Re: Starfleet is the U.S. Coast Guard

Picard fancies himself an explorer instead of a soldier and therefore doesn't consider Starfleet to be a military in his personal opinion.

Though it gets even stupider in the Abramsverse. Specifically, in Trek XI Pike describes Starfleet as a "humanitarian peacekeeping force" which sounds like a military to me. Only, apparently it isn't since in STID Admiral Marcus's evil agenda was to militarize Starfleet.
