Therefore the Federation would never have countenanced such intervention because of the potential disasters that could become of doing so.
This is one colony... and we've already begun exterminating endangered species (Salt Vampires) for no good reason at all in the name of helping one isolated Romulan Colony.
As for the Klingon Empire, they should be aggressively taking the territory that once belonged to the Romulan Empire... not tagging Pig-Bunnies.
They are a small part of their species and they never said they wanted to speak for all Romulans.
They are open to take in any Romulan Refugee who wants a new beginning, but they don't force anyone.
They make it a point to stand apart from what is left of the Romulan Empire. They are political refugees, not disaster refugees, since the Romulan Empire has established a new homeworld on Rator already. They could live there if they were ok with political oppression by the Tal Shiar and formerly Sela's dictatorship.
The salt vampire mission, btw, has nothing to do with New Romulus. That mission takes place on Hfihar, at the mining colony we visited during Cloaked Intentions.
D'Tan is using diplomatic channels and has established that they are independent and open to humanitarian aid.
please point me to the dialog or cutscene that states otherwise and they are in fact still subjects of the Romulan Empire.
