The Prime Directive, as far as I recall, states that it is forbidden for members of Starfleet to interfere in the natural development of other species.


 


The benchmark for revealing themselves and the existance of other races and worlds being the natural advent on those worlds of warp technology.


 


Vulcans - warp capable, aware of the existance of many other worlds and species'


Humans - warp capable, aware of the existance of many other worlds and species'


 


SO, how the hell is a Vulcan/Human relationship a violation of the Prime Directive?!

thats not exactly correct.

Really? How so?


Do you remember Worfs human brother?


He violated the PD in many ways, but one of them was by letting himself get romanticly involved with one of the aliens he was there to monitor.

You say he was monitoring these aliens. I assume that means he was there in some official capacity. For whom was he working?


No matter. The post that mt original remark was a response to was addressing why Trip and T'pol couldn't marry. Another poster has addressed that situation very well.

So as a representative of the Federation on an official mission to observe a culture not yet ready for first contact, then yeah it was a violation, obviously, but only because he was officialy under the authority of The Federation. Had he not been working for the federation it becomes kind of a gray area.

>Hope you enjoy the rest of season four, and the other series' and films for that matter, but you won't like how the Trip/T'Pol story ends, it broke my bloody heart mate!!

Just finished Season 4, and as I mentioned on another post, the finale was like a stake in the heart. They had great chemestry, and the shows creaters ruined it.  It remineded me a lot of how JJ Abrams didn't allow Jack and Kate to end up together on Lost.


Someone on the other thread had the brilliant suggestion to read "The Good the Men Do", in which Trip (apparently) comes back. Gonna pick that one up (And the two paperbacks the go into the Romulan Wars) as I am not ready to say goodbye to the crew of the Enterprise.


Yes the show had it's weak points (as previously mentioned), but it also had some fantastic stories and personalities too.


Trip: "You did all that with a phase pistol?" Reed: "Your good at fixing things, I'm good at blowing them up!".
