Why couldn't the Son'a and the Ba'ku just have shared the planet? There were only 600 Ba'ku. Just leave them alone in their little village and let the Son'a immigrate to other parts of the planet. The Ba'ku could be alotted their own sovereign zone/country. Even with billions of Son'a immigrants it might be hundreds of years before any contact or conflict might be made between the two. I don't believe this possibility is ever discussed in the film even though it's the most obvious solution to the conflict. Still, I like the film better than First Contact (don't hate me) and Nemesis. It isn't overly dark nor does it inundate the viewer with the show' s mythology. My biggest problem with INS is the above mentioned plot hole and the fact that we don't get to know more of the Ba'ku.
