Re: The Romulans as "Space Romans"

Ah, quite.

It might be interesting if both takes were correct in the same universe - the Carrizal could have been one of the older ships operating out of contact with home base, visiting the twin worlds and coming up with the frivolous name for them at the same time that Archer's much more modern ship actually contacted live Romulans in deep space and learned and then perverted the name Rumalin in a more direct manner.

"Rumalin" isn't the Romulan (or Vulcan) name for the twin-world pointy-ears in Duane's universe, of course, so the juxtaposing probably isn't worth the effort. But we could always argue that Romulans, representing the particularly argumentative and factionated element of Vulcans, would have a dozen different names for themselves.
