    Yeah, they lucked out with their refugee status.

    Also, no one ever ASKED THEM their opinion the medicine issue.

    The movie unravels rather quickly if someone asks them about it and they have no problem with it.

    Same reason they didn't just fly the eagles to Mount Doom in the Lord of the Rings.

    Poorly paraphrasing a quote I saw once by J.R.R. Tolkien; "Yes. They could have flown the eagles there in the first book, but then their adventure would have been quite short and there would be no point in reading or writing the story."

    In a finely-crafted cosmos... of my own making.
    Solution: don't invent the Eagles in the first place.

    Or throw in a line.

    "The Eagles won't approach the Ring lest it destroy them. I have spoken to them and blah-blah."

    And the Baku never ASKED THE GALAXY if the people in the galaxy would like to share in the magic particles.

    Selfish bastards.

    At star's end.
    'slippery-slope' is a logical fallacy.
    An unique immortality drug is not dime a dozen dilithium.
    The measures taken to obtain an unique immortality drug are not the measures taken to obtain dime a dozen dilithium.
    That former does not imply the latter.
