Mission Summary

The USS Vesta fresh from refit heads out to the Cardassian border, but however along the way, the crew picks up strange transmissions from a pre-warp civilization talking about possible alien contact. Arriving, and taking care to conceal their scanning, the crew discovers that the planet has had outside influence from a nearby alien species that has been toying with them. The crew has to debate the meaning of the Prime Directive as they deal with the fact that while their mandate prevents interference, can they push that on another species? And if they do, would they be violating the Prime Directive themselves by interfering with the aliens who have already interfered.
