Re: Does Starfleet have to stop other powers First Contact?

IMO, the Prime Directive is just a first contact protocol for Starfleet crews. There may be instances in which a non-Starfleet party may also be held accountable for observing the Prime Directive, but I think that party would have to be affiliated with Starfleet in some way for that happen (such as a civilian expert assigned to a Starfleet mission).
