I don't really see why the main characters couldn't have interacted with the Romulans - all it would have then required is a cover-up based on the (then) shaky nature of the relationship between Humans and Vulcans.

Re: Romulans as portrayed on Enterprise

I loved the actual Romulans themselves. They were really dumbed down post TOS and ENT livened them up a bit..less pencil pushing, more Balance of Terror.

Re: Romulans as portrayed on Enterprise

If they were going to use the Romulans, they should've just went all-in.

If you're making a story decision based solely on matching up with thirty or forty year material, you're making a bad decision.

Re: Romulans as portrayed on Enterprise

Remember network brass INSISTED that there be some link to the STAR TREK of the future, 24th century + to be a back-up/interest builder to people that weren't too keen on a 22nd century prequel

Re: Romulans as portrayed on Enterprise

Well if they'd started ENT with season 4 they would have more than enough connections.

Re: Romulans as portrayed on Enterprise

I always figured that the Romulans should have been the ones using the Suliban to stir shit up during the series instead of Future Guy/People.

Replace the whole "Temporal Cold War" schtick with the Romulans secretly trying to keep the quadrant destabilized and you're set.
