Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix
They aren't there, they are no long a cloud of energy with the hope of being reassembled. So basically they don't exist any more. let me repeat that THEY HAVE CEASED TO EXIST. So how is it jumping to conclusions to believe that that something that no longer exists as an entity is no longer alive?
To be more precise, they are ex-parrots.
