Connor Speak aka “the Rocketman” returns to the show this week to examine the politics of Star Trek. The Federation may be all wine and roses, but who’s pruning the thorns and squishing the grapes. Is a government like the UFP completely fictional, or can we get a little slice of utopia here on Earth? We can’t promise you a definitive answer, but we think we’re asking the right questions!
