Romulus named after Romulus Edit

I removed the background section from this article:

The planets Romulus and Remus, the major worlds of the Romulan Star Empire, were named after these figures from early Roman history. The fact that the planets' namesakes were seen on-screen may seem to some as a paradox, as the chances of sister planets in a different star system being the same as figures from early Earth history are slim.

my rationale was that, unless there is a citable source for the obvious production pov source for the use, lets not include the statement, and as is apparent from alien races and individual aliens with Human words as their names, in Trek, the same name can exist in-universe and have completely unrelated origins. --Pseudohuman 00:49, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

How about keeping the first sentence, as production/realworld information, and eliminating the second sentence as in-universe speculation/nitpickery? --TribbleFurSuit 04:29, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

If you can cite it. Otherwise precedence says no. --Pseudohuman 04:49, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

We should definitely write up a common sense policy. :) --From Andoria with Love 19:51, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
