Re: Oh come on Spock, it sucks! Big Deal. (SPOILERS)

I understand the premise of the Prime Directive, but it seems to have a slight whiff of colonial attitudes about it. The idea that pre-warp societies are 'primitive' is certainly problematic. By creating this distinction Starfleet has essentially codified a hierarchy of needs based on a species' level of technological development.
