Re: Romulans Or Remans? (May Be Spoilers?)

The first thought I had when I saw the promotional shots of Nero was 'He looks like Shinzon'. Hopefully, he'll be better than that Khan retread. It helps that Bana is a better actor than Tom Hardy.

You have a comic shop within 100 miles of you? Give im a call and see if they have any copies of TREK-COUNTDOWN they can hold for you. If they don't there's always EBAY! Just be prepared to pay ''more'' for them.

You know what I just realized, and is great? Nero doesn't have those stupid stupid TNG Romulan forehead ridges. The ink's a little pointless but it's a net gain.

nero very much looks more like a romulan who for some reason did a job on his ears.
but while i didnt notice he might have remans among his crew.
If you've read ''COUNTDOWN'' you''ll see why that is VERY unlikely! you see both of them aren't on Freindly terms you see.

Good point. The first TREK Romulan since Ambassador Nanclus(2293) in STAR TREK VI to be missing them. Even the 22nd century prequel Romulans in the "United"/Coalition arc on ENTERPRISE had the small cranial ridges. Never liked that.

Something along those lines. But technically even THAT was filmed and shown before TUC. So...strictly speaking...it predates that movie.

Maybe there's two types of ''Romulans''? smoth & ridged.

Like the Klingons? VERY possible. Look at Nanclus in TUC. Set in 2293. He has a Vulcan-like smooth forehead. But the Romulans programming and running the "Marauder" drone ships in 2154 in the "United"/Coalition arc on ENT have ridges.

Also remember the romulan spy in that ark was ''smoth'' as well!

Also, Spock was able to walk around Romulus in Unification without anyone going "why don't you have forehead ridges?"

^Good point, I never thought of that!, but wait a sec, didn't Spock where a cloak and hood when he was in public? Or am I remembering that wrong?
