Re: Animated nuTrek concept art
In a writing sense, the Federation pretty much exists to justify the existence of Starfleet, which exists solely to legitimize the Enterprise
and her crew and to give their mission purpose. It's supposed
to be in the background. I find that satisfying enough.
STAR TREK: 1964-1965½, 1966-1969, Jan. 21-23 1972, 1979-2001, 2003-2005, 2009-?
