Star Trek's Federation seems like a real terrible type system the more I think about it.
Basically everyone dresses the same.
Military ships, armed to the teeth go on "exploration" missions.
The only people we ever see doing anything are state employees who are glamorised beyond belief.
There is a minimum wage type deal with contacting new civilisations, they have to FTL on their own or we don't contact them.
Lots of diseases are still incurable.
There has been nearly no technological advancement in like 300 year!!!! Basically there are replicators and holodecks and slightly faster ships that STILL can't leave the galaxy!
Lets face it guys, the Federation has killed all technological and cultural advancement in the future, stuff we are 20 years away from building never get developed under their "post-capitalist" world where no-one works for money but to "better themselves".
Take that Picard you statist!
