Re: Let's Discuss the Romulan Bird of Prey!

Why couldn't the Feds be copying the Roms?

We tend to assume the espionage, or even just the flow of information, goes only one way --radially outward from the Federation. I doubt this to be the case. Even if the notion of a compact saucer comes from the Romulan encounter by NX-01, it's still Romulan influence.

Of course, one could argue that the NX-01 was already a Miranda-like design.
