I find the invocation of the prime directive in this episode DISGUSTING.
And this comes from someone who likes Dear doctor.
In dear doctor, they refuse to cure a disease, afflicting one sapient race, so another sapient race on the planet can come into its own.
If worfs Foster Brother handt have interfered in this episode... A sentient race would have died out to achieve ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
At least letting people fight their own wars can help give them a history, a culture...
Letting The people overthrow a dictator and establish a democracy, gives tehm a since of accomplishment, a pride to pass on to their heirs.
But this whats it accomplish other then communicate an abstract?
