Re: Very iffy copy of 9 minute trailer

Well, even in the Prime timeline of the 23rd Century the Prime Directive was violated more times than the legal blood-alcohol limit on prom night. Kirk repeatedly came up with myriad, flimsy excuses to save a primitive, pre-warp society from itself or some powerful computer that was unjustly ruling over it all in the name of the greater good or doing what he felt was morally right.

I'd be surprised if Starfleet Command itself signed off on such a mission in violation of its own most sacred rule, but this is a timeline that's changed since 2233 and the Starfleet of *this* 2259 might do a few things a little differently than the one we saw in the Prime TOS era.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
