a lot of the blame seems to be Gene's, with his obsession that no writer DARE show Kirk & Co., Starfleet, or the UFP in any kind of internal conflict.
Strangely enough, nearly all of Kirk's canonical teachers, Starfleet heroes and Academy colleagues went cuckoo, which kind of set a template which many authors emulated.

Prime Directive. He claims that no matter how bad the situation was, Starfleet would NEVER hold Kirk in disgrace, like that!
Actually, Kirk in disgrace was the one thing in "Prime Directive" that I had trouble believing. Despite the gripping story, I was still unconvinced that Starfleet would be so distrusting of him.
