    Somehow I think that this is hardly the start of the Federation. Terran Empire in that other universe is more likely.

    But seriously:

    1) no new capabilities? - check
    2) additional non productive layer of bureaucracy? - check
    3) more budget busting? - check
    4) entertainment value? - priceless

    Yep. It's all good.
