Re: The Federation / Klingon Alliance

I doubt you'd find any support for the argument, either in court or in public, that saying "Pay or I'll break your kneecaps" is not forcing...

Fox no doubt would have many arrows in his quiver; he need not coerce with military force or violence alone. But negotiation often equals blackmail, and "forcing" and "use of force" should be valid terms for describing the process.
