The scene in which Ayel uses the term prod was originally shot as a different scene which was ultimately deleted from the final cut. Originally, the Narada, having been damaged by the collision with the USS Kelvin, drifted into Klingon territory and was quickly surrounded by Klingon Warbirds. The scene had the Romulans speaking their native language, with Englishsubtitles added for the audience. Speaking Romulan, Ayel addresses Nero as "prod Nero", informs him of the situation, and asks for his orders. While most of the scene was cut, the part with Ayel was maintained, but it was moved to a later point in the film and redubbed in post-production. Ayel's addressing Nero as prod remains intact, although the remainder of the scene is now in English rather than Romulan.
