But in TNG's "Justice", Picard pretty much spoke Roddenberry's overriding philosophy on laws in general and the Prime Directive in particular when the good captain said that "no laws are absolute... even life itself is an exercise in exceptions".
Which is ironic as TNG was where the Prime Directive took a turn for the bizarre. It was used to justify letting entire cultures die and seemed to be working on the idea that there was some form a of predetermined goal.

I was NOT happy with what the Prime Directive became in TNG (neither was sfdebris) and don't get me started on the even more totally messed up way it was used in Voyager.
