Re: Was Picard wrong in I,Borg?

Well, I probably shouldve read the whole discussion so far, cuz this may have been mentioned. If it has been, forgive me....

But wasn't the point of "I, Borg", not that the genocide would be wrong, but that using Hugh as the instrument after he had regained individuality was wrong? The fact of the matter was that Picard changed his mind after he realized Hugh was capable of making the choice as an individual, that he had wants and preferences just like the rest of them. Everyone apart from Crusher agreed pretty quickly that the plan was right to do, it was the idea of using Hugh to do it that created the moral dilemma.
