Re: Nero: "It happened! I saw it happen..."
Also, Nero's accent sounded to me closer to a Southerner than a Romulan.
And Romulus doesn't have a South? What if most of the Romulan miners actually come from a southern province?
Or did you mean an American Southern (southeastern US) accent? If so, Nero's speech didn't strike me as sounding particularly southern-accented at all.
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
