Re: Episode of the Week: The Neutral Zone

Well, in stardate order, the big goodbye for the season is "The Big Goodbye"...

Of course, "The Neutral Zone" was not intended to be a self-contained Romulan adventure, but rather a lead-in to a series of episodes featuring the Romulans and the new super-adversary that gobbles Neutral Zone outposts for midnight snack. As such, it could have been followed by any sort of light filler, until the other shoe dropped a few episodes into the second season. Except that it didn't.

Which makes me feel the Romulans were the ones who could have been dropped from the plotline, or reduced even further in prominence. Say, our heroes go to the Neutral Zone and encounter the devastation, but never the Romulans themselves, and nothing about this "B-plot" is concluded yet...
