Re: OTHER Starship Captains - Symbolism, Foreshadowing & Plot Devices

This week I was reading a Best of Peter David TREK reprint comic which contained a three-part adventure co-written by Billy Mumy. It's a fairly obvious homage to some of the LOST IN SPACE characters, though here they are mostly blue-skinned aliens. At a key moment they express shock and disbelief at Kirk and the ENTERPRISE crew when Kirk reluctantly explains the Prime Directive on occasion prevents entire world populations from being saved by themselves....
Charon would likely be the best case of this, even if they had reached it time. And of course the PRIVATE LITTLE WAR planet.....
