Re: You know what really irks me about "Insurrection"?
It is mentioned in the film that the Son'a didn't want to set up a colony inside the Briar Patch where they would be isolated. They always wanted to take over, extract the radiation and play the game with interstellar powers.
It's all in the film.
So is the the fact that they were expelled by the Ba'ku. Seems a nifty trick for a group of Amish.
