Re: ultimate reasoning behind prime directive ?

Ideally, the Prime Directive simply prohits Starfleet crews from interfering in the development of less advanced civilizations--to allow them to join the galactic community on their own terms. But like many policies, there are times when it becomes problematic.

From a dramatic story telling viewpoint, it's great for creating moral dilemmas for our heroes.
