Which means to you, Starfleet is the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, the Marines, the Military Police, the NSA, the CIA, the FBI and the Coast Guard all rolled into one. Because surely a Federation of planets with a hundred different members and nearly a trillion citizens only has room for ONE organization to do anything ever.
Just one piece of actual evidence of the existence of another military organization? You should be able to come up with one in six-hundred hours of material.

Face it, in a society of a trillion people, the only time we ever see anyone do anything of a military nature it's connected with Starfleet.

Just a few quick questions: with Worf being a Klingon, wouldn't he actually want to join the Federation's military arm? Wouldn't the Klingons want to deal with the actual military arm of the Federation if they value strength? Same for the Romulans? When the Federation wants to make a show of strength, why do they always send Starfleet? When a war is about to break out why is it always Starfleet on the front-lines?

Twice, during battles with the Borg (Wolf 359, Sector 001) all we see are Starfleet ships. When the Federation decides to blockade the Romulans, it's Starfleet ships doing the blockading. When we see planetside fights, it's Starfleet.
