The Talvath was a Romulan science vessel that was in service in the mid-24th century. In early 2350, the Talvath, operating under the direction of Dr. Telek R'Mor of the Romulan Astrophysical Academy, began an extended three-year scientific mission.

In mid-2351, the Talvath encountered a micro-wormhole in Sector 1385 of the Alpha Quadrant that led to the discovery of the Federation starship USS Voyager in the Delta Quadrant, located in the year 2371.

The Talvath was scheduled to complete its mission and return to Romulus in 2353. (VOY: "Eye of the Needle")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 67) and the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Stellar Cartography", pp. 32-33; "Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), there was a star system named Talvath, which might be the possible origin for the name of this starship, in the Beta Quadrant. The system's primary was a K-class star. According to a map of the Romulan Empire – prepared by the Stellar Archivist Lsel Essik, from the Romulan Master Data Catalog, in 2366 – Talvath was identified as a Romulan system.
