He was a pretty popular captain. They've redone Kirk, why not Picard? They might give the whole Picard vs clone angle with Shinzon a better go this time. Maybe have a series, introduce him and have him accompany the main characters as an ally for a season or more then have him gradually drift apart from the crew for various reasons. Matti23

[[WMG: Starfleet's ship names are more inclusive than English spelling reveals]]
A common complaint about "Star Trek" is, if Starfleet is supposed to be an organization made up of many species, why do 90% of the ships have Human names? For starters, as some have pointed out, words like "Voyager" and "Defiant" would likely exist in most alien languages, so unless the name is officially the English translation, those ships' names are not "Human." But what about the ridiculous amount of ships named after American states or Indian Chiefs or Shakespeare characters? Answer: Starfleet often chooses names that have meanings for several species. "Saratoga" is a city in New York, "Sar'Atoga" is a mountain on Vulcan, "Saratoga" means "bright antennae" in an Andorian language, etc. The starships have their Earth spellings when written in Human languages, but receive their alien spellings when being discussed in alien languages.

* Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians, and all the other militant, expansionist powers don't have a Prime Directive except to conquer. If Klingon warships were as prone to temporal displacement as Federation starships, we'd all be speaking Klingon.

** I was always bitter about how they retconned "baby borg" out. The Borg were interesting before they got changeded from the ultimate Space Communitarians to the Space Zombie Empire.

And he's performed miracles. He taught a Jem'hadar, one of a genetically engineered killing machines with no morals or code of honor, just by being a {{badass}} {{determinator}}.

[[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.
