Star Trek Reversed Strange New Worlds" Fixing A 56-Year-Old Romulan Mistake

Warning: SPOILERS for Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 4, Episode 5 - "Empathalogical Fallacies"
  • Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 4, Episode 5 reverses Star Trek: Strange New Worlds' map fix of the Romulan Star Empire, showing a map that aligns with the original series episode "Balance of Terror."
  • Lieutenant T'Lyn's emotional turmoil inadvertently affects the USS Cerritos crew, almost causing the ship to enter the Romulan Neutral Zone and potentially instigate a war.
  • The Romulan Star Empire's days are numbered, as their sun will go supernova in 2387, destroying Romulus and Remus, which will have significant consequences for the balance of power in the Beta Quadrant.
Star Trek: Lower Decks season 4, episode 5 showed a map of the Neutral Zone and the Romulan Star Empire that reverses Star Trek: Strange New Worlds' fix of Star Trek: The Original Series' map. The Romulans debuted in the classic TOS season 1 episode, "Balance of Terror," which introduced the Neutral Zone, a fortified border separating the United Federation of Planets in the Alpha Quadrant from the Romulan Star Empire in the Beta Quadrant. A map shown in "Balance of Terror" identified the twin worlds of Romulus and Romii, the latter of which has since been determined to be a star system in the Beta Quadrant.
In Star Trek: Lower Decks season 4, episode 5, "Empathalogical Fallacies," Lieutenant T'Lyn (Gabrielle Ruiz) was unaware she was broadcasting her emotional turmoil via Vulcan telepathy to the rest of the USS Cerritos. Suffering from a form of Bendii Syndrome, T'Lyn's frustration boosted the emotional outbursts of most of the Cerritos' crew, including three visiting Betazoid Intelligence agents posting as socialities. During the chaos, the Cerritos nearly entered the Romulan Neutral Zone, but Captain Carol Freeman's (Dawnn Lewis) starship turned back in the nick of time from inadvertently instigating a war with the Romulan Star Empire.
