i bet starfleet cadets don’t have student loans

but they dont — a lot of the freedom that you see in the star trek universe stems from the fact that there is no such thing as money anymore. like really. watch the series and they never get paid, they dont haggle over prices. in that dumb original star trek movie where they go back in time to save the whales and kirk goes out for pizza in the eighties, he almost pulls a dine-and-ditch cause no one in the future carries money.

i always thought it alleviated a lot of the societal problems too like you wanna go to starfleet? well if u got the grades go for it cause its fuckin free. food you dont have to pay for and drinks and clothes basically they removed the class stratification that cements a gulf between poor and rich and solved a lot of problems through science and star trek is great and everyone should watch it even if the special effects are dumb
