Like someone suggested a month ago in this thread.. Janeway was still under the Memorial's influence. A touch of Stockholm. All that practicality you suggest Trannie-sylv didn't give her the same emotional hit as getting others to go through what she had been through. It's like when your friends want you to just try this illicit substance once or go on have another pint when you are clearly not going to cope with it. Your pain is cathartic of their pain. I think if they had just backed away for a couple months and then revisited this discussion Janeway would have gutted the place and turned it into a diorama.
