oh heres a curious idea? I doubt it will happen at this point but it might have.
Starfleet trys appropiating the orbs.
well some, such as the "orb of time" at least, could be interpreted as DANGEROUS is it really a GOOD idea to give that kind of power to a group of Ascetics.
at least I think thats what some in starfleet might think.
They wouldnt do so as casualy, as the Cardassians I know, but has potential.
ITs not too dissimilar to what nearly happened in insurrection.
