Re: what if Kirk called the Metrons out on their hypocrisy?

^But the burden of proof is being applied backward. As I said, the default expectation should be that an alien species would not think or act like humans, not that it would.

And as I've said, I think the very fact that the Metrons responded to the intrusion on their space in the odd, elaborate way that they did is more than sufficient evidence that they don't do things the same way a typical human government would.
