I had very mixed feelings about the way Janeway handled all of this. I think she would have been far better in just sending them on their way at the start of the ep, she seems to think of herself as some greater benevolent race who must always help every lame stray that comes her way. The attitude towards her in the briefing room should have told her that they were rather iffy anyway and I think she should just have been done with them there and then.

I was thinking about the episode "Day of Honour". The Cataati people, the ones who begged for supplies and then withheld the warp core, leaving Tom and B'Elanna to die in space. You know, I can't help feeling that by allowing Seven to give them the thorium generators, Janeway was allowing a potentially dangerous race a way back to power, to rebuild their civilisation and power-base again. It seems like they have little or no remorse since they were quite willing to sacrifice two helpless beings in the pursuit of their desires. Another example of breaking the Prime Directive?
