Hello, I'm new to this site, but I have had a burning question for some time now. I was wondering, does anyone know how people in the star trek universe find out about current events? I'm not talking about starfleet officers and alien officials, mean like regular, not-constantly-being-shot-at-people. How do normal people on earth find out what is happening with allied planets 1000's of lightyears away. In are world we use the internet, the media and other ways of finding out about are world, but I never say any evidence of this within any of the shows. Does anyone have any thoughts on this.
