Very eloquent, if a bit loquacious.
And I have no quibbles with any anti-Federation POV or bias. That's one of the things I actually want to see in the continuing storyline. (Think I posted earlier about wanting to see the UFP lose some political and economic ground over its ideals)
My point is it would be in the interests of powers (bias positive, negative; UFP, Pact or not) that are thinking long-term to hold off until they can predict the behavior and attitudes of the Pact and the state/nature of the Federation after the Borg invasion and extracting as much from both the Pact and the UFP before they align with one or the other if at all.
