I don't know whether to be appalled, offended or shamed by your comment. The US has no more right over space than any other nation on this planet. It is in complete contrast to how Gene Roddenberry saw the future - one where humans (not Americans) ventured into space as a race, not as individual nations. This is not what I believe Star Trek stands for.
