EDIT: TNG: "Angel One" alleged that the Prime Directive doesn't apply to civilians, but I've always found that an odd interpretation.
Not really seeing as the Prime Directive was always came off as a Starfleet Regulation, it didn't seem like a Federation law or anything.

Nikolai Rozhenko was not active duty Starfleet, but former Starfleet (being an Academy ex-cadet). So it could be argued that the Prime Directive applies to him.
Why, he isn't Starfleet anymore.

Same goes for Merik, who was also an Academy dropout.
Okay why does everyone think Merik violated the Prime Directive, from what I remember he seemed to be following it even giving into the natives desire to kill his crew to keep any outside interference from showing up.

I can definitely see the Federation attempting to apply the PD to both of those men, since they were at one point associated with Starfleet. You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave...
Why they're not a fascist dictator ship that was the TOS Klingons.
