Romulan and Remus

  
Romulans are usually both larger and stronger than Terrans. The average height for a 30-year old male Romulan is 6'1", while the average height for a 30-year old female Romulan is usually 5'9". Romulans, as a people, are extremely intelligent. This is highly due to an advanced cerebral cortex. Romulans also tend to be on the aggressive side. They are, in fact, the exact opposite of their cousins, the Vulcans. Vulcans are very logical, and reject aggression. Also, Vulcans are usually very small in stature. The most noticeable features of the Romulan are slightly green skin, pointy ears, and two bones located on the forehead.

Romulan names include a first name (considered the main name), two middle names, and your last name. Most first names are no more than three syllables. It is perfectly good edicate to address a superior or a comrade by their main name. The two names following these were given to you by your parents. These names are usually only used in extremely formal situations, where whoever you are addressing is so important, that his full name must be used. Your last name is your family name. A family name is always preceded by t' or tr'. This name is only used when identifying someone or when addressing someone of great importance. Some Romulans put Cha' in front of their last names, rather than t' or tr'. Cha' is a more ancient version, so it is much less common than t' or t

Military
The Romulan Military is one of the most advanced in the Quadrant. The Romulan Star Empire has a large fleet and several ship yards. Most common ship types are D'Deridex Class Warbird, D'Dejin Class Warbird, and scout ships. D'Deridex Class Warbirds are twice the size of a Galaxy Class Starship. D'Dejin Class Warbirds are 3/4 the size of a Galaxy Class Starship , and scout ships are slightly larger than runabouts. The Romulan Military also has many Starbases and space stations throughout Romulan Space. A career in the Romulan Military starts out in a 4-year program at the Romulan Military Academy. Upon completion of this program, an officer is stationed at their first assignment. They continue to work their was up through the ranks. The Romulan Intelligence agency is known as the Tal Shiar. The Tal Shiar are very efficient, but slightly brutal. Most Romulans, however, know that it is extremely smart to stay out of the Tal Shiar's way.

Romulan Weapons
The Romulans have several weapons that they use. These can be broken down into modern and ancient. Modern weapons include disrupters and disrupter rifles. These are used by Government guards, Tal Shiar officers, and Military officers. Civilians do not usually carry or own weapons, at least not of this nature. Romulans also use several ancient weapons, but these are used in a more artistic way. On Romulus and Remus, ancient weapons include the Teral'n, a stick-like weapon with razor blades along the top, and the D'Delak, a small bow and arrow-like weapon. Both of these are usually found at museums and homes of archaeologists. Shipboard weapons generally consist of disruptors similar to the Klingon Heavy Disruptors. The D'Deridex vessel is also rumoured to have some sort of seeking torpedo device as well, but the Romulans have carefully guarded this knowledge as they do all knowledge. Even during the Dominion war, joint sorties only involved Romulan disruptors.
