I don't have time for much today. Taking a break for a moment from the dreaded thing called Real Life, which I have a bad case of. But only for a moment. This stood out to me the other day, and I want to ask about it before I forget, because I probably will. Okay. You've got me listening on the rest of it. But this is the part I'm wondering about. If Spock was successful in getting the Terran Empire to change to the point where the Klingons, Cardassians, and Bajorans overtook them... then how can there still be a Terran Empire in, say, 2318? You'd think the Terran Empire ~50 years after "Mirror, Mirror" (TOS) and ~50 years before "Crossover" (DS9), would have already fallen. Unless it broke up into different pieces first and Emperor Georgiou was just a leader of a particular faction.
