    Freedom without responsibility leads to destruction. The Federation is a (mostly) enlightened society where people are mature enough to handle their freedom responsibly (as opposed to us 21st century humans, but that's a discussion more suited for TNZ).

    No, it is explicitly established that the Mars Synths were hijacked by the Zhat Vash agent operating within Starfleet Security under the alias Oh.
