Re: Data and killing

Data had every right to kill Fajo, both to remove him as a threat to himself and others and because as a Starfleet officer he had a duty to escape. The fact that, in that particular moment, he was not an immediate threat is irrelevant, because at any moment members of Fajo's crew could arrive to try to capture him again. Once that happened Fajo would inevitably increase his security precautions, making escape even more difficult. Data had no reason to believe outside help would ever arrive and so he had to act immediately.
