    The director of the CIA is allowed to order their agents to eliminate threats.

    The director of Starfleet Security probably has similar abilities.

    A Romulan spy, who had become the head of Starfleet Security, mind melded an ancient apocalyptic message that breaks organic minds into her brain.

    No jury in the galaxy will convict her.

    Especially if she starts face-acting at them.

    If Scotty can get away murdering 4 prostitutes under the influence of a space energy being, Jurati can get away with murdering at least 1 man under the influence of a mind meld.

    There is that precedent. And probably hundreds of other cases across the Orion Arm that we don't know of.

    Think about it. Redjac, that creature from "Day of the Dove" that lived on hate, Organian possession...

    Picard murdered himself in Time Squared and he did it to save the ship, here Jurati had all of organic life on the line. Much higher stakes

    They should do a Times Cubed where a third Picard shows up and convince the 1st Picard that killing the 2nd Picard was a failure of imagination

    Same here and at times she over acts. By the end of the season though, she improved and I didn't mind her as much.

    Love her! love her performance! I do agree that there should be an onscreen reckoning of Maddox's murder. I don't think she should face legal consequences...but she should face a crisis of conscience for sure...(I realize that she has somewhat...but it should be ongoing for awhile. It shouldn't be easy for a good person to shrug that off.)

    I won't lie, when Alison was cast, I kept wondering what alien she'd play because of her spherical face.

    she’s a murderer. She killed the guy because she was scared. I wonder if Android Picard will get her some psychiatric help.

    With a little help from a mind meld.

    Agreed. She looks wired when she crying or smiling.

    Actually they never said the mind meld caused her to murder. Mind melds have never had the power to make people something they aren't. Supposedly what she saw made her murder. That's not a real excuse. By this time in earths future they have already fought off potential extinction from the borg and Dominion. If her fear made her murder I would not want to be the guy around her that she believes might inadvertently cause some kind of threat. Really though what did killing Maddox accomplish? Nothing.

    For the Zhat Vash he was the Ground Zero for the Admonition and the "father" of the Destroyer. Do the the math.

    Overall I think Soji had a lot more issues than Jurati. I mean Jurati murdered one guy while trying to save all organic life.

    Soji in her right mind pointed extinction at every organic being. Also she allowed Picard to get locked up and then tried to ease her own guilt about it.

    And she pushed Picard nearly killing him after he told her the Pizza was ready

    Two episodes of TOS disprove that. When imprisoned, Spock uses a mind-meld to manipulate a guard into opening a door and freeing him and Kirk in "A Taste of Armageddon". Then, in "The Omega Glory", Spock uses a remote mind-meld/link to get a woman to reach for a communicator to contact the Enterprise.

    I could probably throw "By Any Other Name" into the mix too, for good measure, but I won't. When Spock attempts to to get Kelinda to free them it doesn't work. So it's not 100%.

    But Oh in PIC is older than Spock in TOS, less ethical, and has probably had a lot more time to perfect her technique.
