The I.R.W. Scimitar was a Reman Scimitar-class Dreadnought in service of the Romulan Star Empire under Praetor Shinzon's short-lived reign. She was the first of her class and equipped with thalaron weapons and a squadron of Scorpion Fighters.
Service history[edit | edit source]
- In 2379 the Scimitar engaged the U.S.S. Enterprise-E and the I.R.W. Valdore in the Battle in the Bassen Rift en route to attacking Earth. Lieutenant Commander Data eventually destroyed the Scimitar by firing a hand phaser into the thalaron matrix, sacrificing himself in the process.
- The Scimitar spawned a new class of ships, the Scimitar-class, which serves as a flagship class in Romulan and Reman fleets as of 2409. The Romulan Republic also develop the Falchion and Tulwar-class derivatives.
