Re: EpDis: By Any Means Necessary

Their first instinct, upon meeting Humans, was to lie about how big, powerful, and important they were in the Galaxy. Perhaps they didn't see themselves that way, but the sure did want us to see them that way.

I think you have it correct with the Romans. Personally, I always saw the Centauri as being a lot like us in the USA. But the dress and hair do kind of suggest Roman, don't they?
