What is civlian life like in the Federation?
 
I would like to know, what is civilian life like living in the Federation of Star Trek? Mostly in the 24th century?

From what Joseph Sisko's restaurant showed us, just like today's people but in the future.

Applying to scientific advisory boards. Achieving your lifelong dream of serving on scientific advisory boards. Poetry.

It would depend on your point of view, I suppose. For some, it's the best damned utopia evar; for others, it's boring as whale shit.

Civilian life in the Federation future of the 24th century is so dull and boring, they don't make tv shows about it. Everyone has a place to live and enough to eat and enough to live comfortably. It's like you grow up and then spend the rest of your life in retirement doing anything you want, without ever working a day in your life.

As Douglas Adams said: Quite interesting in parts, but no substitute for the real thing. ;)

Have your own holodeck and do whatever you want all day long. Probably sex with celebrities. Not bad really.

Could be tiring, though.

Or holo-addiction worthy.

Even if the celebrity is Kirk or Riker?

I would imagine, Civilian life in the 24th Century within the Federation can arguably be compared to that of Vulcan ideals. Human ideas and asperations are no longer fueled by popularity and fame, or the acquisition of wealth. This allows all people to pursue courses and careers most suited to their needs, wants and abilities.
When everyone has no holds to what they can do, and since jobs do not pay and everyone benefits the same, people find gratification and enjoyment in what they do.
People still work jobs such as labor and construction. There are still doctors and lawyers, teachers, sanitation workers, engineers, politicians, drivers, artists, and all other jobs.
By this time, there would no longer by any Armies, Navies, or any type of military, besides law enforcement/police, left on Earth. No need for them. Instead there is Starfleet. Jobs in Security, Engineering, Sciences, Medical, and more. And all these jobs would be on the cutting edge of their fields. Many people would want to work in Starfleet. Many if for the very reason to add excitement in their lives for those not so complacent of life on Earth and willing to take the risk to be at the forefront of their career choice.
With everyone having the same overall goal, to help advance humanity!

Im sure there could be a lot of problems with things being this way. But with how Star Trek has portrayed and hinted that this has been accomplished, I imagine it's fairly close.

The cars fly and the buildings are insanely tall. But yeah, it seems to be the world we live in (Into Darkness even had school buses), although 24th school kids seem to be indoctrinated with bollocks about humanity having evolved into a superior form of life.

I do think that most people's jobs are in the scientific, engineering, academic, creative fields. But that doesn't mean their lives are boring. They probably party all the time in their time off. You think we have a lot of entertainment with Netflix and such, they have all that only with 400 years of media at their fingertips.
