I don't remember Ayel being called a general (although it's entirely possible that I merely missed the reference). Where does this rank come from? —Josiah Rowe 07:45, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
- When Clifton Collins, Jr.'s casting was announced, it was reported that his character was a general to Nero or something like that. I don't think it was referring to an actual rank. --From Andoria with Love 07:50, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
- Then the article probably shouldn't call him a general, right? —Josiah Rowe 08:22, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Note on name similarity? Edit
Given the screenwriters' admitted fondness for some Trek novels, which informed various details in their script, would it be appropriate to note that Ayel's name is very similar to Ael, a Romulan Commander in Diane Duane's Rihannsu novels? --TimPendragon Hail 06:23, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
- Not unless we have a production source saying that it was intentional. That is always needed, but I think even more so here considering they aren't even the same gender. --OuroborosCobra talk 06:32, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Note on recent editEdit
To whoever put that Ayel is missing, not dead, I believe we can safely assume that he's dead. We saw the ship being crushed. Or is that supposition (since we did not actually see the Romulans die)?Blair2009 20:41, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
- I think the usual policy in a situation like this where someone was aboard an obviously destroyed ship is to assume that they're dead, since that's what was obviously intended. Otherwise, if we don't draw the line somewhere, someone can always invoke a rescuing device of some sort--how do we know Q didn't pull the guy out of there at the last second? :-) Of course, we'll just as readily change it if a later production shows the character in question to not be dead, but with this amount of knowledge, this is the best we can humanly do. -Mdettweiler 07:20, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
