Re: Was Capt. Picard negligent to crew safety in First Contact?
If Picard had evacuated when suggested the Borg still would have stopped the self destruct and then assimilated Earth.
Not really. Data by his own admission was only tempted for a second. Really the whole self-destruct/firing thing was just him deciding to screw with both Picard and the Queen's minds for whatever reason.
