Just for the heck of it, from the Star Trek Writers/Directors Guide, third revision, April 17, 1967:

TOS Writers Guide wrote:
GENERAL ORDER NUMBER ONE
The only Starfleet Order that concerns us in most stories. It is a wise but often troublesome rule which prohibits Starship interference with the normal development of alien life and alien societies. It can be disregarded when absolutely vital to the interests of the entire Earth Federation, but the Captain who does violate it had better be ready to present a sound defense of his actions.
