Re: TP: Raise the Dawn by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I finally got to read Dawn, and really enjoyed it. (No surprise there.) I do have a question, and I apologize if it's been discussed to death. (I did search the thread and couldn't see anything, so...)

On page 332, Sisko and Akaar are discussing the Typhon Pact wormhole:

"If you were to try to anchor a wormhole to a planet, even a massive planet, the gravity well wouldn’t hold it. You could certainly use a black hole to do so, and perhaps even some less massive stars, but if that’s where the journey through their wormhole ends, in the center of a star..."

It suddenly occurred to Sisko that such technology could conceivably be employed as a weapon, as a delivery device with which to inject-
So am I crazy, or is this a hint towards what will happen to Romulus? The idea that we may get a real reason behind the simplistic "Then the star went supernova..." routine from ST11 fills me with nerd glee.

No spoilers if this has already come up in Brinkmanship though, please. I'm starting that this week.
