Is Starfleet Order 24 muligt?

5

General Order 24 af Starfleet er en ordre om at ødelægge alt liv på en planet ved hjælp af banebombardement (som nævnt her og her ). For at citere ordren:

If a commanding officer deems that a planet has been culturally contaminated to a point where correction is no longer viable and said culture now poses a direct threat to Starfleet personnel or Federation civilians, he may order the destruction of a planet’s surface to occur within a time limit set upon invocation.

Kort sagt, hvis Starfleet-kaptajnen føler det, kunne han lige så godt forstyrre en hel civilisation.

Er der noget skib i virksomheden, der er i stand til at udføre en sådan feat enkeltstående? Hvis ja, er der en slags våben ombord på dette skib (svarende til Death Star i Star Wars), der kan eliminere alt liv på planeten?

Ja, USS Defiant viser, at ethvert Starfleet-skib ville kunne gøre det i Deep Space 9 : For Uniform

Fra hukommelsen alfa synopsis:

Sisko then proceeds with the same strategy the Maquis had been using, he prepares to launch biogenic weapons comprised of trilithium resin at a Maquis settlement. A reversal of Eddington's weapon, the resin bomb would poison the atmosphere with a toxin that is deadly to Humans, but harmless to Cardassians. Sisko broadcasts a message revealing his intentions, but Eddington dismisses it as a Federation bluff. Sisko then orders the weapons fired, and Worf initially hesitates as he and the rest of the bridge crew are shocked that Sisko is following through with his threat. Sisko repeats his order, and Worf launches the weapons which do their job and poison the atmosphere, with Maquis transports scrambling to evacuate the settlement. Sisko announces that he plans to continue his campaign against all of the Maquis colonies in the DMZ, telling Eddington that when he attacked the Malinche the Maquis proved themselves to be an unacceptable threat to the Federation. Eddington offers to turn over the Maquis' stocks of biogenic weapons, but Sisko tells him that isn't enough. This leads Eddington to turn himself in to prevent further attacks, thus fulfilling the self-sacrificial part of his hero fantasy.

Da næsten ethvert skib i Star Fleet er udstyret med et laboratorium og besidder torpedoer, kan de skabe et tilsvarende biogent våben, der er skræddersyet til de pågældende arter, de ønsker at ødelægge.
