Re: Did Ron Moore get the Klingons / Romulans the wrong way round in T

What's more, the Klingons only had cloaking technology because the Romulans gave it to them during their brief TOS alliance.
Rather, they only had it because TSFS was written with Romulan villains and then they crossed out "Romulan" and wrote in "Klingon" without changing anything else. And then the fans rationalized it by assuming that the Romulans gave the Klingons cloaking tech in exchange for getting Klingon ships as seen in "The Enterprise Incident" (which itself was just a passing handwave to rationalize reusing the expensive new Klingon ship miniature they'd just built).
