Named after a former Praetor of Romulus, the D'Deridex class is a crown juwel of the romulan Military in the later half of the 24th century.
The 1353 meters long warbird design referred to as D'deridex-class, B-type Warbird, or simply Warbird class was one of the largest and most powerful mainstays of the Romulan Star Empire. It served as the backbone of the Romulan fleet during the Dominion War.
The D'deridex-class warbird was classified as a heavy battle cruiser by Starfleet. Using a forced quantum singularity as a power source and the latest in Romulan cloaking technology, the D'deridex was not only one of the most advanced vessels in the Romulan Star Empire, but also in the Alpha Quadrant. These warbirds were roughly twice as long as a Federation Galaxy-class starship.
Vessels of this class were still being constructed in the late 2370s, before being slowly phased out in favor of the more agile and modern Norexan-class warbirds in the 2380s.
