The prime directive is probably the worst idea conjured up by the creator of star trek.

The problem was that it seemed to exist mainly to show how stupid it was if applied literally in all situations. I can recall one episode off the top of my head from The Next Generation where it was followed and it made sense to follow it.


Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. -- Thomas Jefferson

We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat
