Re: ultimate reasoning behind prime directive ?

I dunno, every Starfleet captain's broken it whenever it suits them without any consequences. There are times I think the Prime Directive is nothing more than a vaguely written dogma meant to give the Federation moral justification for whatever they chose to do or not to do.

Saying you can't interfere with a natural disaster on a planet because you don't know what the consequences could be, is like saying you shouldn't save the life of a pregnant woman being beaten to death because that kid might grow up to be Hitler. You can't control the future, but you can control what you do with your present.
