Re: Let's Discuss the Romulan Bird of Prey!
is the gif I promised. It's about 2mb and it fades from a dorsal view of the TOS Rom BOP to one of Miranda, and back again.
Nice graphic visualization! I think it proves the striking similarities.
If the NCC-1831 on the starship status chart in "CourtMartial" is a Miranda Class ship (TOS or TMP style?), I'd say it's the Romulans that stole the design.
