I was just looking at my accolades, and I realized that I have personally killed over 1000 Romulans, and destroyed at least 200 of their ships. Assuming that their average ship has at least 100 people aboard, that means I've killed at a minimum, 21000 Romulans myself.
There are over 2 millions captains in STO right now. Assuming that at least 10% of them have killed as many Romulans as I have, that's 4.2 Billion dead Romulans.
This is all coming about one generation after the destruction of their homeworld. How is this species surviving!?
