Episode 23 – JAG Wars
.

"The founders of Star Fleet and the United Federation of Planets dreamed of a post scarcity, multi-species culture that would be at once universal and egalitarian. The reality was that such a culture would have to be realized by animals relying heavily on the most advanced technology they could muster. And each of the worlds that participated had only recently emerged from their own petty squabbles and fears over globalization of their own cultures. Many of them were still embroiled in those battles when they took on the much larger challenge of creating from a dozen separate species, a single culture based on moral principles that had not yet gained global acceptance within any of their worlds.

"Despite these best intentions, armed rebellion against the Federation and its most iconic institution, Star Fleet, was inevitable. Even though Star Fleet was always an arm of the United Earth Governments and not of the Federation Council itself, Earth's fleet, by far the most powerful of the various homeworld fleets composing the Federation, has come to be universally perceived as the enforcer of a Federation that was always intended to be a strictly voluntary association.

"Unique among Earth military structures, Star Fleet does not have a military police force. As that function became increasingly necessary, it was inevitably assigned to the Office of Judge Advocate General as the only native law enforcement arm within Star Fleet.

"Eventually, in a desperate attempt to prevent Star Fleet from becoming a police force in and of itself, an increasing number of law enforcement functions, such as suppression of piracy, have been assigned to JAG. As a result, JAG has been assigned resources – at first only two Escort class ships. But the Prowler class was developed exclusively for JAG functions. In response to internal needs, this class of small, fast and versatile ships is now poised to swell into a dedicated, potent military and general police force. Just what the founders of Star Fleet never wanted."
