Why is the last paragraph of this article tagged with a citation to Probe? To me, it reads like a straight historical account, and if there's anything specific to the novel (which, I admit, I have not read in forever), I'm not seeing it. --Seventy 17:11, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

IIRC, all that information is mentioned in the novel, comparing the current Romulan situation with perestroika. --TimPendragon 17:28, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
Then that comparison would be interesting and make the article far more relevant to our source material rather than using the citation as an excuse to write an otherwise real world history. -- 8of5 17:37, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
Indeed. Something like "Spock compared the Romulan situation in 2286 to that of the Soviet Union in 1989" would actually be a lot more informational to the Trek fan visiting this site than this big chunk of data. (I'd also argue it would fit better in a Soviet Union/Russia article than here, since the policies of perestoika weren't limited to issues of the Cold War, but that's quibbling.) --Seventy 17:54, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
