Sarah Gould joins Oren and Mike in discussing The Prime Directive, the most sacred law of Starfleet. They debate whether The Prime Directive is wise or moral. Oren questions the practicality of hiding all alien life, Mike describes ethics in anthropology, and Sarah vents about the ridiculousness of letting a culture die instead of interfering with it. All three of them ask, “what if there was a war?”Download Episode 52 Subscription Feed
