Given the scene in the last movie where Kirk's first name was arrived upon, umm exactly who was mommy's "love instructor" again? Icky That there could have been a rare occurrence Vulcan/Human "mule" in the form of Spock is one thing, that a wide variety of species could have children together is kind of loopy. Well they could drop their income below a certain point and tie into the social service system, there by effectively paying no taxes. Consider Sonak, while I do pay taxes, my government doesn't mandate what legal means I under take to earn that money. I am not assigned a job, nor required to live in a certain area to be reasonably adjacent to that job. Public transportation. No seat belts. Coercion isn't the deal-breaker, having to live in a socialist system would be. Hopefully the future Federation is free society, and not a socialist one. Okay, but it is matter of degree. At some point the level of "coercion" becomes unacceptable. My society forcing my activities and occupation would be far beyond that point, and a clear indication that the societies involvement needs to be drastically reduced. Better still, never allowed to reach that point in the first place..
