In a word- nope.

The show may have ended up with more seasons too since 911 changed the mentality and values of people.

Not to be a dead horse, the Xindi's attack on Earth  (minus the whole Temporal Cold War / Interdimensional Time Traveling Aliens angle) is how I always wanted the Romulan War to start: Romulan warp in, sucker punch the Earth, and Humanity takes the fight back to them.


but if you go by BOT, and i am not refering to that 5 minute history lesson about the Earth/Romulan war, the romulans didn't have warp drive at that time, which i always thought was supported by the events in Minefield (don't ask me why, i don't know why myself). though this can also be contradicted by the holo ship that they used in the Andorian Trilogy. so i guess in the end it is hard to say.

I think TNG gives us a bit of an out: The Romulans use singularity drives.   I might simply be that Scotty didn't recongnize what he was seeing.  Or they shut down the warp-drive to use the plasma weapon.  Of course DS9 reveals that a Romulan ship running at warp can be detected, so again: Shut down their warp-core and cruise along till their out of sensor range of the enemy.

It's the Romulans: they do sneaky, they wrote the book on being sneaky.  

 


 It's also possible that the Romulans couldn't engage their warp or singularity drive while under cloak, much like not being able to fire while cloaked. This would allow for Scotty's line while simultaneously allowing Romulans to have faster than light propulsion. BOT contradicts itself otherwise, because it makes no sense for the Romulans to be an Empire and fight an interstellar war without warp drive. At some point prior to First Contact with humans, they had already engaged Vulcan in a century long war.

9/11 changed a lot of American and international fiction.


"Can you detect midi - chlorians with a tricorder?"
