Is Starfleet a military?

By 24th Century Definitions - No, Maybe? Banana? Cantaloupe?

By 21st Century Definitions - Emphatically, yes.
21st century definitions imply legal statutes that the Federation does not (and probably never did) recognize. Nor would OUR definitions meaningfully override theirs, since the Trek universe bears very little resemblance to our own.

IOW: Starfleet is a military inasmuch as Jedi Knights are police officers.
