Trek Geeks #104: My Directive Is Prime


It’s the most far-reaching concept in all of Star Trek–Starfleet’s Prime Directive of non-interference in other cultures!

Every crew has had to contend with it in some form and, at times, even defy this guiding principle. In this week’s episode, Dan and Bill will discuss some of the finer points of the Prime Directive and how it has impacted the Star Trek Universe!

Plus, they’ll discuss some of their favorite Prime Directive episodes–and some of their answers may surprise you!

But wait–there’s more!  There’s an update on the Cosplay for Good campaign to raise money for the Nevada SPCA–and find out how YOU can help the adoptable dogs, cats, and other animals at Las Vegas’ largest no-kill animal shelter.

Then, there’s news about Discovery toys and we’ll observe the 35th Anniversary of the best Star Trek movie ever!

Episode 104 of  Your Independent Star Trek Podcast is here and we hope you enjoy it!
