We’re often enamored, or at least intrigued by cultures that we are unfamiliar with in our world. From different ethnic foods, to traditions that we aren’t used to, there’s a lot to learn from stepping outside of our comfort zone and immersing ourselves in the realm of another group of people. Certainly this isn’t a new idea, as exchange student programs have been around for a while and people have been traveling the globe for hundreds of years. But what would happen if that globe suddenly got a whole lot bigger?
That brings us to this week’s poll of the week question: If you could choose to be involved in an exchange officer program with any other Star Trek ‘nation’, which would you choose?
Each of the options offers intrigue and the opportunity to learn a great deal, just like exchange programs here on Earth do, but which appeals to you the most? Is it the Romulans and their secrecy, or the warrior nature of the Klingons? Or maybe you’d like to spend a year with a race from the Gamma quadrant? Let us know, or feel free to add in a race we didn’t think of and let us know why!
