How would they know if you make a settlement on the other side of the planet?
But isn't relocating to the ring planet the same as today having to move next to the factory that makes your medicine?
If you need insulin, it gets shipped to you (or your pharmacy), you don't have live where it's made.
Picard was attracted to the Baku life style, would a modern 24th century community have been as desirable to him, even if on the same planet?
I've always thought it made no sense for Picard to admire the Baku lifestyle the way he did. Picard was never shown as some back to nature traditionalist. If anything, that was his brother's philosophy more than his. TV series Picard might have been "to each their own," but wouldn't have been charmed by it the way movie Picard seemed to be.
