Re: Rewatching "The High Ground"
What do you do with Yuta if you arrest her? Set her free and she's just going to start hunting again, capture her and there's no telling how long she'll be in your custody as she hadn't aged a day in fifty-three years and according to her she had been hunting for a century.
Vaporizing Yuta was probably the most humane thing Riker could have done.
