A ship yes, but I was referring to the formation of the federation. Watching "tensions and conflicts" in heated committee room sessions and seeing alien officials plot their next back stabbing doesn't interest me, I don't need to see Game of Thrones set in the 22nd century. While it is a part of Star Trek's background, I've never found the federation itself to be particularing important. If the various viewpoints were given equal validity and backed in a version of sound reason then yes. However if there's going to be "the one true way" and everything else is going to be depicted a wrong or silly, then no. Only a fraction of the federation sure. But for all we know the majority of federation member species have zero participation in Starfleet. By appearances Humans compose the bulk of Starfleet. We've seen only two black Vulcans. Please seek employment at Paramount.
