Episode 2-15, Pen Pals

Pen Pals is a very sweet episode, but it also shows how the Prime Directive can be untenable in some circumstances. And this is an important aspect of the show because it reveals how humanity is still evolving and is imperfect. Would be interesting to explore this episode with a sequel 30 years later where the little girl still has the alien stone and her life has been far more altered than Picard and Data could have ever predicted.
