My theory the British finally invaded the French. They got tired of France being 'too French'.

I hate the French personally. I might have joined that in the Trek universe.

Actually, if I may quote a book I recently purchased, 'The Autobiography of jean-Luc Picard', page eleven...
Destroying the technological base was not the only legacy of Ericsson's invasion. Though of Nordic descent, Ericsson was raised in the United Kingdom, and sought to remake Europe as a reborn British Empire. One of the remaining monuments to the success of his efforts is the fact that, even in the 24th century, many French people have British accents.
So you're sorta right. :D

Except of cause the waiter in "We'll always have Paris", who did have a French accent.

Probably just did that for the tourists. Anything for a credit. ;)
