They don't have to be as militaristic as modern Western societies, they just need the level of militarism that the TOS Federation's Starfleet had.
THIS. I'm tired of the Federation learning of a threat and then doing nothing until it's too late. You know things are bad when the guys who created a bioweapon to genocide an entire species in charge of an interstellar empire are the most competent, logical, and clearminded people working for the good guys.
That's the first time I heard anybody refer to the criminals from Section 31 as competent, logical and clear-minded.
Really? There are actually a lot of jingoistic, proto-fascist types on the TrekBBS who attribute all sorts of virtues to Section 31.
