    I don't see this employed as often as I'd hope in the Azure Nebula Rescue TFO, but the quickest way to free the Romulan ships is to have one player distract the Tholians while another disables the tractor beams. The trick is remembering that the Tholians have F.A.W. (fire at will), so it can seem like they're attacking you but they're really still attacking someone else. Do it right, and you don't actually need to destroy any enemy ships.

    Edit: Oh, so this is where I post this stuff.

    As mentioned, you don't have to actually kill the Tholian ships. If you can move the Tholians away from the tractor area, then the Romulan ships can be released from outside the Tholians' weapons range.

    The previous poster's idea - having one or more ships draw the Tholian fire and lure them away - is certainly doable, but is not the only way (and can't be done solo, of course).

    A couple (additional) ideas for how to do that (these CAN be done solo):

    - Destabilized Singularity Projector (console from the Aelahl Warbird Battlecruiser; ship-limited)
    - Graviton Displacer (console from the Shran Light Pilot Escort / M'Chla Pilot Bird-of-Prey)
    - Tractor Beam Repulsors (possibly partnered with Gravity Well; you would want to push one ship out of range and then use it as the GW target to pull the others)

    It used to be possible to do this without moving the Tholians, at certain stations, by cuddling up close to the back of the asteroid, but the release dialogue has had its range shortened and I believe has also had a line-of-sight restriction added.
