Re: Best and worst examples of diplomacy in Star Trek
The foreign policy conundrum presented in TNG's "The Wounded" is a fairly fascinating one -- a viewer today could make comparisons to the ongoing issue with Iran's alleged development of nuclear weapons. When should
a war be risked to secure from an external threat?
And of course, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
glorifies the diplomatic process.
