Re: Genesis Question

^I don't think the proto-matter had anything to do with Genesis' being considered a failure. The experiment failed because the planet destroyed itself in a matter of weeks and wasn't suitable for colonization as originally intended. David's decision to use proto-matter was criticized by Saavik because it was a means of cutting corners to finish the project rather than finding another solution.
