Interstellar Law and Treaties

The universe of Star Trek is so much richer when we create detailed background documents to explain and describe what goes on after the show ends. And the tradition of rewriting real-life documents to fit the fictional universe goes back to Franz Joseph’s Star Trek Technical Manual. (For those who didn’t know, his version of the Federation Charter was quite liberally borrowed from the real Charter of the United Nations.)

Back in college, I had the opportunity to immerse myself in some similar documents during research for my history classes. And I was inspired to do basically the same thing; take some real-world documents and rewrite them to fit the Star Trek universe.
