Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix

Are you arguing that an individual has no rights in the UFP?

And you have no basis in canon to refute my claims. But conjecture from what limited amount of the UFP Legal system we have seen would at least seem to support than an individual has the rights of freedom and self-determination.

How about this line from BOBW

Picard: Impossible. My culture is based on freedom and self-determination.

So wasn't Tuvix exercsing his right of self-determination?

What about "Measure of Man" in part that was about does Data have the right of self-determination.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
