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.

HistoryEdit

Tarra nova

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.


Romulus riots

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)


Fan continuities Edit

Star Trek: Poseidon - The Birth of the Coalition Edit

The Battle of Sector 2148 was a decisive strike by United Earth and MACO forces which stopped the Romulans from staging an invasion of Earth.

Star Trek: Remington Edit

Captain William McCarthy was an ancestor of Richard Boswell who served as the commanding officer of the Endeavour (NX-06) during the war.

Dispatches from the Romulan WarEdit

Soldiers married their sweethearts in a large pre-strike ceremony organized by gossip columnist Rona Moran (Soldiers' Marriage Project).

Prisoners of war escaped after being held by, apparently, the Remans (Prison Break).
