Subject: Star Trek
Just a quick Note. The members of Star Fleet are governed by the Prime
Directive. Followers of the "Next Generation" and Patrick Stewart will no
doubt remember that the P.D. has been violated--most recently by Pual Sorvino
as a scientist studying a culture in the "early stages of development" who
were living on a dying planet. Sorvino did "trick" the crew into preserving
this culture, but ultimately Picard seemed to approve the act. Now--what all of
this has to do with Shakespeare studies is another question entirely.
