Re: Romulans as portrayed on Enterprise
Its kind of obvious why we saw Romulus in those episodes, in order to establish the Remans in another branch of the franchise outside of Nemesis and the name Valdore.
Which is more likely: That the writers of ENT -- who are, by the way, not the same guy as the writer of NEM -- wanted to have minor tie-ins with a two-year-old movie that had failed at the box office, and so structured the entire Romulan arc around that?
Or that they just wanted to be able to tell us a parallel story from the bad guy's POV, and added in some minor NEM tie-ins after that?
