On this week’s installment of All Good Things: A Star Trek Podcast, Barry and I delve into the early days of Starfleet General Order Number One, better known as the Prime Directive.
We focus on the development of the Prime Directive in Enterprise and then how it was used (or ignored) by Captain James T. Kirk in the original series.
Was TOS consistent in the use of the Prime Directive? And was Kirk justified in breaking it all those times? And should Enterprise have dealt more with why future crews would need General Order One?
