Re: Sela...

Remember the defector DeSeve from 'Face of the Enemy' that had been living on Romulus for years? That, combined with the lack of Romulan resemblance on Sela is actually what made me think of the idea of alternate Yar herself as Sela. It seems to me that an officer from a failed Federation colony who had grown to hate Kliingons after years of war might decide that the way the Federation worked wasn't for her after all, and fit in all too well on Romulus...

Also, I agree that if they were going to do it, she should have been dealt with outside of 'Redemption' or 'Unification.' It felt like shoehorned filler where none should have been needed. Tomalak (RIP Andreas) would have chewed the scenery without feeling like filler.
