Re: Brannon Braga: Not a Diane Carey Fan?

^I took it to mean that they were never the construct that humans imposed on our perception of them. Just as "Romulan" was a name we coined for them derived from our own history and culture, so we created our own image of what they were, rather than seeing them for themselves. Basically the point was that you have to understand them, or any culture, from its own perspective, rather than filtered through the conceptual construct that a foreign culture builds around them.
