Re: The Prime Directive
My understanding of the Klingon Civil War once Romulan involvement became appaerant because of the Federation blockade. (The Federation didn't take sides, it just prevented outside interferrence in an internal matter). Support for the Duras collapsed as the general perception amognest most Klingons is that the Romulans are without honour who attack you whilst they are supposed to your ally.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
