>I think i will go with others in the case of admiral dougherty who conspired with the soná and the big thing he did was agreeing to let ru'afo have his ships attack the Enterprise.


He's another one who sort of tried to change course at the last minute, though with less dramatic success than Ransom.


Falor was a prosperous merchant who went on a journey to gain greater awareness: Through storms he crossed the Voroth Sea/ To reach the clouded shores of Raal/ Where old T’Para offered truth./ He traveled through the windswept hills/ And crossed the barren Fire Plains/ To find the silent monks of Kir./ Still unfulfilled, he journeyed home/ Told stories of the lessons learned/ And gained true wisdom by the giving. – Falor’s Journey, “Innocence”

Ransom did the right thing in the end, but he didn't wake up until everything fell apart.


Think of how Janeway from the start, could've saved her crew 7 years of Delta Quadrant brand grief by taking the easy way out but chose not to.Or how Riker put real effort into proving Data, one of his closest friends was an object, just to give him an escape route.Or Kirk taking a punch to the soul by letting Edith Keeler get run over. Compared to stuff like that, Ransom is pretty un-starfleet. Sacrifice comes with uniform, Ransom new that going in.

Definitely Valeris. She betrayed Spock and prevented the Ferderation and The Klingon Empire from becoming allies sooner than what they did.

I just rewatched Equinox and don't judge Ransom as harshly. He made bad judgments, killed innocents, but doesn't seem like a hardened villain like Tracey or Eddington. He got spineless and put survival ahead of ethics but he did seem to hate himself for that unlike his first who never quit justifying himself.

Being less of a hardened villain and just a bit stupid in the face of disaster was no excuse and him realising this too late gets him no brownie points from me.


He failed not just as a captain but as a human being as well.


I dont see genocide as a bit of a mistake in the face of adversity.


He chose the wrong sacrifice to make.


"Let me see if Ive got this straight. You're risking the ship, the crew, and the mission on the assumptions that Helkara and Leishman are engineering geniuses, Tharp is a piloting savant, our transporter chief can work miracles, and the Breen are unwilling to sacrifice themselves in a kamikaze attack?" "Yup." "Damn I LOVE this job."
