True, there is very little continuity in TOS, due to the fact that not all of the details were ironed out yet (and has cause quite a bit of trouble for future series). Which is in part why I mentioned that that particular war was between Romulus and Earth, not Romulus and the Federation.

it is true that romulans at that time and earlier were using impulse ships to travel, in exchange to use their massive plasma weapon, other variants of the bird of prey may not of had this weapon and can travel at warp as it was never touched on in canon, stuff like this is where the problem begins.
Absoultely true. There's been a lot of fan speculation regarding that particular ship (one particular good one is that the BoP was "dropped off" by a mothership of some sort, or at least towed close enough to a point to perform its mission). Especially since ENT (which is regarded by CBS as canon, whatever your personal opinion is :p) is that the Romulans did have warp drive capabilies since the 22nd century.
