The New England Federation Starfleet is filled with Federation citizens who are just a bit too rebellious to be entirely comfortable in the Better Americas for Better Americans the Federation builds. It is an entirely volunteer organization, and most people who serve end up going back home after their first tour. They’ve seen how bad things are out there and are suddenly very happy to go home. But Starfleet is run by those who never go home. Those who realized how bad things are out there, and will never let it come for their homes, their families. They are the sheepdogs, protecting the sheep from the wolves most don’t even know exist. And behind every Starfleet smile is a suspicious mind wondering if you are a wolf that needs to be put down.
