Which still begs the question: what kind of organization IS Starfleet that two of its most prominent officers can believe that it isn't a military organization?
Starfleet is the military. Why else would Picard think his officers needed combat training against the Borg if he wasn't expecting to fight the Borg? Where was the Federation's military during the invasions of Sector 001?


This is not.

That is the same bridge where they fight the Borg and are sent by Starfleet to confront the Romulans and the Cardassians on multiple occasions.
