I don't follow what you mean about "Dear Doctor," there is no Prime Directive during the time of Enterprise.
Archer: "Someday my people are going to come up with some sort of a doctrine: something that tells us what we can and can't do out here should and shouldn't do. But until somebody tells me that they've drafted that directive, I'm going to have to remind myself every day that we didn't come out here to play God."

Just as bad.

not only that, but you had the irony of having characters who WERE playing God by deciding that one of the species was somehow destined to become the "superior" one or something, use the excuse of NOT wanting to play God to "justify" their actions.
