I'm sure someone could come up with something.
I would argue that Traveller's 3rd Imperium is not Star Trek's United Federation of Planets. In Star Trek, a planet-wide neutralizer (fabricated on the Enterprise during a commercial break) would be used to kill just the bad things on a planet's surface. A feudal technocracy has other things motivating it.
