Re: Prime Directive problem with "Homeward"

...Not that I'd see anything wrong with your way of thinking in the context of the show, where our human heroes indeed seem to have a callous attitude about death in general, and death of others in particular. It's just that the idea of choosing death over life is so alien to our way of, well, life, except in cases where death can be argued to decrease suffering. Be that the victim's, or the killer's... No such considerations would seem to apply in the "passive euthanizing" of the Boraalans.
