Re: Obvious plot hole at the beginning
Reboot. The only canon that's applicable here is the previous movie, which said nothing about the prime directive.
Not a reboot, an alternate timeline. Everything that came before ST09 is still canon, for whatever that's worth.
Just walk away, and there will be an end to the horror.
