Re: Episode of the Week: 3x18 "Allegiance"

I would disagree with the assessment that Picard's treatment of the aliens is unethical, especially considering he let them go right after. You don't gain somebody's respect by letting them walk all over you with impunity then begging them not to, you have to defend yourself and show them that there are limits to what you will accept. That way they'll see you more as equals and interact with you in a more mutual manner.

Tolerating other's beliefs does not mean ignoring it when their actions infringe on your rights.
