Emblem of the Romulan Star Empire

The Romulan Star Navy, also known as the Romulan Imperial Fleet or Grand Fleet, and commonly referred to as Imperial armada or space fleet was the space force of the Romulan Star Empire. The Star Navy operated fleets of warbirds, birds-of-prey and other starships and was often at the forefront of the Star Empire's contacts with the Klingon Empire, United Federation of Planets and other external affairs. (TLE novel: Serpents Among the Ruins, TOS novel: The Empty Chair, et al.)

The name Romulan Star Navy comes from usage in FASA's RPG book: Romulan Ship Recognition Manual and LUG's The Way of D'Era: The Romulans. Romulan Imperial Fleet comes from the Starship Spotter and the term space force was used to refer to the Romulan fleet by a Klingon in the TOS comic: "Alien Spotlight: Romulans". The star navy may exist as a branch of the larger Romulan military organisation, the Romulan Guard.

During the Dominion War, the Imperial Fleet participated in the First Battle of Chin'toka, the Second Battle of Chin'toka, the Battle of Cardassia and many other encounters with the Dominion. The flagships of the Imperial Fleet included the IRW D'ridthau and the IRW Rovaran. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind", ST CCG)

In 2380, the Imperial Fleet was divided between those forces loyal to the new Praetor, Tal'Aura, and those loyal to Commander Donatra, commanding officer of the IRW Valdore. The segments of the Imperial Fleet loyal to Donatra later captured Achernar Prime and several other farming worlds, providing the military of the newly-declared Imperial Romulan State.

Emblem of the Romulan Star Empire

The Romulan Star Navy was the primary space forces of the Romulan Guard, the military force of the Romulan Star Empire. Also known as the Grand Fleet or Imperial Fleet ("galae" in the Rihannsu tongue).

The officers of the Star Navy were trained at the Romulan Naval Academy located on Romulus. (Star Trek: Daedalus: "...Old Enemies")



The Romulan Star Navy uses a complex organisational structure for its spaces forces. Its fleets are based around particular groups, such as Command Fleets, Praetorian Fleets, Senatorial fleets, Coalition fleets and others. These fleets are then usually assigned to specific "commands", such as Star Command, Exploration Command, Pacification Command or Occupation Command. These fleets are made up of several avaras or 'centuries' of around a hundred vessels. Avaras are then broken down into command wings of ten to twenty vessels, named after the lead vessel (called a 'wingship') of the wing. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)


During the Dominion War the Romulan Star Navy contributed around 7,000 vessels split into twenty-five fleets. Fourteen of the fleets were command fleets with the rest mainly senatorial or coalition fleets from factions that supported the declaration of war against the Dominion. Sufficient forces were left in the empire to guard against other threats. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

Fan continuities

Star Trek: Remington

In Remington continuity, Starfleet and the Star Navy had established an officer exchange program in light of the newly-peaceful relations between the two navies' governments. However, the peace was shaken by the defection of a significant portion of the Star Navy to the Romulan Confederacy. The defectors, along with those who defected from the Tal Shiar, formed the Confederate Fleet.
