Take the Bajoran Occupation.
Let's not and just say we did.

STO is a game. Nothing more. If you read politics into every nuance of an online video game, I pity you. Now if you want to get serious about Star Trek the shows, movies, and novels that's another matter. Still even on the small screen, they take a light hand to stuff like racism, discrimination, sexual identity, and that interracial kiss between Kirk and Uhura.

I'm a rightwing Republican living in the States. That political enough for you? I hear about liberals, First Amendment, media bias, angry mobs, partisanship, political grandstanding, and rationalization all the time. It's a cacophony. You don't think I deserve a break from that noise? Too bad because I won't be playing any more missions you may make. JMHO.
