I'd rather them die heroically than be shuffled off to have babies.
What's wrong with people wanting to have children? Data wanted a child in this episode and you just called it "Classic episode that stands with the best the franchise as a whole has ever produced."

Every character is a tool to tell a story. They aren't real people.
These characters, while undoubtably not real are meant to elicit a real emotional response from it's viewers, especially in stories like this. If everyone who watched it only saw them as tools, why should they get emotionally involved? There's more to creating effective characters than simply writing them off as a tools.
