Re: TNG S6: Second Chances

Just finished watching this episode again, and one thing that hasn't been mentioned yet has always bothered me. In the episode Will Riker says that he received a promotion because of his acts of valor during the mission. Up until the moment of the transporter incident, they were the same person, and the mission had been completed, so shouldn't Tom receive the EXACT same promotion that Will got since he performed the same acts of valor, plus maybe a bonus or commendation for being marooned for 8 years?

It just seems like Tom is getting a really raw deal from Starfleet: "Oh by the way, we gave a promotion to your clone for the acts of valor that you both performed. You say you were marooned for 8 years alone? Just be thankful we're letting you keep your commission, Lieutenant; If Picard hadn't pulled some strings, you wouldn't even be assigned ship duty!"

Oh well, at least they didn't kill him off completely, or (perhaps) worse - leave him stranded alone on the planet for another 8 years.
