Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix
I think it should be noted that the transporter mishaps we've seen in Trek have probably tended to be exceptions rather than rules and probably tend to end better than typical transporter accidents given the confines of our perspective (i.e. they're not going to do an episode where a primary character dies in a transporter accident).
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
