It's funny, because now the utopian ideal of humanity and the Federation look positively unique to me when I watch TNG or original series.
Utopian ideal extends to essentially having a limitless power supply and the ability to convert energy into anything anybody wants in short order. From an economic perspective the Federation makes no sense, and I always found myself thinking that when I watched.
Need vaccines? Zap them into creation and beam them to whatever planet is dying. Problem solved! Need a few bucks to spend the weekend on Eroticon 6? Zap them up on the spot. Apparently the people that work there don't have a zapper of their own or they'd be guests themselves. They'd only need one because you could use it to zap up another zapper.
Now the people on Deep Space Nine -- apparently their zappers haven't arrived yet, because they have all sorts of issues to deal with. Would it kill the Federation to send just one zapper to Deep Space Nine?
Would it kill you to put the complete game in the first box?
