Re: Does the Federation still exist in the 31+th century?

Having served as a receptionist and staff assistant myself, I'm curious about what's so "stupid" about the idea. Or, for that matter, how a computer could be expected to keep an office running while the principals are preoccupied.

Having assistants is not a sign of a repressive economy or ideology. Disrespecting assistants and not providing good compensation for their services is a sign of a repressive economy or ideology.
