What's the actual incentive for people to work in Starfleet, bar wanting to see the galaxy? one would assume they're given something at least for sticking their neck out on the line against all kinds of space, sub-space and other miscellaneous phenomenons, as well as participating in wars, if so, then its going to be one heck of a paycheck for the voyager crew when/if they get back... -- Tom Adair tomadair@web-empire.co.uk
