The following is a list of unnamed Romulan starships classified as Birds-of-Prey in the 22nd and 23rd centuries.

22nd centuryEdit

Encounter with Enterprise (NX-01)Edit

In 2152, two unnamed Romulan Birds-of-Prey chased the Earth Starfleet starship Enterprise from their territory after the Earth ship mistakenly entered one of their minefields. (ENT: "Minefield")

The novel The Good That Men Do gives the name of one of these vessels as the Praetor Pontilus (β). The prototype cloaking device used by the ship was eventually proven unsuccessful when its use caused an antimatter containment failure and the destruction of the ship later on.

23rd centuryEdit

Praetor's flagshipEdit

In 2266, the Praetor's flagship was involved in the Neutral Zone Incursion with the Federation. The ship attacked several border outposts, destroying them utterly. The USS Enterprise responded to the alert and engaged in a tense game of cat-and-mouse with the intruder for more than ten hours, before the Bird-of-Prey was destroyed. (TOS: "Balance of Terror")

The reference book Star Trek: Federation - The First 150 Years identifies the name of the Praetor's Bird-of-Prey as the Algeron.
The Star Trek Customizable Card Game gives this ship's name as Gal Gath'thong (β), named after the Gal Gath'thong mountain range on Romulus. The Decipher RPG sourcebook Starships calls this vessel the Tellus while The Way of D'era calls it the Nhorazz.
The Starships RPG sourcebook gives its registry as I.R.C 1100.

Border patrolEdit

In 2267, ten unnamed Romulan Birds-of-Prey engaged the USS Enterprise after it entered the Romulan Neutral Zone. (TOS: "The Deadly Years")

The original footage of these vessels was recycled from "Balance of Terror".

Capture of the EnterpriseEdit

Two Romulan D7s, and a Bird-of-Prey, surround the Enterprise.

In 2268, an unnamed Bird-of-Prey and two unnamed Romulan battle cruisers participated in the capture of the USS Enterprise after it crossed Romulan Neutral Zone.

They would eventually be outmaneuvered by the Enterprise after it engaged a cloaking device stolen from the Romulan flagship. (TOS: "The Enterprise Incident")

This vessel originally appeared as a D7-class. It was replaced as a Bird-of-Prey in the remastered version of the episode.
