25 Rules of Starfleet

Star Trek: 15 Rules Starfleet Is Forced To Follow (And 10 They Always Break)

In our list, we’ve come through countless general orders, regulations, protocols, charter articles, procedures, directives, guidelines and even some overarching Federation laws to bring you the strictest (and strangest) rules available… along with the ones that no one seems to care about.

Some of the major rules for Starfleet personnel might even shock the most hardened of Star Trek fan, though the captains and characters who are regular lawbreakers probably won’t. Then again, there are a few character who typically abide by regulations that surprisingly toss a select few to the wind, so you might be surprised after all.

25. Forced to Follow: Capital Punishment Exists For Only One Crime

One of the strictest laws developed within Starfleet was the abolishment of capital punishment. Even on our Earth in the current age, centuries before the events of Star Trek are meant to take place, there is a constant political grappling about the subject.

That said, Starfleet has an exception attached to the taking of lives as a punishment, and it’s legitimately weird: Don’t go to Talos IV. Should you break that simple order, you’ll face much worse than a court martial. The reason behind this is that the Talosians have immense hallucinatory powers, and they have chosen to remain isolated in order to protect other species from their destructive capabilities.

It's all on one page but there are also a sliders link available for those who prefer that.

I wonder what those rules about punctuation are about.
