Sorry, but playing god with people's lives is not "simple numbers game" or a game at all, and it's either right or wrong. Where they are is inconsequential.
Decisions are driven everyday by the circumstance in which an individual exists.

It's dishonest to say life-and-death decisions aren't driven by numbers. The whole point of Troi's command test was that she may have to pick someone to die so others can live.
Troi's command test was bollocks anyhow. "In order to win, you must sentence this holographic recreation of your actual friend to death!"

I would have been a lot more impressed if they'd rigged it so that she didn't know it was a simulation and had been bothered by her choice after the fact.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
