As the idiom goes, that's it, that's the Federation.

I know the series isn't going to be *this*, by and large, and it's not going to be *about this*. But there were moments, scenes, minutes, when I was back, not just in an universe I like, but a place, an organization, a *people* I like, sympathize with, has long been an influence on who I want to work with, work like, and be like. Some parts of TNG, the Enterprise when it was at its usual best, that was a form of home. And these moments, more than anything else I've seen in a Star Trek series, never mind the movies, felt like being back home.
