business called again, so I had again to resort to using a minion :-) to make sure you get this:
Let's compare him to the original Tomalak. He was OFFICER, Diplomacy, Leadership, Cunning 7, Strength 9, Command Star and - SURPRISE! - Integrity 6. Whoops. 1 point of Integrity and the "multiland" effect ? And they created a RARE for this ?
Well, the reason behind this: They urgently needed an AU Romulan. Look through the cards - there is none. Except the two dual affiliation pals, but they obviously wanted at least *one* pure Rommie in there. And the selection was not that great - the show does not help us out very much.
But they could have given him one of the Science-related skills (Astrophysics or Stellar Cartography) and the card would have been at least different enough to stand its own.
Oh, and what I said about the original once in the context of one of the older COTD's still holds true: Why use a Tomalak if I can have a Tebok or an Evek?
