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

How often would civilians be on the frontier, away from the Federation's core worlds, or just away from warp-capable civilization in general? Missionaries from the Federation would probably open up shop on Cardassian, Klingon, or even Ferengi worlds before bothering with primitives, wouldn't they? Else the missionaries would have to explain how they're not gods, even though they appeared miraculously from thin air and even though they command other god-like powers, they're just representing for God. Seems like a headache for the missionaries, and counter-productive as far spreading the Good Word is concerned. Unless it isn't a sin to pretend to be the Messiah to primitives....
