Earl Grey 30: Who Watches the Justice

The Prime Directive.

One of the threads that is common to all Star Trek series is how we deal with the various species we encounter. Star Trek tried to address this through the Prime Directive, a rule that has served as the basis for countless stories over the years. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Phillip Gilfus, Darren Moser, and Daniel Proulx discuss how Starfleet's General Order 1 is handled on The Next Generation. From "Justice" to "Who Watches the Watchers," we explore what works and what doesn't. Do we agree with the actions of the characters in these episodes? Is it consistent with how the Prime Directive is normally portrayed? Join us and see if you agree.
