Re: TNG S5: The First Duty

Frankly, I'm annoyed that Locarno gets even a little redemption in Wesley's unchallenged comment that Locarno "did what he said he'd do all along." Sure, Locarno made an "impassioned plea" so the others could stay, but he did that at absolutely zero risk to himself, and on the contrary, to quite a bit of personal gain. Either they all got kicked out (Locarno included) or just Locarno gets kicked out. Either way Locarno leaves Starfleet. All he really did was look to the future and see that burning bridges with the team mates he cajoled into break the rules wouldn't get him anything, while going through the motions of heroism would (both with the team, and potentially with others he tells the story to in the future). It was smart and methodically manipulative, but by no means redeeming.
