Re: Reunification - makes no sense?

^I believe the PD, in addition to non-interference with pre-warp civilizations, also applied to not interfering in the internal affairs of other worlds, as Picard says to Gowron when Starfleet and the Federation refuse to take sides in the Klingon Civil War. However, that didn't stop him from organizing a Starfleet blockade to prevent the Romulans from resupplying the Duras sisters' forces. So there appear to be fine distinctions when it comes to interference in other cultures. -- RR
