Czenite? Surely it was Zenite, plain and simple?
You can lump in Turkana IV to this list. Still a ruined waste during TNG first season. The Federation turned their back and did nothing to help those poor people. And they were Federation citizens!
^ No, Turkana IV declared independence and seceded from the Federation.
...Which put an end to the Federation-era misery of rape gangs and whatnot.
Really, the timeline of "Legacy" suggests the Cadres were a vast improvement over Federation rule.
Maybe not exactly, but they clearly wanted to be left alone
Captain's log, supplemental. We are in orbit above Turkana Four, an Earth colony that severed relations with the Federation nearly fifteen years ago.
No, a small number of thugs basically kidnapped an entire colony of people, and the Federation let them do it.
Also a change in gravitational potential energy when beaming from low altitude to high or vice versa.
Yes, the transporter can routinely compensate for changes in potential and kinetic energy.
And angular momentum and the like. If the device also violates conservation of energy and mass, it's hardly an offense worth mentioning.
We hear how it happened: there was anarchy under UFP rule, fifteen years before the secession, and the Cadres arose to meet the challenge, offering their services to the government and then becoming the government. Worf thinks the place is still lawless, but his information is fifteen years out of date, based on stories from Tasha Yar who left around when the colony seceded. If anything, the place has too much law, two sets of it with two sets of enforcers - perhaps a commentary on commercial security businesses run amok.
