Re: What happened to the Romulan Empire after Romulus was destroyed

The correct answer will invariably be "whatever the plot requires."

If they want a weakened Romulan empire, they can manufacture the supporting facts easy enough about how epidemics, industrial failings and manpower shortages cause it's downfall.

If they want a resurgent Romulan empire all they have to do is say okay Romulus is gone, but the other few dozen colonial worlds are doing just fine and the Empire keeps going with a change in the location of it's capital.

A pity ST09 had to screw up the main universe while introducing their physics altering alternate one.
