Notes

Very little is known about these ships; they appear to be light scout vessels, but could also be used for general patrol in areas where a large and costly D'Deridex class vessel is not required. Admiral Jarok used a scoutship to cross the Neutral Zone during his defection in 2366; the Admiral set the ship to self-destruct before Federation personnel could board and inspect it, in order to prevent the Federation from learning about Romulan technology.4 These ships were used widely in the Dominion war, and suffered heavily at the hands of the Jem'Hadar.

Comments

First seen in "The Defector", the Romulan scoutship was modified and used as the basis for the science vessel in "The Next Phase". The length comes from the Encyclopedia 2nd edition. Otherwise the text is just a pretty straight description of the ship in.
