to work like a normal state, with citizens, colonies, trade, taxes and the like. They don't.

The people living under its rule aren't necessarily its citizens in the way feddies or klingons are. They don't build many colonies either. For the most part, the people living on the planets in the dominion get to run their own show. There are limits imposed on trade, ships, colonizing and foreign relations, but otherwise, they can do whatever the fuck they want so long as they don't make trouble. Hence, you only really get to see the Jem'Hadar once shit has gone tits up.

Thus, upon entering the dominion, you won't be challenged by Jem'Hadar ships immediately, nor will you likely meet anyone who even represents or considers themselves part of the dominion. Just various isolated backwaters with no real power or much interest in outside affairs (since such interest would draw the Jem'Hadar's interest), and it could be quite hard to actually get ahold of anyone who has real connections to the Dominion. This is magnified if the Dominion is deliberately giving you the silent treatment while changelings infiltrate your society and try to determine if you are a threat.

Hence, for a long time, the federation could not find any dominion officials while mucking about in dominion space. This does not mean the feddies and everyone else coming through the wormhole weren't violating Dominion territory, riling up the locals ideas of independence and space travel for themselves, colonizing dominion worlds and otherwise being bad interstellar neighbours.

And when you look at the alpha quardrant powers from the Dominions standpoint, do you really think any of them would even want to be peaceful neighbours?

The Cardies and the Rommies launched a sneak attack to wipe out the dominions rulers and destabilize the entire area, most likely to grab territory and resources.

The klingons are always looking for new wars. It would only be a matter of time before klingon explorers and settlers in the dominion territory started one if allowed to explore/settle the place.

Feddies are constantly trying to subvert everything they meet and are incredibly bad respecting others boarders. Jadzia even told them that the feddies would keep comming no matter what.

The Ferengies where being acting like spacejews, pissing off locals and ignoring Dominion trade laws.

Considering this, the dominion war wasn't really a question of if it would start, merely a question of when.

Oh please. If it really was their territory, which I very much doubt, they should make it clear before they start slaughtering people settling uninhabited planets.

Unprovoked slaughtering of civilians was the first shot, not a low-ranking officer engaging in a pissing match with a soldier who just bragged about the slaughtering of said civilians.

The issue with the Federation is one of pure Hypocrisy. They insist that humanity has evolved, that the warrior, primal instinct of combat is dead and buried, but the truth is very much the opposite. The reason the federation continues to survive is that while Humanity keeps it's martial impulses under tight control, when someone does challenge them, they have no issue letting that warrior instinct out, all while denying it exists and decrying the very violence that sustains them.

You see this in the terminology used. Back in Kirk's days, a ship like the Enterprise was called a 'Heavy Cruiser'. There was no illusion there, it was a ship for both exploration and for combat as required. By the time we reach Picards era though, the Federation would never call a ship a 'Heavy Cruiser'. The delusion is fully set. We aren't soldiers. This isn't a military. Honest.

Their denial of being warlike, while the fact they ARE so good at the warfare that sustains them, is 100% hypocrisy. And any society that dares embrace such a deep level of hypocrisy is corrupt by default.

Then they left Earth 200 years ago in order to preserve their cultural identity, and it was not until twenty years ago when they finally found a planet to settle. Admiral says she is aware and raised objections unsuccessfully. She says those people were originally warned about their settlement and agreed to the risk. Ultimately, it is a reasonable price to pay for peace.

It sounds like they were warned before they really settled down roots but said fuck it.

Maybe. you could still be right due to that vagueness. 20 years settled ago the admiral objected maybe back then due to ongoing conflict with the cardies?

There are numerous examples where Humans are seen as automatic vassals of the Federation.

They forcibly migrated an entire group of people they didn't even know had a colony to placate the Sheliak. And with the whole Maquis secession issue, it's pretty clear they consider any Humans to be Federation citizens.

Yes, but is Turkana one of them? No, they're not. They are explicitly non-aligned.

>They forcibly migrated an entire group of people they didn't even know had a colony to placate the Sheliak.

That planet was colonized by Federation citizens hence why the Federation has any level of control control over them.

>This is totally wrong, faggot. The colony fell apart in 2350. You're saying the Federation didn't exist in the 24th century?

No, I'm saying they left before the Federation was a thing. They fled earth after WW3 in the 2000s and settled it. They have never been part of the Federation (it was settled in 2297, however the people traveled there in sub-warp speed ships and left Earth before the Federation was founded.) They had independence well before the Federation was a thing because they were independent from everyone and everything when they left. They didn't find out about the Federation until the 24th century.

This is flatly wrong. Turkhana IV was a Federation world until the government collapsed, and the Coalition and Alliance declared their independence from the Federation, then severed all contact.

This claim they were their own colony before the federation is total bullshit.

This has never been how Paramount determines canon. Any novelization or game is non-canon. Only television or movies are canonical. Further, dialogue always trumps visuals.

Star Trek novels and games contradict each other all the time, and rather than try to organize it like SW used to into 'rings' of canon they just declare the EU shit non-canon. This is why Memory Beta exists. You're calling people fuckclowns for not following your own headcanon.

It's overall unclear when a lot of these colonies were launched from Earth.

We know that the SS Botany Bay was launched sometime after the Eugenics Wars in the late 20th Century.

Star Trek's timeline between World War II and the mid-21st Century is overall very vague and weird. We don't know when the Eugenics Wars started, if humanity sent nuclear engined interplanetary vessels out in the late 20th century, then that would conflict with a lot of the established timeline.

According to The Motion Picture, ENT and even the Kelvin Timeline (J.J. Verse, since everything prior to the events of the 2009 film's start is unaltered), things like the Space Shuttle Enterprise actually flew in space and was a working Space Shuttle. If things like the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle are canon in Star Trek, then when is the Eugenics Wars supposed to take place?

Did Star Trek universe earth actually colonise plants and the moon with the technology of the time? According to the VOY episode, "One Small Step", in 2032, Earth was sending the first manned missions to Mars, but this still puts in a lot of weird questions about the politics of Earth which leads to World War III.

The amount of weird stuff in Star Trek's pre-warp Earth timeline is often so vague, we have no clue as to what the actual course of events were. All we have confirmed is that the Eugenics Wars happened and that somehow the SS Botany Bay was sent out of the solar system before humanity had even gone to Mars. That and that World War III was a nuclear exchange which lead to a nuclear winter and then a bloody war, between military units which no longer kept their allegiance to their country of origin. That and Colonel Green being one of the most evil people in Earth's history, along with Ghengis Khan and Adolf Hitler.

The only established things we have, are that Zefram Cochrane did his warp flight in 2063, First Contact occured with the Vulcans, United Earth was established at a conference in San Francisco, the location the peace treaty ending World War III was signed, and that Starfleet and other such organisations for establishing a presence in space were formed afterwards.

Theoretically. We do see one such colony in TNG, those Irish farmers, if I remember correctly, but since Star Trek has never properly established pre-First Contact timelines with any great certainty, it can be up to anyone's guess what and how many human colonies exist. In ENT, there was that failed colony, Terra Nova, but since we've only seen about 2 or 3 non-Federation human colonies in the entirety of Star Trek (with huge amounts of debate over the "second Earth" places seen in TOS), we do not know a definitive answer, and we probably won't considering the direction Star Trek has gone in since the cancellation of ENT.
