Re: The Typhon Pact

The Federation post-Destiny is hardly post-scarcity. Millions of people are homeless and planetary societies do not have enough to feed all the refugees. Industrial food replicators are few and far between and there wouldn't be enough agriculture to feed them all anyway. Although the Federation still has advanced starship technology; on a food scale, they are proportionately back to the post-WW3 era - scarcity is the watchword for those not on starships or starbases.
