A highly enjoyable read. Some interesting prospects on the horizon. Mysterious ships, readings, possible Klingon civil strife, and now the Federation is beginning to feel the strain of covering so much space with limited ships and personnel. Things are heating up.

Here is the last paragraph. Having not read the books I can't be sure, but I read this as a hit to the last few sentences.

Quote:
And, citing the success of the extremely diverse crews of the U.S.S. Titan and her sister ships, Starfleet assigns a committee to consider expanding the admission standards at Starfleet Academy to provide more opportunities for races that are formally allied with the Federation but are not full member worlds. "Not everyone knows a Starfleet captain and can get a personal recommendation," said spokesperson Marie Durant. "That doesn’t mean they wouldn't be fine officers."
I'm guessing there is something in the books about the Titan that explains what this is about.

Awesome! Really liked this installment, there's an awful lot going on in 2391 it seems! A little sad we've not heard what the Defiant's been up to - that baby would be a major statement patrolling one of the borders and would free up some other ships!

Theres not, I've read them...it's just cryptics way of trying to Explain all the player created races....without realizing any race could already join Starfleet

They realized it. However it is more difficult for non-Federation races to join. We don't know all the processes but one process is having an officer recommend you. In the Nog episode it said specifically Captain I believe though as said the conversation between Garak and Worf would seem to suggest it could be any officer.

Maybe Starfleet is just making it easier. Maybe Nog's only choice was Sisko for some reason (he didn't live by an Academy) much like how for some idiotic reason Wesley Crusher was limited when he wanted to join (even though it looks like enlisting is pretty much 'sign me up!' and you're in the classes. :p
