Hostage situation? That's thin. My parents may have said I'm an accident, but that doesn't give some person with nominal authority over me the right to decide I die so they can harvest my organs to save two people they like more.

However he was created, Tuvix is a living sentient lifeform with all the rights anyone else would have.

giving your organs to some unrelated people is a different scenario. Tuvix' birth was the RESULT of the destruction of Tuvok and Neelix as individuals.


The most moral outcome here would have been if Tuvix had been persuaded to voluntarily undergo the procedure.
