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...
That may sound like a viable option now, but in 1988, you couldn't just assume that the audience knew what Romulans were or what they looked liked. You had to show them onscreen at some point.
