Okay this was intense. I had to go back and re-read the beginning to make sure this was taking place on Earth and not some far-flung colony world were wilderness rules prevail.

Quite a different interpretation of a future Earth society. One were there is no such thing as CPS, apparently.

Author's Response:

There are several open questions about a future Star Trek Earth. How would we protect our wildlife and wilderness against aliens with cloaking devices and transporters? And how much autonomy would indiginous people have to manage their affairs and protect their territory? If today's Maasai catch you poaching, they are not very friendly and they carry rifles in addition to spears and knives.

The arms race between poachers and rangers involves layers of technology on both sides. And quite a few poachers manage to make it through all the park services defenses. With dozens of technologically advanced alien races joining the fray, it seems to me encounters between poachers and nomadic populations would be likely to become increasingly deadly. 

Thanks!! rbs
