The Romulan D'renet class is a science vessel based off the Praex class scout. A small ship, with a crew of about 73. A ship of this class served as a test-bed for an experimental interphase cloaking device in 2368. During the tests, the ship experienced a major malfunction of the warp core, but was able to return to Romulan space, thanks to assistance rendered by the Enterprise-D. Very little is known about this ship's abilities, but it's believed to be on par with the Federation's Oberth and Nova Class ships. Very little is known about the scout version of these ships; they appear to be light scout vessels, but have also been used as test beds for technology research projects.
Admiral Jarok used a scoutship to cross the Neutral Zone during his defection in 2366, the Admiral set the ship to self-destruct before Federation personnel could board and inspect it, in order to prevent the Federation from learning about Romulan technology. Another scoutship was used by the Romulans to develop their phased cloaking device. This vessel suffered a catastrophic accident in 2368, killing many of the crew and initiating a warp core overload. The Enterprise-D rendered assistance to the ship, managing to eject its warp core in time to save the remaining crew and ship.
