Re: Stiles in Balance of Terror

It seems that in both "Balance of Terror" and ST:TNGs "The Neutral Zone" writers were very prone to put in absolute terms about the history of relations with the Romulans that sounded absolute but were later proven to be false or exaggerated.

For example "The Neutral Zone" implies that there as been absolutely NO CONTACT one way or the other with the Romulans for 53 years.

Yet, there was a military confrontation with them just a few episodes earlier (though not shown). And we learn later of a vast number of battles and confrontations with the Romulans during that gap.
