The Prime Directive is rather ambiguous but what it comes down to is, do screw around with pre-warp civilizations and don't interfere in anyone's internal affairs.

So if they're warp capable, you get all the help you need in case of medical crisis or natural disaster... if not, you're screwed.
Well, I know Beverly gave Picard and earful on a couple occasions about this. Don't have the episodes at my fingertips.
So did Pulaski in season 2's Pen Pals when they were discussing the ramifications of the PD and diseases came up. I'd have to agree with them.

There are situations which you shouldn't involve yourself, but to say just because there are some, you shouldn't get involved in any, is kinda absurd.
Yup. All the more reason Archer should have helped.
We have to learn again that science without contact with experiments is an enterprise which is likely to go completely astray into imaginary conjecture.
