when you consider other planets that will most likely have huge pops like trill, tella, batazed i think a 300 million average is on the low end of the scale.
Earth today is hovering around 6.4 Billion. Even assuming massive losses to the Eugenics Wars, WWIII, the Earth-Romulan War, Colonization/Emigration, the Xindi attack, the (first) Cardassian War, the Dominion War, various encounters with the Borg and failed colonies like
, and more responsible reproductive habits, we're still probably in the 4-5 Billion range around STOs timeline.
I'd be willing to bet with the Pon Far cycle and highly logical society, however, that Vulcan would maybe be around half that. But Betazed? Twice that.
EDIT: Oh, and Delta IV? We don't
want to know.
