Well, that's it then.

Anyone else get the feeling that any uncertainty about Bacchus' status as a (proper) planet of Sol is about to be resolved in much the same way that Pluto's was in the post-Voyager Trek novels: by having the Borg the Blight eat it?
That wasn't a crash, it was an injection attack.

All I see this as is a distraction and destruction of evidence. There's better ways to set off a von Neumann effect.

Could be either, or both. I think there are more effective ways to destroy evidence as well.

Yup, there are plenty of uninhabited systems with planets that you can crash a ship into, or just teraport it into the innards of a star or do a deliberate terasplat

In which case, the reasons to do it on the edge of Sol system are, 1, to be seen doing it ("Oh, well they're dead now, we can stop investigating/chasing them" - pff, as if), or, 2, acquiring a staging site on the edge of Sol system.
