Earth-Kzin Wars

The Earth-Romulan War was a major interstellar conflict fought during the mid-22nd century between the forces of United Earth and those of the Romulan Star Empire, and their respective allies.

History[edit | edit source]

Tara Nova, the sight of the first battle of the romulan-earth war

The war began in 2156 with the attack on Terra Nova, one of Earth's settlements. Salem one 's construction was ordered by Starfleet command even though they knew the area of space was claimed by the romulans.

One star ship to take part in the war was the USS Yorktown (NCC-208) under Bill Stiles. After the attack on Terra Nova she was one of the ships that laid pursuit of the romulan fleet that was responsible for the attack. The Yorktown was ambushed and Stiles was put on trial for his recklessness during the incident but was not found guilty of the charges.

Riots on Romulus

On Romulus, there were several large protests over the war in the larger cities. Many civilians were killed during these riots including the sister of a Commander Senak. (Star Trek: The Romulan Wars)

The war ended with the Battle of Cheron. A stunning victory for Earth, it ended the Romulan threat to the planet and the Romulans negotiated a treaty that created a neutral zone to act as a buffer between the Romulan Star Empire and Earth territory. (TOS: "Balance of Terror"; TNG: "The Defector"; ENT novel: The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm)
