Federation Membership Edit
When exactly did Bajor join the Federation? --Captain Chris 04:19, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
- By the end of DS9, they hadn't officially joined. -- sulfur 04:27, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
My point exactly, but why would the Bajoran Militia be absorbed in to Starfleet I know that the DS9 episode Rapture said that they would be merged into Starfleet but even the Vulcans had the V'Shar just curious to see what other people think.

- Apparently when a new World joins the Federation, their military force (here the Bajoran Militia) is absorbed by Starfleet. But as far as I know the V'Shar is not military. The Federation's primary intelligence service seems to be Starfleet Intelligence and it would be odd if they had another one. Maybe the UFP worlds keep some sort of planet-wide security service like a police and maybe thats the V'Shar for Vulcan. But be that as it may since the V'Shar is not military it doesnt condradice the statement that the Bajoran Militia would be absorbed into Starfleet. --Maxwell Fawkes 19:45, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
