The Argus class was a type of battle cruiser fielded by the Romulan Star Empire during the 23rd century. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 4: Starships of the Original Series Era)
The Argus class was a somewhat unsophisticated design for its time. The ship lacked a "true" warp propulsion system, beam weaponry and many shipboard amenities. However, it was a considerably dangerous opponent due to its powerful plasma torpedoes and its cloaking device, allowing for it to launch a devastating first strike against an opponent.
The Argus design consisted of a large, flat main hull with two pylons angling upwards from the side of the ship holding the nacelles. The ventral side had a large red "bird of prey" painted on, which led to it been commonly referred to as a "Romulan Bird-of-Prey".
