Re: Scotty and his military comment
strange for a "military" ship to look like a carnival cruise ship in space packed full of 5 star rooms and science labs and families and dolphins
I know I already dissected this post, but something else occurred to me. You claim the presence of dolphins aboard the Enterprise D as proof that Starfleet's not military. And yet the first time in which a dolphin presence was mentioned on screen (as "cetacean ops") was in Yesterday's Enterprise, in an alternate timeline where the Enterprise was intentionally depicted as a warship.
