Re: They teach Latin at Starfleet Academy?

The Romans actually had better cooking and sanitation than a lot of medieval-era cultures. Their problems were overcrowding, lead contamination in the pipes, and living too close to marshland where stagnant water helped the mosquito population along, and they in turn spread disease among the humans.

None of that is any reason not to learn Latin.
