The Things that we Do in the Dark will always come to light.
If Principles are all we have what happens when we have to compromise them.

As a child you grew up dreaming of the Star, you knew that out there somewhere in the great expanse of space there were answers to the great questions.
Who are you, where did you come from, what is the meaning of all of this?
20 years ago your whole life changed. Taken as a child by Orion Slavers, you were rescued from a terrible existence by the Captain of the Federation Starship Klondike. Suddenly you were part of a bigger world, a world so expansive it was almost too much. Your story is unique, your path your own, but still not so different than the rest of your crew.
Now you sit on the bridge of a ship of your own, surrounded by a crew of co-workers and friends, each with a story, each with a dream, each with a desire to find their answers in the stars. Though she may be a new ship. You are now the Captain of the USS Klondike, NCC 1745, your mission to seek out strange new worlds and boldly go where no one has gone before.
Your travels have brought you to a previously undiscovered planet. Though they have developed space flight, they are not a warp capable civilization. This means that General Order 1, must dictate your response.
However, the computer has picked up a problem. The planets core is unstable, and soon it will go critical. The Planets inhabitants are looking to the stars of salvation. They have the knowledge, and the desire, but lack the technology to save themselves. In the midst of this crisis, what can you do? What should you do?
Do you leave them to die? Do you save them and risk violating the Prime Directive? Do you get involved in the planet's problems. You and your crew are here now, and you have choices to make. In this situation, there is no good option. Whatever, you choose you will have to live with it.
