Re: Nu!Trek and Romulan War

Let's also not forget that, if ENT is accurate that Section 31 existed as far back as the Earth Starfleet, and if Section 31 has always been so good at acquiring information, Section 31 and certian high-level Starfleet and Federation officials probably knew what Romulans looked like during the original war. (The "Star Trek: Federation" book speculates that this was intentionally kept secret so as to not disrupt the burgeoning alliance between Earth and Vulcan.)

Therefore, all we need is for someone from Section 31 to see a recording from the Kelvin to know who the attackers are, and then I'm sure the S31 machine cranked into high gear, gathering information on Romulan language and culture.
