What if Alliance from Firefly was the Federation from Star Trek?

Obviously the protagonists of Star Trek would not condone Miranda or what was done to River, but they don't know everything that happens in the Federation. A matter of perspective- people who believe in the Federation vs. people who don't, which colors the narratives. Plus, the Star Trek people don't seem to spend a lot of time in areas like Firefly's location- backwater but a part of the Federation- because they're either on one of the major planets or exploring outside of the Federation.

Issues to writing this crossover:
  • Earth uninhabitable vs. still inhabited
  • aliens vs. no aliens
  • your brain may break from reconciling two images of the Federation/the Alliance
Possible scenes:
  • Federation officers/crewmembers in same bar as Firefly crew (on Unification Day!)
  • Ship sent due to the broadcast about Miranda

This is an interesting idea. I thought Firefly's Alliance might be kind of a swipe at all those quasi-military institutions and formless utopias like Starfleet and the Federation.
