Alynna Nechayev -- To destroy the Borg using Hugh as genocidal malware is just wrong, and no amount of pips on the collar can change that.
IIRC the "malware" would have severed the connects between the Borg drones, basically it would have freed the Borg, turning them back into individuals. Some undoubtedly would have died, many others would have survived.

While I agree that Picard made the right call, I don't think Nechayev is a jerk just because she favored using Hugh as a weapon.
Nechayev figured out that it's permissible to harm your enemies soldiers, even if they're conscripts and slaves. And there is actually no way to tell if Hugh would have been harmed by the process.
