Start Trek month continues today with the Romulans.
The Romulans are the counterpoint to the logical Vulcan race, which whom they resemble and share a common ancestry. Romulans are characterized as passionate, cunning, and opportunistic — in every way the opposite of the logical Vulcans. They are a humanoid race from the planet Romulus in the Beta Quadrant. They are descendants of the Vulcans who rejected the reforms of Surak during the Time of Awakening. The Romulan Star Empire is one of the major powers known in the galaxy.
Here are some Romulan facts- they have two home worlds called Romulus and Remus. They were created by Paul Schneider, who said “it was a matter of developing a good Romanesque set of admirable antagonists … an extension of the Roman civilization to the point of space travel”. A reference to Saavik being half-Romulan and half-Vulcan was cut from the final edit of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn. It is mentioned in the novelization of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. It was also to be revealed that T’Pol was half-Romulan in the fifth season of Enterprise, this never happened as there was no fifth season.
See you all Monday,
