Re: Did we ever see anyone vote in the Federation?
But Britain still has a throne -- and a monarch sitting on it -- but no longer has an empire. So the same could go for the Andorians.
True. But on the other hand, Andor might be an empire only in the same sense that Britain is a kingdom -- a ceremonial sense. It might just be an empire in name rather than actuality.
