Read a few posts back:
"Hm, I see where you're coming from, but if that's where this storyline goes I'll be pretty pissed."
Again, when we were talking about that, I was taking this from the perspective of the next writer to carry on this story. I was attempting to say that your description was one way to take the plot that would be consistent, I just hoped it didn't go that way.

But saying "that could be one explanation" is not the same thing as saying "this novel indicates that explanation is correct", and I never said the latter. I still contend it doesn't.

The tholians are barely perfecting their andorian puppet tech; a far cry from being able to control other, perhaps less susceptible, species.
There is actually a point in that scene where he mentions that it has something to do with the Andorian antennae specifically, so that's not even a plot hole in the first place, actually. (Which, I feel the need to clarify, doesn't make me think the plotline is any less inane.)
