The D'virin-class was a type of Romulan starship used by the Romulan Imperial Fleet in the late 24th century.

History and specifications[edit | edit source]

The D'virin class of incursion frigates was designed as a direct homage to the venerable Tellus-class of the early-23rd century warbirds. They were first commissioned in the mid-24th century, designed as forward observation and long-range reconnaissance vessels, their quickness—combined with their deep-space capabilities—has made them fixtures at most Romulan frontier outposts. These small ships can pack quite an offensive punch.

D'virin-class vessels are capable of a diverse range of mission profiles, like their slightly larger counterparts—the D'tavan-class of strike frigates. Historically, these ships have been stationed in the newly occupied client systems within the Empire, or along hostile borders with neighboring stellar powers. Their high sustainable velocities, coupled with their ability to remain cloaked for long periods of time, make them ideal covert penetration vessels.

Unfortunately, these capabilities also require large portions of the vessel to be dedicated to the enhanced systems, making the D'virin class perhaps the least comfortable of all Romulan ship types. Although, the crews of these vessels take a perverse pride in their hardship; members of this extended "D'virin fraternity" often greet each other like long-lost brothers, allowing their common experiences to create an unspoken bond among them.
