Re: The Linguistic Downgrading of the Romulans
What I have always found interesting is that no Romulan characters- be it in TOS, TNG, or DS9- ever spoke in their native language on screen, aside from the occasional word or phrase.
From the names and titles the Romulans used in "Balance of Terror," it's obvious that their native language is Latin!
