The Prime Directive is not just a set of rules; it is a philosophy... and a very correct one. History has proven again and again that whenever mankind interferes with a less developed civilization, no matter how well intentioned that interference may be, the results are invariably disastrous.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation

Picard: We demand the return of all Pepsi products (except for Cherry 7-Up) immediately!
Ferengi: Get stuffed Picard! We know your Prime Directive prevents you from interfering!
Picard: Damn! Who told you that? Data!
Data: It seemed like an important plot complication, sir.
Star Trek: The Pepsi Generation

[the group is discussing with the angels Hokuto's plan to resurrect Alucard and bring about The End of the World as We Know It]
Rason: You can't interfere, can you?
Ruby: What? Can't interfere?
Astreal: You mean they would allow Alucard to come to be even knowing about him?
Elder: The world does still have free will, monster. This boy you speak of is part monster... however, he is part human as well, as he was born one.
Kurumu: So? What does that have to do with anything?
Rason: It means that Hokuto is recognized as a human still to the heavens since that's how he entered this world. And as a human, he is considered sacred. It doesn't matter how evil he is or what his intentions are now. Until he dies with sin, he cannot be touched by the angels.
Ruby: What?! He is far from sacred!
Elder: The laws of the Almighty are enforced here, monster, unlike Rason who can't seem to grasp that, and we will enforce the Almighty's laws with the highest priority.
Kurumu: This is insane! You know Hokuto is going to destroy the world, and yet you're picking on Luna and Falla?! What the hell is wrong with everyone in Heaven?!

How well does it match the trope?
