Re: Question

You must also take into account that Starfleet is not strictly military. They serve a lot of other functions too, and I would think that a bigger fraction of the general population is in Starfleet than is in a modern military.

Look at how many uniformed people you see in San Francisco in TMP or that awful Harry Kim episode. It seems like a lot, even considering that it's where Starfleet headquarters is.
