    I’ll go against the grain. Janeway was right. She corrected a horrible accident that killed two people while creating another.

      I guess we know how Janeway would respond to the trolly problem, then.

      I agree with what she did, but not how she did it. It was needlessly cruel.

      Fuck, it caught me by surprise and I couldn’t stop laughing and snorting for so long my partner came over to check if I was ok.

    Currently rewatching ds9, with all the feels for tuvix, it’s like the writers wanted higher stakes odo-kurzon

    Edit: same director. Different writers. One year difference (June to May)

    There’s the right way, the wrong away, and the Janeway.

    I mean…once they separated the patterns in the buffer they could have spun out neelix, tuvok and then tuvix too right?

      They never had the time. The orchids merged both of their patterns together into a singular pattern that was materialized. Patterns aren’t saved after they’re beamed to their destination. Cloning also wasn’t viable. That could only happen in very particular circumstances that they wouldn’t likely have been able to recreate. Even if they did it still ends up with a “Do I kill this one being to split back into two?”, you’ve just got two Tuvixs to choose from.

        The conditions are actually very easy to recreate, if you watch Lower Decks.

          I do watch Lower Decks and that is a pretty ridiculously unfair comparison considering Boimler’s duplication wasn’t a preplanned event and the Tuvix episode happened in Federation space with access to new knowledge in the years that have passed.

            Oh, I thought you meant the merger was hard to duplicate, because they were doing those left & right on the Voyager episode of Lower Decks.

          Sure. Which they would understand as both were created by sheer circumstance and accident in freak events, not a pre-planned event. I mean I’d also need to break temporal physics to go into the future, from Tuvix and Janeways perspective, to talk to Boimler considering that happened many years later.

              Literally no, it wasn’t. None of those were viable options that Janeway had available.

              I’ve wasted enough effort on you, thanks.

                  Ah yes, you mean all the moments that involves temporal agents who made it possible? Those times? When it was not in Voyagers power to travel so other tech from another person had to do it? Or that time where she went back in the past from stealing tech from the Klingons? Those times? Where Voyager was literally incapable of going back in time without assistance from the future. Those times?

                  So. Like I said. Travelling to the future was not viable.

                  You are being ridiculously disingenuous. I am not in the mood for this petty and vindictive nonsense. Leave it on reddit.
