Theory 1: Romulans are actually Vulcan Cylons.

Theory 2: Vulcans created some kind of synthetic life and the Romulan exodus was a result of religious objection to this.

The Borg are okay to harvest, though.

I highly suspect Theory 1 is correct. And I have very mixed feelings about it.

On the one hand, yeah, it'd be Trek blatantly ripping off BSG by having the Rommies be the Thirteenth Tribe of Vulcan.

But on the other hand, we've seen a number of strange things concerning the Rommies over the years that don't make sense if they were just Vulcans that left their homeworld only two millennia ago. Things like Vulcans being unable to give blood to Rommies. I think the most popular theory explaining that has thus far been genetic damage/mutations from the nuclear wars that led to the schism, but... I dunno.

I have to admit I'm not disgusted by the idea itself; just annoyed at it being blatantly ripped from another sci-fi show.

C'mon, Krenim, there's no originality here anymore. The whole tardigrade issue showed that.

Nonsense. All this originality has happened before, and all this originality will happen again.

Clearly, the answer is what I figured out over at DITL:

"Now that the glass bottom was broken by Star Wars, they could just say "the dead speak!" and have Picard see Shatner-Kirk hooked up to Romulan Borg tech, the shadowy figure behind it all, his own post-Norman, post-Korby disdain for "synths" the secret reason he sought to put all these pieces into play."

This even explains how a biological person with a positronic brain could have super-strength, since of course she's Kirk's biological daughter . . . the super-jump was just her manipulation of the midiSwaggerons.

My theory is the opposite: the Vulcans are artificial, and drove the original Romulans off their own world.
