Notes

As with most Romulan vessels, little is known about the Romulan Science
ship. They are apparently a development of the Scout ship that the Romulans
fielded in 2358, and are believed to have very similar performance characteristics.
The basic hull design is identical, but the forward and aft ends have been radically
altered. The entire forward hull has been redesigned, and a large semi-circular
module has been added to the aft. Some detail of the forward section was gained
when the Enterprise-D lent aid to one of these vessels in 2368. The forward
section was found to contain the ships engineering spaces and warp core. The
ship was found to be equipped with a phased cloak device, which in theory would
allow the ship to pass through normal matter whilst cloaked. This technology
was tested by the Klingons some years ago, and found to be highly unstable and
dangerous. Presumably the Romulans found some of the same difficulties.1




The aft section probably contains a variety of sensor and scanner devices, and
the main body presumably contains science laboratories and other such areas.

Comments

This ship was seen in the TNG episode "The Next Phase", and is a variant of
the model used for the scout seen in "The Defector". The number for
the crew is based on their being 73 Romulans trapped on board the ship; adding
the few alive in the engineering room and assuming some casualties, 100 seems
about right. Otherwise the specs are based loosely aorund the Scoutship.
