Specifications - D'deridex-class

« Back to Specs


The D'deridex-class was the successor to the Amarcan-class warbird of the 2340s and the War Eagle-class, enlarging its double-hull design and correcting some weaknesses which had become evident in the older vessels. The class was designed to be larger than any Federation or Klingon starship of the time.

The class was extremely successful and soon found its self making up the bulk the Imperial Romulan Fleet. D'deridex-class vessels represented the Romulan Star Empire in numerous incidents and historical events and the class participated in many engagements in the Dominion War.

Vessels of the class were still being constructed in the late 2370s, before being phased out in favor of the more powerful Mogai-class warbirds in the 2380s.

The class was named after Romulan Praetor D'deridex, who held office during the late 22nd century.
