Further, there's so much to this movie that doesn't make any sense.
Which is why the Sona (likely) approached the Federation Council in the first place. The Federation would have realized that the planet belonged to them as soon as they found out the co-ordinates.
that the Son'a have equal claim to ...
In other words zero claim, which is just as much claim as the Baku had to the planet.
and that the inhabitants aren't primitives.
The Federation were always aware that the Baku migrated there from somewhere else. The only
person in the movie who as unaware of this initially was Picard.
... but when the where they ASKED about it?
Exactly what should the Baku have been asked about?
Remember ... IT ... ISN'T ... THE ... BAKU'S ... PLANET
But aren't Artim and the other Ba'ku children natives of the planet, having been born there? Also, the other Ba'ku who aren't over 300 years old like Anij and Sojef, lived their entire life on the planet.
I also don't get how the Federation owns the planet when they didn't exist centuries ago from when the Ba'ku first settled there.
