Re: Tomalak's intelligence?

Honestly, not much about Tomalak was ever really established on screen, so the depiction of him in the novels isn't really contradicting anything. Admittedly, I never thought in the episodes Tomalak was as much of a "dullard" as those novels make it seem, but then there's no real indication that he was supposed to be Picard's Romulan equal or anything.

While it may be different to how I viewed the character, I see nothing wrong with how Tomalak was depicted in those two novels and considering the character has what, a combined total of 20 minutes screen time (that's not counting Future Imperfect, which wasn't really him) I'd say novel writers were free to take the character in any direction they liked.
