Re: TheGodBen Revisits Deep Space Nine
The problem with this episode is really more of a technical one. Destroying the ecosystem of an M-class world seems like an awfully high price to pay just to heat a couple of hundred thousand homes. For that sort of sacrifice you'd expect much greater returns, perhaps even enough energy to power half of Bajor.
That may be all it's used for now, with an eye on expansion?
Honestly, I'm surprised that the Bajorans even considered the process. Regardless of the waste, does nobody remember what happened to Praxis?
