- The Enterprise has arrived in the neighborhood of GC 2006, Andrew's Star, after being assigned to provide security and assistance for the eight leg of the Centauris' Cup, the Federation's major bi-yearly stellar sailing competition.
Whether because of the innate prestige of the event or the substantial prizes being offered. This year's turnout has been unusually large, posing security and safety problems to which the simplest answer is a starship.

- I have spent some while reviewing what information we have about the competing teams... And have had powerfully reinforced my sense that much sport is simply a sanitized idiom for aggression.
A more acceptable face of aggression... Perhaps, but there is not a team which appears to be competing for the joy of sailing alone. In every case, other agendas are operating, political or personal.
I don't remember it being this way in the old days, or am i just seeing the sport more clearly, thirty years after the fact/
