Re: TNG S3: The Offspring

The problem with this episode and its predecessor (The Measure of a Man) is that Datas and therefore Lals rights should never have been in question. Data was a Lt. Commander, not an acting officer. Starfleet had already granted him citizen status when he was allowed to enter the academy and it was reiterated every time he was promoted "with all the rights and privileges commensurate with that rank". The second that admiral Haftel attempted to violate those rights he should have been arrested and held in the brig until the Enterprise arrived at a starbase for a full hearing. It was good that Picard showed some backbone but it should have happened instantly and been more forceful. I keep reading about the "Bible", but it got walked all over way too often.
