The Mogai-class was a type of Romulan warbird in service in the late 2370s and early 2380s.

The CCG game identifies this class of vessel as a Norexan-class starship



The Mogai class was most likely made in response to the Klingon Negh'var class or the Sovereign class starships. The IRW Valdore, flagship of Commander Donatra of the Romulan Imperial Fleet, was Mogai-class. (TTN novel: Taking Wing)

The commanders of several Mogai-class warbirds were loyal to Donatra, the vessels later came to make up part of the fleet of the Imperial Romulan State once Donatra declared its existence and herself to be its empress. (TNG novel: Q & A; ST novel: Articles of the Federation)

Technical data

Physical arrangement

Similar in design to the D'deridex class warbird, the Valdore type was a large, fixed-wing vessel, ranging in color from dark-green to brown.

With a wingspan roughly 900 meters wide, the vessel featured a large section extending forward to create a down-sloped head shape. Warp nacelles were connected at the end of each wing with impulse engines mounted aft. The hull was marked by distinctive "feather" shaped plating. (Star Trek Nemesis)

Tactical systems

Ships of the Valdore type featured several forward-mounted disruptor banks located on each wing and some on the forward section of the ship. It had at least one forward torpedo launcher able to fire four plasma torpedoes for each recharge.

Main bridge

The command center of the Valdore type consisted of a roughly circular room distinguished by several console positions. With computers lining the rear bulkheads, a center seat or command chair and free-standing console were flanked by two additional stations. As another contrast to the D'deridex class, the viewscreen of the Valdore type was oval shaped. (Star Trek Nemesis)

ST Expanded

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Valdore type article)

The Star Trek Expanded Universe Database is for fanon and related content. See for the canon Star Trek wiki.

The Valdore-type was a type of warbird that saw service with the Romulan Star Empire during the latter half of the 24th century.

The class has yet to be identified in canon and the name, Norexan class is from the Star Trek: Customizable Card Game and has become a popular designation for the class in fanon. The non-canon Star Trek: Titan novels identify this class as the Mogai class. Several other continuities use Valdore as the class name.

In 2379, the IRW Valdore and a second vessel of the same type engaged the Scimitar in the Battle of the Bassen Rift. Both vessels were quickly knocked out of the fight by the powerful Reman warship. (Star Trek Nemesis)


Ship layout

Deck 1 contained the bridge along with the ready room. Below the bridge were the captain's quarters.

The fourth deck comprised both primary and high school classrooms. (RIS Bouteina: "Eidolon")

Decks 2 through 6 housed some living quarters.

Deck 10 housed the main sickbay.

Deck 14 and 15 housed the main science laboratories as well as the multi-adaptive shield generators.

Deck 16 was home to some of the main sensor pallets that were not related to lifeforms.

Deck 17 housed one of the ship's computer cores. (RIS Bouteina: "Battle of Eight Beat")

Deck 19 housed the primary subspace highway detector as well as some of the moisture control systems. (RIS Bouteina)

Deck 22 housed the brig and could hold 75 inmates. (RIS Bouteina: "Manhunt")


The bridge of a Valdore-type ship was very similar to a Sovereign-class bridge, with the notable difference in the viewscreen: whereas the Sovereign's screen was rectangular, the Norexan's was oval-shaped. (Star Trek Nemesis)

Ready room

The captain's ready room doubled as an office and a second private cabin in addition to the commanding officer's private quarters. It was located off the port side of the main bridge on Deck 1, and provided a place where the captain could work or rest while remaining next to the bridge in case of an emergency. Meetings between the captain and one or two people would also take place here.

Annika Hansen decorated her ready room on the RIS Bouteina with World of Warcraft box art. (RIS Bouteina)

Crew quarters

There were 83 cabins for the senior officers. Members of the senior staff were typically assigned quarters featuring a pair of larger, wider windows, a full bathroom area with a bathtub (especially useful once out of the ship's pool) and a desk space large enough to accommodate a computer terminal. (RIS Bouteina)

The ship was large enough to accomodate an entire brigade of marines in normal situation, although its maximum evacuation capacity was 11,300. (RIS Bouteina: "Fury of the Prison Ships")

Recreational facilities

The best-known eatery onboard the ships of this class were also ironically called Ten Forward by people who were once posted on Norexan-class ships for the same reasons as on the USS Enterprise-D and could serve alcoholic beverages as well as food. Its gambling facilities comprised slot machines, a four-card poker table and a dabo wheel, among others. However, foods like bloodwine were available only through replicators, as would patrons who needed medicine. (RIS Bouteina)

Also, the Norexan-class carried eleven holodecks, one of which is located on Deck 17. (RIS Bouteina: "We're All In This Together")

The disruptor range was a firing range for crewmen to practice their marksmanship, located on Deck 13. Just like its Galaxy-class counterpart, it was a dark room whose illumination was provided by a platform large enough to hold two people on it and the targets, whose size and speed varied according to the level selected. Sixteen levels were selectable. (RIS Bouteina: "Marriage and Honeymoon")

Fanon continuities

RIS Bouteina

The Norexan class is an upgrade on the Valdore-class, operated by the Romulan Star Empire with upgraded diplomatic and science capabilities, as well as being more heavily armed than its predecessor, so it could match the Federation Sovereign-class and the Klingon Negh'Var-class more easily in battle.

The Romulan Senate considered the basic Norexan as being less than adequate for future combat purposes, after the Shinzon Incident. Major Romulan shipyards competed against one another for the refit plan in use for the future Norexan design. The major shipyards have finally agreed on a design (some speculate Tal Shiar coerced the shipyard owners to do so) which was unanimously adopted by the Senate. All units in service (as of 2383) are under Tal Prai'ex command, as the Senate has initially deemed these ships fit only for the elite forces, and only as command ships of Tal Prai'ex ship squadrons. Nevertheless, the Senate plans to use the upgraded Norexans in the regular fleet as they are built.

The Bouteina refit included a major refit of its scientific suite, which included a subspace highway detector, magneton sensors, narrow and wide-band multiphasic sensors and, of course, the latest multi-spectro sensors. Tactical systems were also upgraded, such as multi-adaptive shielding as well as phased plasma torpedo casings, which can be fired from the quantum torpedo launcher, itself a novelty. Also, the Norexan class was the first Romulan ship to feature the EMH Mark V.

Note: All Tal Prai'ex ships, in the RIS Bouteina series, have the prefix RIS rather than the prefix IRW usually given to Romulan Star Navy ships.

Also, the Norexan class was sometimes referred to as a dreadnought, both by their enemies, the Kzinti, and the crewmen themselves. (RIS Bouteina: "The Whole Kitten Kaboodle", "Bottle to Throttle")
