Re: PIC S1: Remembrance

"Consider "Insurrection" were an Admiral, backed by the Federation Council works with a violent, hostile race in order to uproot another, all for the sake of revitalizing the Federation. Per Ruafo "Federation support. Federation procedures. Federation rules! Look in the mirror, Admiral. The Federation is old! In the past twenty-four months they have been challenged by every major power in the quadrant: The Borg, the Cardassians, the Dominion. They all smell the scent of death of the Federation. That's why you've embraced our offer. Because it will give your dear Federation new life. Well, how badly do you want it, Admiral? Because there are hard choices to be made, NOW!" The Federation has been struggling. That's where we left it 18 years ago. Trying to claw it's way back to idealism, struggling against the dark. Then Romulus exploded. And here was a chance. A chance for the Federation to be what it was... and it ended in disaster, and all the pent up worries and fears were exposed, and it seems the Federation broke after all the strain it was under. It didn't die. It just became something else. And this show Picard seems to about trying to set it right."

THIS. What I miss about TNG and DS9 allegories were the close look at BOTH sides. It seems modern shows quickly decide who's right and demonize the other. I will gladly see the Federation's reaction to Romulus challenged as long as it is also understood. I think that's the only real way to have an interesting discussion about the fictional event - and any real-world situation. The Federation's actions have to make sense and be justified to a certain extent. They can't just be "bad" or "mean" because reasons.

I hope the writers see this way you do, I would be interested in seeing that.
