Yep.

Same with TV studios. I wrote a story for DS9 back in the 90s... just a stupid kid back then. Went on about how cool it would be to see a story about how a pacifist society like the UFP would wage war for it's own survival.

Then they did the Dominion War arch. They sent back my manuscript 'Unread', and cited that exact reason you mentioned above.
