In the course of the war, Dominion forces crossed the Romulan Neutral Zone where they attacked Federation assets with the Romulan Star Empire turning their eye away from these breaches in their territory due to the non-aggression pact with the Founders.

History

The Romulan Star Empire was an interstellar empire that was established by the Romulans.

A notable event for the Empire was the Norkan Campaign conducted on a number of outposts with this being perpetrated by Alidar Jarok who was hailed as a hero to the Romulan people. (TNG: The Defector)

Following the Tomed Incident, the Romulan empire disappeared from galactic affairs with them not engaging for the next fifty years. (TNG: The Neutral Zone)

The non-aggression pact with the Dominion was negotiated by Senator Vreenak. (DS9: In the Pale Moonlight)

In the course of the war, Dominion forces crossed the Romulan Neutral Zone where they attacked Federation assets with the Romulan Star Empire turning their eye away from these breaches in their territory due to the non-aggression pact with the Founders. Senator Vreenak who was returning back to Soukara from a diplomatic mission with the Dominion had his shuttle explode on the journey back with the act being attributed to sabotage. The Tal Shiar investigated the issue and it was determined that the Dominion had killed Vreenak after he had recovered a data rod where the invasion of Romulus was being planned.

Overview

The leader of the empire was headed by a person who held the rank of Praetor with appointees being confirmed by the Continuing Committee. (DS9: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges) The government structure of the Star Empire was headed by the Proconsul. (TNG: Unification, Part 2) The Senate was a body that consisted of numerous Senators that included leading figures in the empire.

One of the bodies within the hierarchy was the War Plans Council. (DS9: In the Pale Moonlight)

The Tal Shiar was headed by a person who held the title of Chairman with these typically being placed on the Continuing Committee. (DS9: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges)

Their species were said to be a very moral people with an absolute certainty of right and wrong that determined their friends from their enemies. It was this strict moral compass that was said to provide them a clarity of purpose with this combined with their passion and commitment being compelling qualities. (TNG: The Face of the Enemy) Romulan soldiers was noted for being quite professional in their duty. (DS9: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges) Remans were considered an undesirable caste in the hierarchy of the Empire but had a reputation as being formidable warriors with them being deployed in the most violent encounters.

(Episode: The Reckoning) It was known that there were at least three centuries of mistrust between the Romulans and the Federation. (DS9: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges)

An institution in the empire was the Imperial War College that was a military school where members of both the regular military and the Tal Shiar were trained. (TNG: Face of the Enemy)

A secretive cabal and group within Romulan empire was the Zhat Vash which was a term that referred to the keepers of the dead who were the only ones in their society that could be entrusted with secrets. They were said to a thousand year old secret society that guarded an ancient secret that was so terrible that it could break a person's mind. Part of this involved a complete hatred and loathing of artificial intelligences and life with them working to destroy any such machines. Their existence was largely unknown except as a myth with it being said that the Tal Shiar were simply a mask for this organization to operate with them operating not only on Romulan worlds but others as well. (PIC: Maps and Legends)

Those individuals that were recognised for great work were given the Praetor Colius Award which was a prestigious award in the Romulan Star Empire. (DS9: In the Pale Moonlight)

Their methods of forensic molecular reconstruction were noted for being illegal within the Federation.

(PIC: Maps and Legends) Communication was achieved through the Romulan Central Information Net that was a primary database of the empire that was highly restricted which was protected with progressive encryption lock featuring a forty-three part cypher key. (TNG: Unification II)

Romulan Warbirds were known to make use of artificial quantum singularities as a power source instead of traditional matter/anti-matter reactions. Nullifier cores were used to dampen the radiative emissions of the ships engines whilst cloaked in order for them to remain undetected. (TNG: The Face of the Enemy)

A weapon developed by the Romulan Star Empire were plasma torpedoes that generated an enveloping energy plasma that forced an implosion in the target. It was noted that the initial versions of this weapon had a limited range and the plasma effect would dissipate after a few minutes of faster-than-light travel. In addition, the energy expended forced a Romulan to decloak in order to fire the torpedo. (TOS: Balance of Terror)

The border between the Federation and the Romulan empire was the Neutral Zone that operated as a buffer between the two interstellar governments. (TNG: The Neutral Zone)
