    Yes, it is possible for Romulan to establish a fully developed Colonies if they have started it 2000 years ago. But since Romulan is more similar to Vulcan than Human, so I will see Vulcan as comparation. When we watched Star Trek 2009, it seems that the long time space traveler Vulcan didn't have another fully developed planet beside their own home planet. so Spock said that he suddenly became an endangered species. So the question is, why Vulcan didn't have a fully developed planet / colonies despite their long time history in Space Travel? And because Romulan is their distant family, then maybe Romulan also doesn't has a chance to fully develop a colony.

    Yes, I know, from here on, it will only from our own imagination. As there is no valid information about how Romulan expand their territory. But seeing that this is Alex Kurtzman project, then we can't disregard Alex's Star Trek 09.

    I think there won't be any Dove faction left after the destruction of Romulan Space Empire. The reason is simple, they were the one who trust Spock most. They trusted him so much that they believed that Spock would save their home planet. But, hell. That guy vanished without a trace, and their home planet was perished. Just think yourself as a Dove Romulan. You believe in Spock, and he promised you that he will save Romulan. But the guy was vanished in the most critical moment, and your home planet is perished because of it. I'm sure that you'll hate him much-much more than the Hawk hate Spock and Federation.

    Maybe, but I kinda still want there to be a dove faction, because I think that would be more interesting, then the Romulans all being generic bad guys again, which is a mode they have been stuck for a long while. I want there to be sympathetic Romulans as well as villainous ones and I think a fair amount of Romulans would want to settle on Vulcan, rather then everyone wanting to settle on whatever planet the military conquered and named ''New Romulus''.

    Well, D'Tan is from TNG, he was the kid with the Vulcan toys in Unification, he could still show up if he wasn't killed between then and this show. But that would be pretty small universe.

    I'd rather they came up with their own ideas, keep the STO stuff in STO.

    Does anyone here think it may be a good idea to borrow some ideas from the Rihannsu novel series on how the Romulans should be written in this TV series?

    Patrick Stewart confirms exact date of new series. Show to be set in 2389...two years after the destruction of Romulus.

    I don't think the article conclusively confirms that date. In fact, it adds more confusion. Stewart now says it's 19 years after the series, just like in real life. But the series wrapped 25 years ago, and Nemesis was 17 years ago. So, is it 19 years after AGT, or 19 years after Nemesis? I think he got confused, and I'm not going to take this as gospel.

    While I loved their depiction of the Romulans, I think it's a little too far afield of what's been established in canon to do more than the odd namedrop (which may have already happened: Ael/Ayel)

    I don't think he is separating the movies from the show. As far as Stewart is concerned the Nemesis was the end of the TV series. Hopefully this gets clarified soon.

    1) people are not that stupid.
    I am sick of TV execs dumbing things down on this assumption.
    Dumb people do t generally watch startrek, dumb people prefer kardassians to cardassians.

    2) who said anything about red matter?
    The destruction of Romulus will just likely be back ground information.

    3) who said anything about war? We don't know anything at this point.



    Subspace.....

    That's how they explain everything right?

    Second. A commentor in another forum stated that given Sir Pat's age and his non-involvement in the Trek-verse for the past 15 years (since Nemesis), he can't be expected to know exactly when his character's timeline going to be at the beginning of the series.

    Unless someone with authority said otherwise, I'm inclined to believe Kurtzman's word that the series will take place in 2399 - 20 years after Nemesis and 12 years after the Romulus explosion - an ample time for a galaxy wide refugee crisis and inter-galactical game of thrones that's gonna happen after its destruction.
