How's this much more different the the government claiming imminent domain on all land around a river so they can dam it and supply power to thousands if not millions? I agree they didn't think the numbers through, but that's relatively minor.
Well for one there is supposed to be some kind of legal proceeding the government has to go through first unless they already made an agreement with the owner of the property in question. Whereas in this case the guy living on the moon didn't seem to have known about the Bajoran government's plans for the moon until the episode in question (unless I'm remembering it wrong).
Which kind of makes it look like they're being douchy about it.
