Kirk says in a Captain's Log that the Neutral Zone is meant to isolate Romulus and Remus from the rest of the Galaxy, though. He may have just been exaggerating.


This episode was written with the Romulans being similar to the Kzinti from Larry Niven's Known Space series, wherein after being defeated numerous times by humanity the Kzinti were punished by having their world be blockaded from the rest of the Galaxy. Later they changed their minds and had the Neutral Zone just buffer them from the Federation but not everywhere else.
