It’s polling day here in the UK and who said politics can’t be fun? Last week we compared Trek characters to politician personalities and today we thought we’d ask; what would be the key campaigning topics if we were living in the 24th Century. Rather than #GE2015 it’s #GE2394
Any Federation Presidential candidate worth their salt will have a strategy in place for dealing with the repercussions of Romulus’s demise. Hopefully this will encourage the Vulcan/Romulan unification process further.
We’d also be keen to hear their stance on Remans, who’s world would have been destroyed by the same Super-nova. What efforts are taking place to repatriate them with their Roman brothers and Sisters and Vulcan cousins?
Klingon and Cardassian Empires
These empires are attempting to recover from being decimated by the Dominion War. The Federation should not assume they are weak and no threat. In times of desperation, wacko’s can easily gain a following and take leadership. You just need to look at Bajor as an example of that. A Federation President needs to reach out a supporting hand and give aid. A happy prosperous neighbour makes a happy home and stabilised region.
We want a Federation Council who is going to scrutinise Starfleet Command and flush out all these baddies! This will be needed more than ever after the war which has attracted or brought out some darker personalities in the corridors of Starfleet HQ.
“She or someone like her will always be with us, waiting for the right climate in which to flourish. Spreading fear in the name of righteousness. Vigilance, Mr. Worf. That is the price we have to continually pay.”
Picard to Worf. The Drumhead
As much as we love the S31 episodes and want to be one of their agents, it is unaccountable, anti-democratic and oppressive. It has to be bought down. Of course no candidate has lived long enough to see that through. (We’re on a list now, aren’t we!?)
Photons be free! We see the EMH campaigning hard on this one. Anyone who opposes this is met with the argument “Were you against giving Data freedom and rights twenty years ago, because it’s the same thing!”
Now it’s even more precious than when it was illegal! We want to see a u-turn on this policy and a strategy to keep this race identity alive. The Romulans might die out but their famed beverage needn’t!
Out of all of the subjects listed, we feel most strongly about this one!
What subjects do you think will be hot in #GE2394? Let us know in the comments section…
