    TUVOK: So, your entire basis for judging him mentally unbalanced is his wish to commit suicide. I submit that is a faulty premise. In many cultures, suicide is acceptable, and in and of itself cannot be used as evidence of mental illness. :vulcan:

    TUVOK: Is it not true that on occasion the Continuum has executed Qs for certain crimes?

    TUVOK: Didn't their deaths create an interruption to the Continuum? :vulcan:

    Q2: Their crimes created the interruption. Their deaths ended it. I know where you're going with this, Lieutenant.

    Q2: And it's not going to work. Our society, like any other, must control its disruptive elements. An execution may be undesirable, I grant you that, but on some rare occasions it is necessary and warranted. And the decision to proceed is only made after great deliberation by the entire Continuum. You can not imagine the chaos that would be created if individuals like Q here, could choose between life and death. This is a matter of social order versus anarchy.

    Tuvok: I understand. And you find nothing contradictory in a society that outlaws suicide, but practices capital punishment?

    TUVOK: Just one other thing. Isn't it true that you yourself were once accused of being mentally unstable by the Continuum? Were you not disciplined for inappropriate behaviour?
