Re: VOY S5: Counterpoint

Not only was Janeway able to to help the space refugees escape, but she was also allowed to leave after her actions were discovered, along with her crew and her ship, due to Kashyk's "excuse" of not wanting what happened to be on his service record.

So, in the end, may be Kashyk kept his part of the deal... the only way he could.

Re: DS9 S7: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

@Aldo Johnson:

* "If the code you live by, your morality, your democracy, can be so conveniently put aside whenever you think it's dangerous, then why live by that code anyway? Might as well just choose any moral that fits what's happening this month, this week, this day."

- It's no different than killing. It is illegal and immoral, yet allowed in war and in self-defense situations. As with every thing else in life, different circumstances dictate different ways of doing things.

* "Or put it another way; officially the Soviets do not have a policy of state-sanctioned assassination. Yet I'm sure the GRU/ KGB "allowed" people to die."

- I find it interesting that use Soviets/KGB as an example. Are you from Russia? Because I am from the USA, and if I was trying to make your point, I would have used USA/CIA, and the sentence would still be true.

* "Now replace 'the Soviets' with 'the Federation' and 'GRU/ KGB' with 'Section 31' Any Difference?"

- I will replace "Soviets" with "USA", and "KGB" with "CIA" as indicated earlier. Any difference? No.
Ok, replace them with Federation/Section 31. Any difference? Probably, but it doesn't matter either way.

* "When they did it, the Soviet was an 'evil Empire' What does that make the Federation?"

- They were an "evil empire" because someone from another empire with a similar track record decided to label them as such. That's the only reason, and it is only a label. Someone might label the Dominion or the federation as an evil empire as well, that doesn't mean that either is actually an evil empire.

Re: DS9 S7: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

@Jayrus:
I don't know if Section 31 won the war not. I don't know about all their operations and what kind of advice, input, and information they provided to Starfleet/Starfleet Intelligence during the war. There could be an entire parallel series just for Section 31 and their role during the war that we don't know about from watching DS9. But I do know this: Tactics and methods identical to those used by Section 31 helped win the war. The example I can think of right now is what took place in "In the Pale Moon Light", which caused the Romulans to join the war on the Dominion. It doesn't matter who did the dirty work, the dirty work helped win the war.
None of that bothers me, what bothers me is that I don't recall seeing any serious and genuine effort by the Federation on this show to seek peace with the Dominion before the war started and during the early stages of the war, before things get out of control.

Re: DS9 S7: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

I don't know what's worse... Bashir's hard-ons and constant drooling over a certain female character on the show (in my opinion, the worst female character on the show), or his display of naivety and emotionalism every time he opens his mouth to bitch about someone "violating the principles we are all sworn to protect".

Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

I agree with eastwest101, and would like to add that this is nothing more than an anti-Vulcan episode. The DS9 crew, especially Sisko, behaved like a bunch of inferior idiots who suffer from a superiority complex.

Re: DS9 S3: Explorers

Did Bajorans even have rocket technology to put in space a mechanically operated sail ship that apparently uses 18th-century style nautical navigation instruments?

Re: ENT S3: Damage

This is my first time to comment here. I didn't understand why stealing the warp core was a big deal, aside from the fact that stealing is wrong.

Stealing the warp core was presented in a way that made it seem fatal to the crew of the alien ship, or that it will cause them to be stranded in space for three years.

Why couldn't Enterprise or Star Fleet find the ship at a later time and give them a new warp coil to replace the one they took? It seems pretty easy to track ships in Star Trek in general, especially, for example, if the heading and destination are known (just ask them about it and tell them we will bring you back the warp coil), or if the alien ship can transmit a specific signal that allows them to be found by Enterprise or Star Fleet.
