if we're not limited by what's on film and can just make stuff up,why not argue that the Baku "peaceful Luddite" thing was a ruse and that they were secretly a guild of assassins?
This would explain the plot hole of the Baku being able to exile the Sona and their technology.
I got the impression that the Son'a left on their own.

nope, they were exiled when their attempt to take over failed.

which means we have TWO questions:

-how was their attempt to take over "thwarted" by Luddite pacifists

-how do a bunch of Luddite pacifists exile an advanced techology-embracing group?


seriously, NO ONE in the film production spotted this glaring flaw and said, "uh guys, this makes no sense and creates more problems than it solves?"
