Re: Probably the most asked Trek question

I thought the most asked question was, "Kirk or Picard?" (The answer of course is Sisko.)

Or:

Why do they go into battle wearing pajamas? They can put force fields around their ships but not their people?

Or:

Howcome so many different planets evolved humanoids? (And no, The Chase isn't really a good answer.)

Or:

Does anyone seriously believe humans would ever evolve beyond greediness?

Or:

Where did Voyager keep getting supplies and power to keep the holosuites going? And howcome nobody noticed Janeway was insane?

Or:

Why do they keep going into caves when every single time, the cave collapses? You'd think after the 20th time, they'd learn.

Oh PS, news about a new TV series (to the extent there is any) gets discussed in Future of Trek.

I can't think of a single question or comment anyone has made to me about DS9.
Maybe because no one outside this forum actually cares about it.

Re: Probably the most asked Trek question

Greediness: Far less likely in a post scarcity society, and such an economy isn't unlikely at all given certain technological developments we may even have in a few decades (common 3D printing of almost anything, nanotech, dematerialization of products, etc) not centuries. Add to this a space faring society with nearly unlimited resources. Barring catastrophe Star Trek may actually have greatly underestimated post scarcity.

I'm not sure I believe we'll reach that. Perhaps I'm too cynical about this, but there'll still be posessions doubling as status symbols. Most probably will be stuff that by definition very few can have, e.g. spacious accomodations at the Champs elysées in Paris, or smack in the center of whatever metropolis you fancy. Original works of famous artists. Hence, even in a replicator economy, there'll probably still be 'scarce' goods in that sense, and therefore, greed.
