Re: Question for Rick Sternbach Re: Qo'Nos One Size

^ You're correct about the FASA source. The original Romulan version is a small scout ship that's only 88m long, by FASA scaling, and the Klingons weren't supposed to make any alterations to technology traded between the two powers. They did so anyway and scaled up the scout sized unit to larger cruiser and frigate hulls, and the Romulans promptly got a form of revenge by directly copying the L-42 frigate design for their own fleet. Even those scaled up versions weren't too much larger than the Constitution/Enterprise type cruisers, and would have been perhaps evenly matched.

But we all know how fun scaling and continuity can be...
