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

^But the Federation had no right to move them in the first place. They weren't Federation members. They colonised the world before the Federation was founded. So the Ba'ku had first claim to the then unihabiated planet. It doesn't matter that the planet would later fall within Federation space, there are no doubt many inhabiated worlds within the region of space claimed by the Federation that aren't members, can the Federation just swoop onto an inhabiated planet and take what they want? Sounds something more like what the Romulans or Cardassians would do.
