Quote:If they were equals then their name wouldn't be on it. The implication is that Wakanda has taken over and subsumed other planets and cultures, which is not something a country like Wakanda would or could do. They are extreme isolationists. They don't like sharing their technology or culture, which would be required to be an empire, especially an intergalactic one.
I guess my point which is hard to articulate...maybe they're isolationists because they despise the rest of humanity...but in a new context (like meeting advanced alien cultures) they've put their best foot forward. How you act around group A may not be how you act around group B.
I'm assuming the Wakandas have neither conquered alien worlds or come together out of a sense of fellowship like the Federation...they're trading. Wakanda must have something (vibranium?) even the aliens want to barter for and it's making them rich IMO.
