The '''Tal Shiar''' (alternate spelling: '''Tal'Shiar''') was an [[intelligence agency]] and [[secret police]] service of the [[Romulan Star Empire]]. People who served in the regular [[Romulan Star Navy]] or the [[Romulan Ground Forces]] were sometimes offered Tal Shiar positions. When the official offer was made, they were offered with the opportunity to decline. (''{{mb|TNG}}'' video game: ''{{mb|Starfleet Command III}}'')

In [[2372]], the Tal Shiar joined with the [[Cardassian]] [[Obsidian Order]] in an attack against the [[Founder]]'s [[homeworld]] in the [[Gamma Quadrant]]. The [[Battle of the Omarion Nebula|attack]] proved to be a trap, with [[Colonel]] [[Lovok]] replaced by a [[Changeling]]. The joint [[fleet]] was destroyed by the [[Jem'Hadar]] and the survivors were taken prisoner. ({{DS9|Improbable Cause|The Die is Cast}})

It was rumored that the [[Praetor]] had [[Tal Prai'ex|Praetorian Guard]] members within the Tal Shiar, to keep watch over the secret police and report any indications of disloyalty or deception. However, there was talk the Tal Shiar had agents in the [[Tal Prai'ex]] as well. Thus, the Tal Prai'ex and the Tal Shiar acted as checks on each other's potentially dictatorial power. Also, either group could make use of [[espionage ship]]s. The chairman of the Tal Shiar is known as the ''dhaemnasi''. ({{Bouteina}})
