I find it interesting that despite the Federations' oft-expressed desire for inter-galactic peace and cooperation,almost everyone is wondering just when this new political alliance(the Typhon pact) will open hostilities.

Perhaps the almost constant state of siege/war that has prevailed in Trek,both onscreen and in Treklit,has led to a certain mindset.
Those of a more psycho-sociological mind might say that this is reflective of our present day reality.
Indeed. I'm half-wondering if the Federation, acting out of fear and xenophobia, might not itself provoke the very conflict it so fears.
Democratic socialism is the hope of human freedom.
