Star trek the Kobali Are they criminals?

Whenever they bring someone back to life they don't change their DNA until after they're brought back to life. So in this circumstance could this be a crime? Altering their bodies without permission it seems.

That's an interesting question (I had not seen the episode).

The Memory Alpha article doesn't really mention much about revived people having a problem with the revival, and notes that a lot of the earlier existence is wiped in the process (I don't know if that's a bug, or a feature). See https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Kobali

I also looked at Memory Beta, which covers licensed written works and games, which technically aren't canon but can inform canon (such as writer David Alan Mack's character, Keyla Detmer, ending up on the live action show Star Trek: Discovery). Apparently in the Star Trek Online mission Dust to Dust, "Captain Harry Kim vowed to force the Kobali to make their revivals a choice, not against their will." See https://memory-beta.fandom.com/wiki/Kobali

So neither of them frame it as a crime although part of that is how the articles are written and part is likely due to the framing of the Kobali's actions as being a form of reproduction.

I also checked Memory Gamma and ST Expanded which are both devoted to fan fiction to see if the idea had been picked up even though it would 100% not be canon. Neither of those sites had a page dedicated to Kobali, and they both had rather limited references to the species. But note: those are not the only places to find fan fic. Other possibilities include TrekBBS.com, Fanfiction.net, and AdAstraFanFic.com.

This concept could make for a decent fan fiction story.
