Too much power woth too few people. Too much beuraucracy. A world united without a centralised government, preferably with none at all, that's more to my liking.

Star trek also has a lot of crap. It's not necessarily good.
Even now a days writers of star trek have been actually divulging into the purity of such a world government.
Star Trek is fiction. In reality humans are not that pure.
I am convinced that the first alien encounter humanity will have will end in us colonizing and taking over their planet(s) for resources to fuel our own early type 1 government. And I don't think anyone can stop us. We are simply too strong and resilient to be stopped.
So I ask you, why is it that a world government would be a good thing? In the 90s and 2000s, the US stood as the inheritor of the world. With the USSR gone, the US stood alone as the world leader. Look what happened. Are you sure you'd like that on a global stage? Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
