Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix
But out on the frontier and out of contact with Starfleet, she has a duty to the other 140-plus people under her command to do her job to the best of her ability. In order to do that, she needs the people she trusts and that is Tuvok and to a lesser degree Neelix.
I'd agree with that argument if it wasn't that she said exactly the opposite thing in her log. She found Tuvix to be a wise counselor who used humor to get his point across. We saw that Tuvix used intuition to solve a problem that would have stymied Tuvok.
Tuvix had proven himself as an officer.
