Warrior civilization from the planets Romulus and Remus. An offshoot of the Vulcan people who left Vulcan two thousand years ago to found the Romulan Star Empire, the Romulands are a passionate, aggressive, but highly honorable people (Balance of Terror -TOS, Unification, parts 1 and 2 -TNG). The ancient Romulans reached across much of the quadrant with outposts and settlements on such far-flung worlds as Barradas III, Calder II, Dessica II, Draken IV, and Yadalla Prime (Gambit, parts 1 and w -TNG).
In modern times, the Romulans conducted a brutal attack on the Klingon Narendra III outpost in 2344. The Starship Enterprise-C, under the command of Captian Rachel Garrett, responded to distress calls from Narendra III, and attempted to render aid to the Klingons. Although the Enterprise-C was reported lost, the incident led to closer Klkingon-Federation ties in following years (Yesterday's Enterprise -TNG). Two Romulan officers were found on Galorndon Core in 2366 after the dowing of their scout craft (The Enemy -TNG).
The Romulans believed the Dominion to be the greatest threat to the Alpha Quadrant in the last century. Accordingly, the Romulan government attempted in 2371 to collapse the Bajoran wormhole in order to prevent a potential Dominion invasion. The plan, which would have included the destruction of station Deep Space 9 to eliminate witnesses, failed when a clocked Romulan warbird accidentally cause Mile O'Brien to timeshift into the near future, where he witnessed the Romulan attack. Upon returning to his present, O'Brien warned station personnel, thwarting the plan (Visionary -DS9).
Two years later, when an alliance of the Dominion and the Cardassian Union threatened to destabilize the Alpha Quadrant, the Romulans joined forces with the Federation and the Klingon Empire, contributing a fleet of Romulan warships to the defense effort (By Inferno's Light -DS9).
The Romulan legislative body is known as the Romulan Senate (The Die is Cast -DS9).

late 2373, the Romulans signed a nonaggression pact with the Dominion, significantly
affecting the balance of power in the Alpha Quadrant (Call to Arms -DS9). The
Romulans, nominally allies with the Dominion, remained uninvolved in the ensuing Dominion
war while other major powers in the Alpha Quadrant suffered tremendous losses in the
conflict. By late 2374, the Romulans entered the war against the Dominion after the
Tal Shiar intelligence agency discovered evidence that the Dominion was planning to invade
Romulan territory. Romulan authorities did not realize that the 'evidence' had in
fact been falsified by Banjamin Sisko and Elim Garak in a successful effort to persuade
the Romulan government to reverse its decision to ally with the Dominion (In the Pale
Moonlight -DS9). The Romulans were soon a significant force in the war, driving the
Dominion from the Benzar system (The Reckoning -DS9). Romulan forces also were
instrumental in the dramatic Dominion defeat at the Chin'toka system (Tears of the
