Re: Did Picard make the right decision with the Son'a/Baku
Yes, the Ba'ku settled on the planet before the Federation was founded. The Prime Directive forbids them from interferring in pre-warp planets or planets that don't want anything to do with the Federation. It initally seemed as if the Ba'ku were pre-warp and when it was discovered that they where warp capable nobody asked them would you mind moving so we can use the wonders of this planet to benefit hundreds of billions. Instead they tried to engage in forced re-location by deception.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
