Space The Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its Five Year Mission, to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new civilisations. To boldly go where no man has gone before.
So wheres Captain Kirk and the U.S.S Enterprise NCC 1701? Why out there, somewhere in the swirling cosmic clouds of the Milkyway, second star to the right.
The fact is our "tin plated dictator with delusions of godhood", Kirk has warped out of sensor range. Theres just far too many epic battles to be waged. Maybe next time Trekkies. There have been many times when conflict with the Romulans has been unavoidable. The Federation's battles with the Romulan Star Empire resulted in the formation of the Neutral Zone in 2160.

It interesting to note that the Earth/Romulan war as it is known led to the formation of the Romulan/Federation Neutral Zone because both sides wanted Peace. It was called the Earth/Romulan War because the Federation was established as a planetary state known as United Earth which kicked off in 2063. Zefram Cochrane established an earth alliance with the Vulcans who noticed his first warp space flight during First Contact. The constitution of the United Federation of Planets was created in 2161. Captain Picard's U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701-D managed to prevent a Borg invasion proving that even "human weaklings" can stand up and be counted.
