The warlike Romulans (and their Vulcan cousins) are descended from a much more primitive culture. While it was formerly believed that the Romulans and Vulcans had diverged into different species, more recent research has determined that genetically they are virtually identical and can interbreed. Over the centuries, however, they had differentiated in such ways that many still do consider them to be two separate species. Unlike a Vulcan, the typical

Romulan chooses to focus on advancement of the Romulan Star Empire (and if he is a member of a “Great House”, the advancement of that Great House’s goals as well), putting aside petty jealousies and personal ambi-tion. Neither emotions nor logic are shunned, each having an appropriate use. The Romulans, free from the strict emotional control of Vulcan society, are more passionate, but lack the high percentage of people with psionic abilities (and this lack also may be in part due to biological factors). The regenerative powers Vulcans have are entirely due to the so-called “Vulcan mindset” resulting from intensive training to develop these abilities virtually from infancy (while the brain is still “pliable”), while the Romulans do not put any particular emphasis on these Vulcan mental
disciplines.
