Firstly, let me say how much I love this debate. It exists because Starfleet has been shown to be so diverse. Different captains make different choices, and in the end, we have what we have today.

Picard will always be Picard, the optimist, pacifist, and idealist that we all aspire to. We may not make the same compromises as Sisko, but we will make some, simply because we are mortal, and we struggle to make the best choice for the best outcomes.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Prime Directive is an ideal we all as Starfleet officers should and must aspire to. But it has its time and place, because ultimately, it is the safety of the greater good that must upheld.

There will be exceptions, and exceptions to the exceptions, and many many more angry voices for all sides. That's just our opinion, and how we react when put in that situation.

What there should be however, is an option to skip certain missions we find distasteful! That would be a nice feature when planning story progression.
