They’re one of the most recognizable species in Star Trek, and one of the most misunderstood. Breaking away from the peaceful, enlightened philosophy that began to sweep through Vulcan a thousand years ago, they founded a new world, upon which an empire would be forged. From here, these violent imperialists stretched forth their hands, and developed into a galactic civilization. Despite their commonly shown brutality, xenophobia, and mysterious, overwhelming power, the Romulan people are one of the most diverse, complicated, and iconic parts of the Star Trek universe. 

It is this diversity that has allowed so many unforgettable Romulan characters to take the stage. Who could forget the unnamed Romulan commander who lead the attacks against Earth Outposts 2, 3, 4, and 8 along the Neutral Zone, and then against the Enterprise herself, in the classic Original Series episode Balance of Terror? What of the sinister Commander Tomalak, the sly rival of Captain Picard, played by the famed Andreas Katsulas? And certainly, the treasonous, principled Admiral Alidar Jarok, who sacrificed all that he had on a futile mission in the pursuit of peace,  must be mentioned in such an illustrious list. 

This week’s Poll of the Week asks you to name your favorite Romulan, and to explain why you chose him/her. Did you find the strong female commander Toreth appealing? Or were you more a fan of Sela, the skilled manipulator of entire civilizations, and one of the biggest surprises of The Next Generation? Give us your vote, and let us know why you chose it in the comments section below!

Had to go with Sela, her sudden appearance was a shocker way back when and a great way for Denise Crosby to grace our screens on TNG twice more.

Mark Lenard in Balance of Terror.

 

That's a fabulous episode no matter which way you slice it.

Ive always liked Commander Donatra, but Sela is a close second... even though shes only half-Romulan.

 

I also wish Romulans were a normally playable species here.
