Re: TF: Peaceable Kingdoms by Dayton Ward Review Thread (Spoilers!)
I completely agree. The concept itself is solid. I think all three conspiracies might have been a little too top heavy, but focusing on one or two of them and really giving them meat would have made for an excellent series.
They are somewhat justified. I don't think their methods were right at all, but the idea that Starfleet might be a bit naive when dealing with other foreign powers? That's a compelling argument.
The same with Cardassian concerns about federation dogma taking over. Its ultimately a good thing, of course, but they're justified in their fears. I can't help but remember Eddington's comparison of the Federation to the borg.
The villains are wrong and the things they do are bad- but their motivations are coming from somewhere. Making them mustache twirling villains just feels like we missed out on some great moral dilemmas and characters.
