"Friday's Child" (32) Pre-warp culture offered aid because the Klingons also want it. Prime Directive is not even referred to even though it should apply.

"A Private Little War" (45) referred to and then discarded due to interference by the Klingons
Both of these might be case where contact was initially made prior to the Prime Directive as a Starfleet policy, and so continued contact was "grandfathered" in.

"For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky" (65) Again the Prime Directive should come up but doesn't
Even through traveling slower than light, the ship in that episdode was interstellar.

"The Cloud Minders" (74) Prime Directive? We need that Zenite to stop a plague so forget that noise.
Interesting in that episode, the planet's leader told Kirk that Federation order couldn't override a Federation members governments decisions.
