Re: Kirk, the PD, "The Omega Glory" and "Miri"
Tracey had already "contaminated" the planet by taking sides with the Comms and using phasers as well as arming the Comms with the phasers he took from Kirk's party. Advanced tech had already been introduced. Kirk "explaining" the meaning of the Yangs' document hardly complicates matters.
Well said. Phasers in the hands of Khoms (and the Yangs who witnessed the incredible sight of "fireboxes" at work) alters the culture more than someone reading a native document, simply reiterating its meaning.
