Re: Did the Klingons destroy Romulus in Abrams Star Trek?

Klingons in TNG know a lot of interesting ways to destroy stuff. The atmosphere-torching in "The Chase" was pretty impressive, for example. It shouldn't be all that unlikely for them to learn new and even more destructive arts post-TNG.

Whether Klingons really covet territory, we don't know. The impression we get from TNG and DS9 is that they simply want to crush their enemies; their single known conquest, from "Errand of Mercy", also merely served the higher purpose of giving the UFP a walloping. And while the competitions in "Trouble with Tribbles", "Friday's Child" and "A Private Little War" all involved planets, it seemed to be the game rather than the prize that mattered...
