What if Earth and the other three alien species, the Andorians, Tellarites, and Vuclans, never formed the Coalition of Planets that would eventually lead to the Federation? What if Trek history had gone as it did in Canon until the late 2150s, where, despite Earth having changed the status quo and put the formally rival Andorians, Vulcans and Tellarites at peace with one another, the four species had chosen not to take things one step further and form an alliance? What do you guys think the Trek universe would look like, from the events taking place immediately after the Enterprise timeframe, up the Nemesis era? My own thoughts... Post Enterprise Era (2150s through 2260s) Earth continues to advance technologically, and its colonies are continuing to grow. Starfleet builds new starships, with faster warp drives and better weapons systems. Colonists from Earth establish colonies all around local space. Although Earth is still far from being on par with the Vulcans, Andorians, and Tellarites, they are on track to become a significant local power. The rampant corruption within Vulcan society is on the mend, and Vulcans, no longer threatened by the Andorians, begin to move in a more pacifistic direction. Vulcan technology continues to advance at a rapid rate, which serves as a sufficient deterrent to aggression from other species. TOS Era (2260s) Earth has established itself as a significant power in local space, having colonized dozens of systems. Earth has caught up with its neighboring species technologically, thanks to a mixture of intensive research programs as well as trade. However, having explored much of local space, and having come into contact with the Klingons, Starfleet is significantly more military oriented than in the canon universe. Klingon aggression has prompted humans, Vulcans, Andorians, and Tellarites to enter into a mutual defense pact to deter the Klingons. What do you guys think the Trek universe would look like, from the events taking place immediately after the Enterprise timeframe, up the Nemesis era?
