Re: Let's Discuss the Romulan Bird of Prey!
You know... I like it.
Could we go further and say that disasters related to the Romulans trying to use cascading ion drives on the birds of prey (which, as it turns out, were a bit too large and complicated) resulted in their oh-so-willingness to not use them ever again?
I also can't help but wonder if Scotty meant "their power is simple ion impulse"? Surely a system comparable to a shuttle's would be simple in his mind...
