    Episode 74 — Star Trek

    Thanks and excellent question! Having taken philosophy classes in Utah, this is definitely an topic of debate that has come up often, but never framed around the concept of Star Treks' Prime Directive until now. In my experience, Mormon missionaries are on a two year mission (not 5 like Kirk) to seek out those who would be receptive to their message. It would be counter productive to force theology and ideologies, which are heavily based on free will, on anyone. That is why Mormon missionaries invite people to listen, but would never force people to listen. They'll also help you move out of an apartment or paint your shed, if you ask them to. I hope that answers your question, thanks again!
