I think it's safe to say that the United Federation of Planets does not engage in capital punishment anymore
Maybe they might want to reconsider this. Wouldn't it be much too dangerous to leave any Section 31 member alive?
That's a dangerous road to tread down. I mean, seriously, if we're going to violate one of the Federation's basic principles -- the right of sentient entities to live -- because we think that the ends of serving justice and protecting the Federation justify the means (execution) -- then, really, how are we any different from Section 31?
