So now you're comparing people from a previous era to ignorant children. Thanks for confirming my original point.
So how would you treat them?
Like dirt? Like in TNG?
I certainly wouldn't coddle them.
The question was never about how they would be treated, but how their worldview would be respected. That you feel they would need to be re-educated shows it wouldn't be respected at all, and indeed many things about 17th century beliefs would not be compatible in our times. Nor would things about 20th century beliefs be combatible in the 24th century.
Everything Picard had to say to Offenhouse was dead on. Yeah, he could have said it nicer, but Offenhouse obviously didn't put much stake in niceness anyway.
