Re: The Prime Directive
So it was arrogent then?
I think so.
You're invading their territory and walking among them without consent or compensation of any kind in the name of exploration. The Federation is essentially deciding what is good for them.
The Federation comes across as arrogant a good portion of the time in the 24th century.
