^ A good boss generally adheres to the rules/principles which have placed him in his position. That's a given. But a good boss also knows when to break said rules. (This is possibly a mere reiteration of your statement). But entertainment is important too. I doubt most of us watch Trek purely for moral guidance. Though, undoubtedly, most of us have been affected by the high morals of the Federation and occasionally apply some of the Federation ethos to our own personal worldview.
