  • A great example why the Prime Directive needs some corollaries and exceptions. Better to let a race die than to interfere? What is this, Animal Planet?

    Clearly the Prime Directive needs to be looked at hard if this is the result. Let people die rather than interfere and save them from certain death? Stupid, stupid, stupid. And how sad that Picard could have looked like the humanitarian and violated the prime directive to help people, rather than follow some dumb rule. Isn't the whol epoint of these directives to protect the sanctity of life? So you let them die? And you even sacrifice yourself and your ship to prevent interference? Idiotic! I'd want out of any such organization that had such scary, inflexible rules. Don't let your dogma run over your karma, Picard! Worf's brother is the only hero in this one. Ugh, so far Season 7 is weak. Sad notes to go out on. If I were in the Federation at this time, I'd want to secede.
