The Bloodwing was one of the colony ships that followed S'task from Vulcan in the Sundering. This ship was lost at 198 Eridani when that star turned into a black hole. (TOS - Rihannsu novel: The Romulan Way)
Along with the other original ships to leave Vulcan, this name was frequently used when naming Romulan military vessels, one of them being the ChR Bloodwing, a Romulan cruiser in service in the 23rd century commanded by Ael i-Mhiessan t'Rllaillieu. (TOS - Rihannsu novel: My Enemy, My Ally)
- According to My Enemy, My Ally, the name "bloodwing" refers to a large, soaring scavenger bird native to Romulus. That the starship Bloodwing predates the ch'Rihan's discovery and settlement suggests the existence of a similar animal native to Vulcan, from which the Romulan animal's name is derived.
