What about the right to non-interference of those other people?
7THSEALORD - Outstanding point!

And this is the never-spoken other-half of the PD which validates the PRIME DIRECTIVE, as JUST.

It is not enough to say the PD states that Starship Captains will not interfere with the natural evolution of a people or its culture,....

But in order for the PD to be VALID and JUST at all, its concept MUST provide to EVERYONE, EQUALLY THEIR RIGHT TO BE PROTECTED FROM KIRK,... especially when on their own planet no less!
