Commander Sisko: "Do you know what the trouble is? The trouble is Earth-on Earth there is no poverty, no crime, no war. You look out the window of Starfleet Headquarters and you see paradise. It's easy to be a saint in paradise, but the Maquis do not live in paradise. Out there in the demilitarized zone all the problems haven't been solved yet. Out there, there are no saints, just people-angry, scared, determined people who are going to do whatever it takes to survive, whether it meets with Federation approval or not."

What an idyllic and utopian view of Earth's future. I tend to think that the future depicted in "The Expanse" series might be a more accurate forecast with 27 billion people crammed on our little rock with over half relying on "basic assistance" (welfare) for their survival.

Star Trek has always shown us an idyllic and utopian future. Adventurers went to the stars and colonies.

I hear there is a counterfeit ST shows that are trying to turn this foundation on its head....
