I'm thinking about discourses of fact vs emotion in the case of a powerful man accused by three witnesses/victims of committing an horrific crime, decades earlier.
I refer, of course, to the classic Star Trek episode, "The Conscience of the King."
In this episode we learn that 20 years ago, the planet Tarsus IV suffered an apocalyptic famine. The governor, Kodos, decided to massacre 50% of the population for the benefit of the other 50%. He chose who should survive on eugenicist principles.
Somehow, from already being unspeakably wrong, things went even wronger and only nine people ended up surviving Tarsus IV, and Kodos wasn't one of them. Starfleet found a badly-burned body and declared him dead.
