Do I only know of this event? Or other future events? Like should I tell Kirk to head over to Ceti Alpha 5 for a quick nosey? Or warn Marcus not to board the Grissom? Or use the Enterprise to go back in time and beam some whale up in advance of the probe's arrival?
Wouldn't you be breaching the Prime Directive though in some way? These were society changing level events - surely the timeline has to unravel on it's on?
