Re: Difference Between Earth Starfleet and the UESPA?

On the other, other hand, the fact that Kirk & Company can have a "Vulcan exile" in the first place, that they have to volunteer to return to Earth rather than simply being arrested and/or extradited, and that Sarek is Ambassador to the Federation (rather than, say, a member of the Galactic Senate ) implies that Vulcan is a sovereign state in this situation, which can harbour fugitives if it so chooses.
Indeed. In the modern-day European Union, all of the member-states have Permanent Representations which are all headed up by ambassadors.
