==Population==
 
In DS9 episode "Statistical Probabilities" it is predicted that Federation will suffer 900 billion casualties (both military and civilian) before being forced to surrender. This seems to suggest total population of around 1.2 to 2 trillion. If we assume population of around 6 billion for each of 150 member planets, that gives 900 billion in total. Additional 300 billion to 1.1 trillion in colonies gives average population per colony as bieng 300 million to 1.1 billion. --[[User:Picard578|Picard578]] 13:47, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

The Federation has technology comparable to that of the other major powers in the Alpha Quadrant.  Their military readiness, however, is lacking compared to that of their neighbors.  While their ships are individually powerful, often substantially more powerful than those of their neighbors,<ref>TNG "The Wounded"</ref> they tend to be few in number, as indicated by the perpetual shortage of ships in position to respond to military emergencies.<ref>''[[Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan]]'', TNG "Angel One", TNG "The Best of Both Worlds"</ref>  Furthermore, many [[Starfleet]] officers do not regard Starfleet as a military organization (despite its control of nearly all military assets in the Federation), and Starfleet itself does not conduct routine combat exercises to keep its crews prepared for military action.<ref>TNG "Peak Performance"</ref> Starship captains can often initialize "combat drills" when they feel is needed, which is logical given extreme autonomy of individual starships enjoy during peacetime operations.
