Re: Unification Invasion

In the DS9 episode Homefront Earth was left defenseless after a group of academy cadets sabotaged the planet's power supply grid, so it's certainly feasible that the 2,000 troops on the transport ships were some kind of strike team sent in to neutralise the planet's defences, etc via sabotage or special ops before a much larger invasion force went in.

I guess in the 24th century with planet-wide systems this is a much more feasible way to invade a planet. Of course, this doesn't really explain how the Romulans planned to hold on to the planet - the logistics would have been mind boggling.
