Romulans developed their own version of Nerve Pinching which was focused on the upper part of the face rather than the nerves near the neck. While non-lethal, the Romulan technique rendered their victims disfigured due to inducing nerve damage.

Since it was practiced at an early age for rites of passage, all Romulans bear disfigurement in the form of ridge-like protrusions usually near their forehead.



Good question, No idea! Am dying to hear the answer, too!
Well, my personal theory is some kind of genetic mutation due to some unknown reason... like environmental factors on Romulus and/or Remus... maybe the Romulans just had to have some Augment DNA too, after all those darn Klingons got it !

I also think that working in the mines for generations is what made the poor Remans
so fugly....

And just so you know, of course we Q are above limiting concepts such as time but we also like to be entertained.... so we rarely peek what's going to happen next... most of the time...

Some time ago I wondered about replicators. How much would you normally replicate . I mean, you don't have to own a uniform, you just replicate a fresh one each morning. Need a nice suit for a diplomatic mission? Don't mind looking in the closet (you don't have one), just replicate it. After using your stuff, just recycle it like you do with your dishes. This would apply to all kind of gear, given that it fits through the replicator.

If this would be how it goes, owning stuff would be really different. You probably could fit everything in one suitecase. That makes storage space almost non-existant.

There are most likely some things that are better unreplicated. Such as the stash of real alcohol Guinan kept under the bar.

Also, there is an energy cost to using the replicator, so absent virtually unlimited energy, it may make sense to keep some things in storage.

But, you're right. I never saw a closet on the Enterprise. At least, post-Kirk.

Porthos is not amused.

yes you're right actually, jake sisko marries a black bajoran woman in 'the visitor'

and you're right about gowron, he's about 2 bottles of blood wine away from shouting at strangers in a bus station. at least he's dressed for the part..

I forget where I read it, but there was suggestion that in the Ancient Times, the Nerve Pinch was used as a humane way of killing. I'm wondering if the quick application (as normally seen) causes unconsciousness, but if the contact was maintained, if it would eventually be fatal...

I think you're probably right that many things would be replicated and recycled on a daily basis and it might only be a few personal keepsakes which people might want to keep permanently, like when Data tried to resign his commission to prevent himself being disassembled, he really didn't pack much in the way of possessions, because as you say, most other things like clothing etc, could always be replicated anew on a daily basis
