Re: Balance of Terror unbalanced - the Romulans never had any chance

Considering the Romulans destroyed four outposts; I wouldn't consider the mission 'one-sided' or a failure. They gave the Empire valuable information (in episode they were sending reports back) and caused great damage to Federation defense at the cost of one ship.

they also DID have an opportunity to destroy the Enterprise and very nearly succeeded; and, if not for the arrogance of a Centurion (and, as a result, the mistake of the Romulan Commander in doing something he knew was tactically wrong); they could have escaped; or drawn the Enterprise into the Neutral Zone where more ships could have converged to destroy her.
