As I said in another thread:

This player does not speak for me, and I would gladly spend Zen on the TNG Romulan uniforms.

The Romulan Commander from "Balance of Terror" by a long way.

"In a different reality, I could have called you 'friend.'" - I got chills just typing that.

Rounding out my top three, I'd put Sela in second place just because she's so damned devious, and Donatra at a close third.

I mean seriously the Romulans are simple a separatist Vulcan nation not a different species. And Vulcans don't have forhead ridges. Grrrr!
Guess it depends on what one considers 'cowardly'. I'd describe them more as 'isolationist' for the most part, and by the time of DS9 they actually came across as being quite methodical.

Tomalak. No contest, at least to me. I'd love to see him appear in STO at some point. I would be deleriously happy if that happened.

yes, very calculating and methodical. A good example of this is Vreenak.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
