Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix
When Tuvok and Neelix used the Transporter they accepted that there was a risk no matter how small of a transporter malfunction. And Tuvix was created by a transporter malfunction.
So in part they accepted the risk that they could die as a result of a transporter malfunction. Now they did die in a fashion being combined to form Tuvix. A fully sentient being, who should have been afforded the same rights as any other being. The Federation has principals and sometimes you don't get what you want (Tuvok and Neelix) back if you hold true to them.
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.
