Class Information

Ventral Aft view

First encountered in 2152 the 22nd Century this is the earliest known example of the Romulan Bird of Prey. The ship was encountered by the Crew of the NX-Class Enterprise when that ship had entered a star system that had been calmed by the Romulan Star Empire. During this encounter the Bird of Prey was observed to cloak and de-cloak several times. In further encounters with ships of this class there was no further observations of the ships using cloaking technology leading annalists to suggest that the cloak was either experimental technology that had not yet spread to other Romulan ships.

The Bird of Prey as filed during the 2150s was a single hulled ship that narrowed from bow to stern. The aft end of the ship housed the twin impulse engines and there was a raised section on the dorsal side of the hull that housed the ships bridge and other command areas. The Bird of Prey was equipped with twin warp nacelles that were held at the end of nacelle pylons that where angled so that the nacelles were held above the hulls center line.

The Bird of Prey was equipped with an array of Disruptor Emitters across the dorsal and ventral surfaces of the ships hull to proved 360 degrees of coverage. The ship was also equipped with two torpedo launchers both covered the forward firing arc. The Romulan vessel was also observed to make use of deflector screens to protect the ship from enemy fire and other hazards that the ship might encounter while in space.

The Bird of Prey was observed on many occasions during the Earth/Romulan war. From the data gathered during the war the Bird of Prey appeared to make up the bulk of the Romulan Imperial Fleet. During the war the Bird of Prey proved to be an effective combat vessle due to being heavly armed and highly maneuverable for a ship its size.
