They have photon torpedoes. They are strong.

I like the idea of a Romulan baddie. Klingons have been used a feature villains numerous times throughout the films and Romulans, well only Nemesis and that didn't turn out so well. I'd like to see a really good Romulan Trek movie and maybe this one'll be it.

Technically speaking the Romulans were never the chief bad guys in Nemesis.

Shinzon was human and he commanded an army of Remans.

Shinzon killed the Romulan High Council and the only two Romulans left in charge were sympathetic to the Federation and even helped the Enterprise destroy the Scimitar.

So again, technically speaking, Romulans have NEVER been the chief bad guys of a Star Trek movie to date.

Which is why I welcome the new villians.

That's true, but the Romulan/Reman world was the focus of the movie. In the films, I've always wanted to see more of that world and Nemesis went more in depth than any other.

Well since Nemesis was a rather mediocre movie(not because of canon but because of everything else), I can't say they exactly tried to go in depth at all.

Commander Denatra is the one who physically assassinated the Romulan High Council at the behest of Shinzon, then later in the movie, for seemingly NO REASON WHATSOEVER, she decides to have a conscience about the destruction of Earth and decides to help the Federation and turn on Shinzon.

I don't recall ever seeing any scenes in the movie on Romulan that didn't take place in the High Council Chambers.

So I think Nemesis failed miserably at exposing me to more of the Romulan/Reman world.

I didn't say it was good, I'm saying of all the races in Trek, it focused on the Romulans, which I'd like to see more of.
