I thought Eleen's line in "Friday's Child" was a good example of an alien point of view. Maab is going to kill Eleen because she's carrying the child of the previous ruler, and Kirk interferes and saves her. Her response is "I was proud to obey the laws. Kill him first. He laid hands upon me. It is my right to see him die."
Whoa. Guess these people don't think like us.
