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?
I see your point. So what would you suggest the Federation do with them?
I'd say that locking them up in a high-security prison for a term lasting however long a qualified judiciary judges to be proportional to the severity of the crimes committed by that individual sounds good to me.
