- After destroying the natives' whole economy, social order, and way of life (forced to or not), Kirk is incredibly cavalier and insouciant about it. "Yeah, you've just lost your eternal youth so you'll start aging now, and your community is too small to survive as a viable gene pool, and you have no idea how much hard labor is ahead of you as subsistance farmers, but you're going to like it soon." This was Star Trek's version of "We had to pass the plan so you could see what's in it."
Kirk doesn't concern himself with paperwork and relief efforts.. someone on the ship would be assembling Starter Kits for Civilization and beaming them down to the settlement.

"Damnit Spock. God damnit!" Kirk ST:V
