HoloTrek: Orgs: UFP: Prime Directive

As the right of each sentient species to live in accordance with its normal cultural evolution is considered sacred, no Starfleet personnel may interfere with the healthy development of alien life and culture. Such interference includes the introduction of superior knowledge, strength, or technology to a world whose society is incapable of handling such advantages wisely. Starfleet personnel may not violate this Prime Directive even to save their own lives and/or their ship, unless they are acting to right an earlier violation of an accidental contamination of said culture. This Directive takes Precedence over any and all other considerations, and carries with it the highest moral obligation.
