Re: Did Picard make the right decision with the Son'a/Baku
To borrow a quote from History.
"Well, when the President does it, that means that it is not illegal."
So just because someone/thing sings off on something, doesn't automatically make it legal.
If the orders came from the Federation Council, it means a majority of members likely voted to move the Ba'ku.
