The Star That Destroys Romulus

For Christmas this year I received the complete Star Trek Voyager series on DVD and I've been flipping through the DVDs. While I was watching an episode from Season 3 - specifically 'The Q and the Grey' (I actually didn't remember much about this episode) - I think that I got an idea for what caused the Hobus Stellar Event that destroyed Romulus.

In the episode the Q Civil War caused stars to erupt into Supernovas frequently because of the ammo being used by the Continuum. The weapons damaged subspace and caused multiple stellar events in areas that shouldn't have been undergoing nova formation. What if the destruction of Hobus was the result of the Q Civil War?

I know that someone will say that the Q Civil War took place in 2373 but the Q operate outside of normal time so, for all we know, those supernovas could have happened at any time. Anyone think this is a possibility?

Sure it could be a possibility. And so could a myriad of other explanations. But it's obvious the writers weren't thinking about Voyager when they came up with this idea; they were thinking the supernova was a natural occurrence.

Besides, every supernova that happened as a result of the Q civil war happened in 2373 and in the Delta Quadrant anyway. Why would this one be an exception?

Stray shot?

Muskets aren't very accurate, but I doubt they have that kind of range...

Possibly.

I like to think the Nexus was some sort of left-over from one of the Red-Matter induced Black Holes. "Lightning storm in space."

And the Space Amoeba from The Immunity Syndrome was created by Nero during his 25 year sabbatical (Rura Penthe scen is not canon) and then sent into the Prime Universe somehow.
