[[WMG: Alternatively, the "empires" refer to the culture than conquered the planet.]]
Earth wasn't a single nation for most of history, and still has many cultures in the 24th Century. The same is true for most planets. But in the cases of the Andorians, Klingnos, and/or Romulans, one nation rules said planet, and has made their culture's name synonymous with the species.'

[[WMG: Bajorans are more agile than most Humanoids.]]
Bajorans are not just Humans with ridged noses and tilted hearts. Their "special alien power" so to speak is their agility. Consider:
* Bajorans wear those dangling earrings during guerrilla warfare, and Kira fights while wearing a net-like top. All in the forest. No human could do that without getting tangled in something, but Bajorans apparently can.
* Jadzia Dax chooses Leeta, a Bajoran, to be the temporary host for Emony Dax, the gymnast. Emony comments that Leeta's body was great for doing gymnastics in.
* On StarTrekVoyager, Bajoran Crewman Tabor was so agile in the Maquis that he never got a speck of dirt on him while fighting, and his fellow Maquis joked he had a personal forcefield. His might be an extreme example of Bajoran agility.

** Note that despite the abundance of uninhabited planets that could be used as a capital and Starfleet HQ, ''both'' of these functions are located on Earth -- a densely-populated planet. What's more, Starfleet HQ is in the middle of a civilian population center, San Francisco! It has been the target of hostile actions in both the original timeline, such as the Breen attack in [=DS9=], and in the reboot movies. One would almost think that they ''want'' anyone looking to behead the Federation to ''have'' to do so by attacking large numbers of civilians!

* Or was it? Star Trek's history has several points of divergence from our own, such as the Eugenics Wars. Since TOS established there are many identical Earth-like planets with parallel cultural development, Star Trek could in fact be set in the extreme past on another world. GeneRoddenberry was a Special Circumstances agent with a history book.

The Dilithium crystals are only regulating the antimatter reaction. The Federation seems to be harvesting antimatter from pre-existing deposits to power their ships. Given the feats that the Federation performs and the size of the Federation fleet, antimatter does not naturally occur in sufficient quantities to power the entire Federation. What if the antimatter deposits arenít natural? We know that in Star Trek, space is full of aliens, some of whom have come and gone far before the Federation existed. The antimatter the Federation is harvesting may simply be the energy storage facilities of those long dead cultures. Weíve certainly seen Dyson spheres made by alien cultures and even the Romulans have power sources that arenít reliant on mining antimatter. Matti23

antimatter.



Nature is unable to replenish antimatter in any meaningful amount, and any alien races that created the Federationís current reserves are long gone, as the Federation now claims those areas of space. The Federation itself seems unlikely to have alternate power sources that can meet their needs, leaving them with a finite power source that they are rapidly burning through. It may be possible that in the future the supply of antimatter will just run out and lead to an energy crisis in the Federation. At this time the Federation may be forced to buy or steal alternate power source technology from their neighbours. If they arenít able to successfully get this technology they will be forced to buy antimatter from their neighbours, leaving them at the mercy of other civilizations or take the antimatter reserves of other cultures by force.

*** Um, wut? Season 4 is when "Voyager" GrewTheBeard. This WMG might make sense if one is a [[HateDumb very bitter Kes fan]] I suppose.

* The T'Kon Empire discovers the Guardian of Forever, a device so ancient it far proceeds them. They created a library of all the time periods.

* When the central star goes nova the citizens of the library planet survive by diving into different time periods....possibly polluting the time stream, resulting in a future species deciding to send back the Tax Uthat to destroy them before they can pollute the time stream.

* The T'kon sent out asteroid sized slow boats and discovered other inteligent species. One of these species, The Iconians were able to use T'Kon technology to develop Gates that enabled instantaneous foot travel from one world to another. Gates still had to be deployed by slow boats, yet the T'Kon Empire spread across the alpha quadrant.

* All of the planets of stagnant cultures controlled by machines were remnants of the T'Kon Empire (this is part of why Kirk felt more justified in overturning their cultures because they were remnants of a dead culture).

[[WMG: Remnants of ancient long dead galactic cultures]]
* A species known as The Preservers faces extinction. Their last act as a species is to travel the galaxy, find intelligent life and seed them across inhabitable worlds that did not have intelligent life of their own.
* The last of the Preservers finds the T'Kon.
* System bound but technologically advanced the T'Kon had a cultural and technological renaissance after learning the last of the Preservers technology.
* The T'kon sent out asteroid sized slow boats and discovered other inteligent species. One of these species, The Iconians were able to use T'Kon technology to develop Gates that enabled instantaneous foot travel from one world to another. Gates still had to be deployed by slow boats, yet the T'Kon Empire spread across the alpha quadrant.
* The T'Kon Empire succesfully completes a Dyson Sphere. The Sphere had Iconian Gates to all corners of the Empire and major worlds may have had hundreds of gates on them.
* The T'Kon Empire discovers the Guardian of Forever, a device so ancient it far proceeds them. They created a library of all the time periods.
* The T'kon Empire created complex, non-sentient, AI to run their societies.
* The Doomsday Machine is released by an enemy of the T'Kon Empire. That enemy is later integrated into the Empire, but the Doomsday Machine is lost to deep space.
* As a major move in the Temporal Cold War the Tox Uthat is used to cause the central star of the T'Kon Dyson Sphere to go nova...scouring all life within the Dyson Sphere. Across the Empire gates that were open during the conflagration transmitted the stellar blast, wiping out the rest of the Empire. A few remnants remained.
* Sargon and them were from an outer colony of the T'Kon Empire that was cut off from the Empire and so its gate was not active. Eventually they downloaded their consciousness and took to the stars.
* All of the planets of stagnant cultures controlled by machines were remnants of the T'Kon Empire (this is part of why Kirk felt more justified in overturning their cultures because they were remnants of a dead culture).

* doesn't make much difference in the end. It's not like the computer creates the hologram once and forgets about it, it's still simulating it and all the interactions of any simulated parts continuously. So any holographic computer would logically have to be less powerful than the computer projecting it.
