This question already has an answer here:
As the title suggests what is the nature of the Vulcan Romulan divide?
Is it biological, are the Romulans biologically distinct enough to be considered a different species ?
For example would a medic treating injuries in war time need to check if the patient was from Romulus or Vulcan in order to provide adequate care ?
Or is it political with the only thing separating them is their differing philosophies ?
