It's the same thing as in DSC, with the visions of Control wiping ourt all organic life. Like, yeah, shocking, but anyone who's ever seen Terninator is gonna be all "oh, sure, of course".

Oh doesn’t come across to me like a stereotypical ‘hurka-durka-jihad’ fanatic. On the basis that she’s a rational, logical Vulcan (half-breed), her plan simply makes no sense.

I suppose you could argue that the risk to all known biological life outweighed the risk to the Romulan planets. But that still puts more credence to a possible future threat and less to a clear and immediate threat.

Something else I haven’t seen discussed is just when and how the synths became so prevalent. From just the few glimpses we saw, the synths sure seemed to be used as slaves, exactly as feared in “Measure of a Man”. I’m jumping to a conclusion here, but it seems as though they were able to make B4-level intelligence, and used that to boost their manpower to build the ships for the rescue armada. Which would mean Picard was complicit or directly responsible for their creation and treatment.
