Re: D'deridex class Warbird vs Galaxy class
Size matters not, though. The Kazon had ships even larger than Romulan Warbirds, and Voyager could handle them one on one, easily.
The sense I always got was that the Warbirds' technology were overall inferior to the Federation's, especially with Galaxy class and newer, and the only thing that might give the Romulans the edge is cloaking technology.
The Romulans must fear the Federation's strength for some reason though, otherwise they wouldn't demand by treaty that the Federation not be allowed to have a cloaking device.
Agreed. That's exactly what I think.
