    Out there. Thatta way.
    Well, that's a relief. He could've said Turnabout Intruder and Spock's Brain were his touchstones.

    Just a wild guess - U.S.S. Discovery disappears somewhere along the Romulan Neutral Zone at the end of the series.

    In the original script for Balance of Terror, the Romulan ship was supposedly based on some Federation Starship design. There was apparently even a part of the episode cut out that mentioned it.
