Um, under the situation being discussed they are the same people, you know the whole 4 way between the Ba'ku, Picard, Dougherty, and the Son'a thing.
Um, no. There's no reason why the Ba'ku should have to deal with Dougherty, who's quite obviously compromised.
There is never even a hint of seeking out a diplomatic solution anywhere in the movie. Which is part of the reason the movie fails. Picard is suppose to be one of the Federations best diplomats yet doesn't even try to broker a solution that works for everyone.

Essentially, the story fails because Picard is never the Picard we know from the TV series.
