Any time some one posts how we should all be delivering medical supplies to orphans or kittens to peace delegations I remember this awesome dialog from DS9.
"On Earth, there is no poverty, no crime, no war. You look out the window of Starfleet Headquarters and you see paradise. Well, it's easy to be a saint in paradise, but the Maquis do not live in paradise. Out there in the Demilitarized Zone, all the problems haven't been solved yet. Out there, there are no saints — just people. Angry, scared, determined people who are going to do whatever it takes to survive, whether it meets with Federation approval or not!"
Out side of earth there are real problems, and all the well wishes of long life and prosperity are not going to solve the problems going on in the STO universe. If you want to save the world in this game without blowing stuff up go play those aid the planet missions that don't give you rewards any more.
