Star Trek: Insurrection
Assuming the only way to share the youthful rays is by removing the Ba’ku, is it right to remove a small number of people so that many more will have the opportunity of living forever? Can you think of any other ways they could share the planet’s resource? Can you think of similar examples where a few people have been asked to move for the good of many in our world?
When Captain Picard asks Ba’ku citizen Anij (Donna Murphy) why she isn’t married after 300 years, she says, “Why rush?” If you were given the opportunity to live forever, would you accept it? What would be the best and worse part of living forever? How would being able to live forever change your feelings of needing to complete things in your life?
