Commander Suran, once captain of the warbird Soterus, now lives as a gentleman farmer on the planet Talvath. Talvath has recently petitioned for Federation protection, which is what brings me here to interview him. He is the highest ranking military officer on the planet, and has indeed become something of an elder statesman. His intimate knowledge of Romulan politics, and involvement within definitive political events dating back to the conflict with Praetor Shinzon, makes him an even more important source of information. He smiles at me, offering me a glass of water as we sit on the porch of his sprawling ranch.
Very cool way to set up a kind of King Arthur/messianic plot. By the early 2400's, if she hasn't already come back, Donatra will be like a legend while the Romulans suffer.
So who's in control of the Empire at this point? Are most of the worlds calling for Federation protection, or are they re-forming a government under some sort of regent or senatorial leadership? Is there anyone left that has a claim to the throne?
how come the history hasnt change. please cyptic follow the new movie stay ture to trek
The new movie is an "Alternate Reality". It's reality runs PARALLEL with the original universe that we all know and love. It hasn't re-written what we know...
I would just like to elaborate on this a little more - Cryptic is staying true to Trek, as Romulus was destroyed which was the catalyst to the new movie, although, all but Romulus being consumed in a nova, in the new movie it was a Parallel universe. Remember that in a multiverse if the someone goes back and 'alters the time line of your universe' your universe continues on and a new version of your universe which adapts the new changes continues on the same path as well.
Multiverse theory states that for every action there is an infinite series of opposite reactions that are always taking place, which provides us with the alternate universes that trek visits once and awhile.
So if there was a new series picking up where the new movie left of we would be observing the changes in the new universe, and STO would be based off of the old universe we know and love were Romulus was destroyed and not Vulcan. It would be ludicrous to redesign a game to a new universe with a new feel to it when there is already a perfectly well recognized, and stable universe we can use already. No need to re-invent the wheel when you already own a car.
So yo answer your qustion quickly - they are, Romulus is gone So lets us get back on subject and talk about how great that supplemental log was, can't wait for the next.
