Re: Stiles in Balance of Terror

You're assuming that simply because the Romulans had no contact with the Federation, that they had no contact with other neighboring species.
The thing is, the episode itself is explicit about it: the RNZ completely isolates the Romulans from everybody.

Of course, all later Trek references to Romulans serve to moderate that initial claim (that is, they establish that Spock told a misleading untruth). So yes, the two villains could certainly have been veterans of fights with Klingons or Kinshaya or whatever.
