There is no further development period without the interference.
Yeah, Spock's preaching to Kirk about violating the prime directive made no sense, because Spock was doing the same thing by stopping the volcano!!

Like Pike said, they were there to OBSERVE.
The Prime Directive in TOS days seemed a bit flexible.
I bet if there was dilithium on that planet the Federation would allow interference.

In TOS they were gun-ho about saving the Amerind planet even though it was pre-Warp. Spock went to a lot of trouble to save that planet even putting Kirk at risk.

It was ridiculous of Starfleet to send the 'Enterprise' to 'observe' unless Starfleet really wanted to 'observe' the captain and crew.

Agreed about the deception on Kirk's part being key to the disciplinary action against him. Had Kirk been up-front about Nibiru, he would've gotten a lesser punishment. If punished at all.
Except that is the case under the TOS Prime Directive.

Its sounds like they were using the evil TNG Prime Directive in this film.
