Re: Harrison in the Prime Universe
Picard was discussing the reasoning behind the UFP's first contact protocols. They didn't want disasters like what happened with the Klingons. A need to understand the people being contacted before official contact was made to insure there were no cultural misunderstandings. That pretty much fits "Broken Bow" to a T. Archer's ignorance of Klingon culture set Human/Klingon relations ( and by extension UFP/Klingon relations) off on the wrong foot and down the disaster path.
