I've just rewatched the movie on Netflix and finally, Admiral I-almost-died-like-in-James-Bond said it would take 10 years to Son'a to rejuvenate.....in fact it remains bullshit. At this stage, they would have hardly able to play bingo. And of course....GEORDI'S EYES.
Oh, and I didn't catch that Ba'ku patriarch was named Sojef. What a poor brainstorm job!
