If such the promotional image they were going for, they should have instead had a skantidily clad Orion Slave Girl.

All Romulans from TNG onwards had ridges, I didn't see a single pure Romulan without any. The only Romulans that went without the ridges are Nero and his band of merry men, and the Romulans we saw in TOS.

We've already got enough human-looking aliens in Star Trek. A little variety isn't going to hurt.

Notice the Klingons (outtakes) in the rebooted ST film wore helmets instead of having ridges? The lack of ridges on both Romulan and Klingon within that film was probably due to budget costs, least if nothing else, the writers probably felt that they'd get more of a response from viewers having an Alien antagonist that didn't quite look alien (in the traditional sense).

If she is a Vulcan, then fine. The discussion needs no more. I just figured she was a Romulan because Season 7 is Romulan. Add to that, Season 7 is introducing Romulan Bridge Officers, so...

Oh she's brought all that on herself.

You're saying Nero (and his entire crew) were actually Human-Romulan Offspring (alike Sela, foregoing the ridges). I can accept this.
