No Space Travel ? Edit
It's said in the episode that the Barzans either lack or cannot use space travel. If they don't have spaceflight, much less warp flight, why is the Federation negotiating with them? Shouldn't they be protected by the Prime Directive? Or maybe they were exposed to the interstellar community before the Prime Directive was implemented, or by someone other than the Federation? – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk).
