 1. The Story So Far – A back-story for the events taking place in season 7 is being laid down for us via Dev Blog narratives.  Dev Blogs 6 goes into details about how the fragile Romulan government has once again been plunged into chaos after the disappearance of Sela and how D’Tan, a Romulan with a vision, thinks the Romulans need to find a new way.  In Dev Blog 9 we start to see more on D’Tan’s plans, which include extending the hand of friendship to the Reman rebellion led by Obisek as well as to the Federation and Klingon governments
