It's legitimate enough to be a significant threat to both the Federation and the Klingon Empire. Do you really want them to stand idly by while Sela's forces wreak havok?

These aren't normal Salt Vampires...they're genetically bred weapons. Who knows, they might not be able to consume salt the normal way. Of course, that raises the question of how the Tal Shiar planned to feed them...

J'mpok agreed to help New Romulus; therefore he must approve to a degree.

We have to start somewhere. Why not the "new capital"?

I believe the Empire's reasoning was described in Dev Blog #15:

"By supporting the new Romulan colony, we conquer one of our greatest foes without a single blow. We gain their friendship, and later perhaps their loyalty. We solidify our relationship with the Remans. And we still retain the chance for combat and glory ? the Romulans are not in a position to fight their own battles. They will need our ships to defend them from the Tal Shiar and the Tholians.

"We are reaching a turning point in history. Kahless said it was better to lose one battle than to lose an empire. I would say it is better to forego one war to win a greater one.

"J?mpok will keep the Empire at odds with Starfleet as long as he can. His greatest fear is that the Empire will be dominated by the Federation. But it is not Starfleet we need fear. It is the Iconians.

"We know the Iconians are coming. We know their eyes are fixed on the Romulans. The Empire must be ready ? for whatever may come."
Please fix the Foundry lag!
