I used to think he made a mistake but it occurs to me this is a slippery-slope as while I might be okay with the Federation stealing medicine, I'm not okay with them stealing dilithium--which would be something they could justify with the exact same set of rules.
How much different is the Baku from Avatar?
For me, I think the Federation should probably just stick with analyzing the magic cloud--and maybe asking if they could use another continent as a hospital.
'slippery-slope' is a logical fallacy.
An unique immortality drug is not dime a dozen dilithium.
The measures taken to obtain an unique immortality drug are not the measures taken to obtain dime a dozen dilithium.
That former does not imply the latter.
