The Vereleus-class was a type of dreadnought that saw service with the Romulan Star Empire during the 24th century. The class entered service in 2371. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 5: Starships of the Romulan Star Empire; The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)
The design shares many elements of earlier Romulan designs. Its large command hull is connected to the main body by a dorsal neck shows influence from the D'deridex-class. Its main hull is rectangular in shape and a solid structure unlike the rounded two part structure of the D'deridex. Its warp nacelles are connected by straight downward thrusting wing pylons as on more established designs. The design was also the largest Romulan design fielded at that time.
The class was equipped with the most advanced systems available. It had a biogenically enhanced computer system, the latest sensors and the most powerful shields developed by the Romulans at that time. It was armed with the most powerful disruptors available.
It has one notable weak spot, its neck, which if targeted by a concerted attack could separate the command hull from the rest of the ship. The designers looked into making the neck larger and deeper to strengthen it. This extra space than could be filled with additional crew quarters, cargo bays, medical facilities or even another shuttlebay.
