Re: Kirk and the Prime Directive.

Well I never said that there should have been NO contact between 1701 and 1701-D, just to have a show there. Gangster Planet could have been petitioning to join the Federation looking to deliver their 'piece of the action', or even already be a member and the "Kirk incident" a footnote in their history not crucial the story but as background flavor. Hell, I could have seen them blaming Kirk for Yar's jacked up planet.

Still, there could be plenty of reasons to justify minimal contact since, including scarcity of starfleet resources, the distance from the Federation, hostility/antipathy from the natives, etc.
