Trek Geeks #208: The Romulans


They’re one of the most feared and most deceitful adversaries we’ve ever seen.

From their first appearance in Balance of Terror, the Romulans have been a constant threat to Starfleet and the security of the United Federation of Planets.

They’ve been featured pretty heavily in Star Trek: Picard, so we decided this would be a great time to look at this race. We’ll examine the Romulan society and the history of the Romulans, plus we’ll take a look at some of our standout episodes and some of our favorite Romulans ever.
