Class Description

During the latter part of the Dominion War it was realized that the Romulan Empire's larger D'deridex Class Warbirds were more then a match for most ships the Dominion had, with one exception. The Dominion Attack ships were too small, fast and maneuverable for the D'deridex to be able to take out in large numbers, and therefore the Romulan fleet suffered blows from that.

With the introduction of the Valdore late in the war, the Romulan Empire knew they also needed something still smaller, yet powerful. After the success of the Laehval Class the Empire wanted to take a similar approach, yet this ship would be more battle oriented and be larger, and able to carry more troops.

They also needed a ship that was more maneuverable then the rather bulky Laehval. Construction began on the Shrike Class in the middle of 2373 and the first ship was off the press the same year. Six ships of the class took part in the war, all in successful engagements. The Shrike Class was proving to be worth it. Serving as wings for D'deridex Class Warbirds, the Shrikes were also flanking the similar Klingon B'rel Class Birds of Prey, taking out large numbers of Dominion Attack ships at a time.
