The Federation is a social experiment doomed to failure. Childish idealism. Every species, every choice, every opinion is not equal, no matter how much they want it to be. The strong and the capable will always rise.
We choose our own pain. Mine helps me remember.
Universal law is for lackeys. Context is for kings.
If you’re planning on disobeying a direct order, best not to advertise the fact.
Every living being is safer and happier knowing their place.
