    The episode title is a latin adage, often translated as "If you want peace, prepare for war". It's also one of nine Star Trek episodes with latin titles. The others are "Sub Rosa", "Dramatis Personae", "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges", "Ex Post Facto", "Non Sequitur", "Alter Ego", "Terra Nova", and "Vox Sola". - Memory Alpha

    Of course, the words “Ego” and “Dramatis” are Latin borrowings from Greek.

    Looking forward to the episode. Is the poster official?

    Obviously, they should fail at learning the secret of the cloaking device.

    Why? I thought the Federation did not use them due to self-imposed doctrine, not because they didn't understand the technology?

    They didn't use them because of a treaty that doesn't exist yet.

    Kirk stole a Romulan one in TOS.

    A planet of the week story. Kirk and O'Neill would approve.

    As I expected "this is not the time to grieve" had nothing to do with the admiral.
