When did Kirk really violate the PD? Maybe with Vaal and Landru, but that's a maybe.
I really don't think either of those qualify as Prime Directive violations(at least by 23rd century standards). Both posed dangers to orbital traffic, Kirk tried to leave when it became obvious they weren't welcomed on Gamma Trianguli VI yet was stopped by Vaal.

Did any of the 24th century shows put their crews in a similar situation?
Just to clairify my last post, I didn't think they were violations. I've heard many times in the past that Kirk was such a rule breaker, but I don' t see any evidence of it regarding the PD.
I'll use this as an opportunity to point out the great follow up DC Comics did to "The Apple" called The Return of the Serpent (issues #43-45, first run). In the three parter Kirk and Company return to Gamma Trianguli VI twenty years later.
