Tricorder;5371729Wouldn't that be illogical? Vulcans might've been peaceful, but they weren't stupid. Vulcans in "our" universe were also peaceful and enlightened species, but that didn't stop them from fighting back when attacked. They almost went to war with the Andorians. I don't see why the Vulcans from the mirror universe would be much different. They certainly adapted well to serve the Empire. To quote Spock: "Terror must be maintained or the Empire is doomed. It is the logic of history." Doesn't sound very peaceful to me.[/quote]Maybe the Humans of the Terran Empire had aid from the Romulan's of that Universe? In return, Vulcan was given back to the Romulan Empire? :rolleyes:

Tricorder;5371729I have a theory for the Orions. All the slave girls volunteerly gave themselves to Kirk.[/QUOTE]Now that's a logical assumption. ;)

Tricorder;5382828I guess Vulcans in the mirror universe either sucked at learning from their mistakes or the humanity appeared to have matured and became peaceful when observed from orbit.

Maybe the events of the mirror universe Vulcan's differed? Maybe they didn't have any contact with the Andorian's until after the Terran Empire had 'occupied' them?

[QUOTE=Tricorder;5386872]And pigs can fly.

Have you never seen a Police Helicopter? ;)

[QUOTE=Tricorder;5386872]And Excelsior class ships have usable Transwarp drive.

Well, depending on how you look at it, the Excelsior did have a working Transwarp drive. They just named a new warp drive 'transwarp' before they met the Borg. ;)

...or if could have been that the Borg assimilated one of the engineers who worked on the Excelsior, and stole the 'transwarp' title as they couldn't think of a name for themselves.

But yeah, lazy scriptwriters. ;)

Romulans would see Terran Empire as a threat since aiding the Terrans could backfire at the Romulans some time in the future since Terrans might conquer them as well.

Yar, I blame Scotty for this confusion. =p [QUOTE=Aerilon;5387363]...or if could have been that the Borg assimilated one of the engineers who worked on the Excelsior, and stole the 'transwarp' title as they couldn't think of a name for themselves.
That's because the Borg has to assimilate something in order to know and understand it. So many minds working together and neither one of them can't think of something original. Ah, the blessing of the Collective Stupidy. =p [QUOTE=Aerilon;5387363]But yeah, lazy scriptwriters. ;)

Maybe a cup of Neelix's "better than coffe" stuff would make them work better. =p

Maybe they were weak, and the Terrans invaded (and destroyed) them, then took over their homeworld, along with their technology, and subsequently invaded Vulcan? ;)

Tricorder;5387386Thank you.[/quote]Welcome. :)

It's a possibility, though probably more a case that they wanted a few more notes in their wage packet.

Naaah. Too easy. =p Besides, Terran Empire didn't have cloaking technology. So, if they've gotten their hands on the Romulan technology, why haven't they equipped their ships with the cloaking devices to have an extra advantage over others?

On the side note, according to the Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Journal, the Romulan cloaking technology was acquired by the Klingons as an exchange for several D7-class battle cruisers during the Romulan-Klingon Alliance.

So, the Klingons have acquired the cloaking technology from the Romulans in "our" universe. Also, Cardassians in "our" universe didn't have cloaking technology. However, in the mirror universe, Klingon and Cardassian ships were equipped with the cloaking devices. So, if the Terran Empire invaded and destroyed the Romulans as you say, who gave the cloaking technology to the Klingons and eventually to the Cardassians? Wait, let me answer it for you: The Klingons have developed cloaking technology by themselves and gave it to the Cardassians when they became allies. =p Or was it the other way around?

My head has just exploded. But...

Maybe the Klingons already had a type of cloaking device, but the Romulan Empire had a more sophisticated version of it? As such, the Klingons would rather have had the better version, and as such, made the exchange?

As for the Terran Empire Universe... If we go by my little theory, some Romulans escaped (this made the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance more of a threat, and explains how the Romulans were easily defeated). ;)

Maybe, maybe not. In either case, it's not important since it happened in "our" universe. [QUOTE=Aerilon;5387963]As for the Terran Empire Universe...

I don't think I quite understand. Are you saying the Romulans who escaped helped the Klingon-Cardassian alliance by giving them cloaking technology?

No, I am saying that those Romulans who managed to escape, would have done so with some of their cloaking technology.

Come later years, the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance would invade and defeat what was left of the Romulan Empire, and following that, would take their technology from them.

Ah, I see. Too bad we'll never know what really happened and how. :(
