er, no, the people in the UFP would get greatly extended lifespans. As would the Baku, if they got access to the same process. It's not hypocrisy if all the parties got the same thing from it.
No they wouldn't get access to it, Doughtery pretty much said the Ba'ku were getting squat out of this with his whole "returning them to their proper course of evolution" stuff.
Yup. The original plan was to move the Ba'ku without their knowledge. Their home would be stolen from them and they would ideally never even know it had happened.

Not exactly the actions of a "benevolent" galactic power.

I agree that the holoship deception plan was a lousy one. I should have clarified that I meant that the Baku could have had access to the particles under the scenario of a negotiation AFTER Picard discovered the true nature of the Baku. At that point deception was no longer necessary, they could have just laid out the situation and offered to share the resources with the Baku.
