The RIS Behemoth was a PumwI'-class dreadnought brought back in service in the late 24th century. (RIS Bouteina: "Battle of Eight Beat")


It differed from the Klingon units because it had five plasma torpedo launchers rather than photonic missiles or photon torpedoes. Also, it had less disruptors than its Klingon counterparts, 16 vs. 25. (TOS video game: Starfleet Command (game))

However, since every major system has been overhauled, especially the warp core, its comfort was also much higher as a result. (RIS Bouteina: "Battle of Eight Beat")


When Klingon Ambassador Vak Kaleen convinced the Romulans to attack the Federation, part of the agreement included the delivery of a new PumwI'-class dreadnought. The Romulans named this ship Behemoth and converted it to their technology. It was the most powerful single unit in the Romulan Fleet until the advent of the Fvillha-class Heavy Dreadnought. (TOS video game: Starfleet Command (game))

It has played a role in the General War and it served as the flagship of the then-Fourth Fleet. But after the ISC War of Pacification, it was placed in the Museum Fleet. It was brought back in service in 2374, with its conversion completed too late for the Dominion War. It saw service again in 2386. (RIS Bouteina: "Battle of Eight Beat")
