BTW...I find it amusing that, for all the Tzenkethi's best-laid plans, the end result was a level-headed Praetor that is, because of such, in a much better position to bring the Romulans into a position of greater influence in the Pact. So, then...the plan backfired!
Only if you have no reading comprehension whatsoever. The entire point of bringing about a Kememor administration was that Tal'Aura was a nationalist who would use the Romulan Star Empire's greater population and resources to overtly dominate the Pact. Kamemor has done the exact opposite, instead adopting a policy of equality with the Pact members and non-antagonism towards non-Pact powers -- which is exactly what the Tzenkethi wanted.
