Re: What are the requirements for the joining the Federation?
Sisko said (iirc) that there can't be caste based discrimination. Not that there couldn't be castes
Perhaps there's something I'm not getting, but doesn't discrimination come with the very existence of castes?
Obviously there was discrimination in Bajor's old caste system, as we personally saw a man being EXECUTED for not following his caste!
