Re: The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wing - Discuss (SPOILERS)
Ok, I goofed on the carriers, but the Lexington and Wasp were sunk when the US and Allies were fighting a defensive war and the Yorktown and the Hornet were sunk during pivotal battles that turn the tide of the war. Either way, the Earth-Romulan War and World War II were not similar at all.
On another note, I really don't get the massive Daedalus numbers in the novel, especially when you have ships such as the Intrepid, Delta-hull ship, the Sarajevo, and the Steamrunner-like ship from Home that should have played a better part in the war. Not the NXs getting their ass kicked with Daedaluses falling with them.
