Re: Did Picard make the right decision with the Son'a/Baku

the "no due process" argument is of course a smoke screen. The reason they didn't approach them initially is because it was thought the Baku were primitives, and pre-space contact.

Once it was clear they weren't, it was only because of poor writing that negotiations for compensation and removal didn't begin. ( and because they wanted to avoid a "baku say no" scenario.)
And those arguing against removal aren't really going to change positions if the Federation had approached the Baku and been blunt about evoking eminent domain.
"why oh why didn't I take the blue pill?"
