I still think it would have been better if they had went with the planet having a valuable ore that was the basis of Federation medical technology. Which was running out due to the Feds being cut off from the worlds that supply it and high casualties.
eh, I still think that makes the decision to move them too easy.
Anything related to medical needs that benefit billions during a war is going to take precedence.
If it was only a small advantage like a strategically-located base, or some kind of resource to build certain weapons or something, then you could just sit back and say "not a big deal either way, let's just enjoy the show."
As it is, at the "happy ending" all I can think of are the billions that won't get treatment, and the Son'a that are going to die.
