A D'deridex-class warbird.

Warbird is a starship classification, usually used for starships of the Romulan civilization. The nomenclature originates with a ship named Warbird, one of the vessels lost among the fleet that colonized Romulus. (TOS - Rihannsu novel: The Romulan Way)

The Romulan practice of decorating their warships with the images of large predatory avians may also stem from, or be responsible, for this terminology.

The term has been applied to various ship classes at different times, usually the Romulans' dominant ship type of the period. For much of the 24th century, "warbird" referred to the D'deridex-class.

An unusual hybrid starship encountered by the USS Enterprise in 2370 included components of a Romulan warbird. (TNG - The Space Between comic: "Strategy")

From it's presentation in the comic the ship was most likely made from part of a D'deridex class vessel.
