Re: The Survivors

But reading the episode the way we are meant to means that we have to be willing to let Kivin off the hook for genocide. The episode stracks the deck by telling us that the Husnock are the most vicious and brutal race in the Trek universe and suggesting that, had Kevin not wiped them out, the Federation would have a big problem on its hands.

I always got the sneaking sense that real reason Picard doesn't come down harder on Kevin is because he is secretly grateful the Husnock won't be a problem.
