  1. The book Trekonomics talks about how we’re already post-scarcity now, that the main hurdle to Trek’s economy is that we need to overthrow the hoarders and redistribute our resources. It’s not that we don’t have replicators.

    I think that SNW is at least planning of having Pike realize that the Gorn aren’t monsters, which they set up by having him say that they are, then having that chat in the diner.
