The Romulans are a fictional extraterrestrial race in the American science fiction franchise Star Trek. They first appeared in the series Star Trek, they have appeared in most subsequent Star Trek releases, including: The Animated Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Picard. They have appeared in the Star Trek feature films Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Star Trek: Nemesis and Star Trek, they appear in various other spin-off media, including books, comics and games. Writer Paul Schneider created the Romulans for use in the 1966 Star Trek episode "Balance of Terror"; as a basis, he considered what the ancient Roman Empire might have looked like had it developed to the point of spaceflight. Physically, the Romulans were presented as humanoid, but the show's make-up department gave them pointed ears to distinguish them from humans. In the series, set in the 23rd century, the Romulans were speculated as to having split from another alien species, the Vulcans, in the distant past.

In contrast to the Vulcans, who were presented as peaceful and logic-oriented, the Romulans were depicted as militaristic, having founded an interstellar empire. The Romulans were used as antagonists for the series' protagonists, the starship USS Enterprise, her crew, their fictional government, the United Federation of Planets. In 1987, the writers of Star Trek: The Next Generation—set in the 24th century—again used the Romulans as antagonists of the Federation; the show's designers added a V-shaped ridge on their foreheads. The 2009 film, Star Trek, depicted the Romulan homeworld, being destroyed by a supernova in the year 2387; the impact of Romulus' destruction forms a plot-theme in the Star Trek: Picard series. The Romulans were devised for the episode "Balance of Terror". In 2014, "Balance of Terror" was rated the best episode in the franchise by Io9; the Romulans were reused for the second-season episode "The Deadly Years" and the third-season episode "The Enterprise Incident". After the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987, the show's writers introduced the Romulans in the final episode of the first season, "The Neutral Zone", which aired in the U.

S. in May 1988. The episode was written by Maurice Hurley, who acknowledged rushing it, putting together a script in a day and a half. In the episode, set in the year 2364, the Starfleet ship USS Enterprise-D—whose crew are the series' main protagonists—responds to the disappearance of Federation colonies along the Neutral Zone, fearing that it reflects growing Romulan activity in the region. Investigating, the Enterprise crew encounter a Romulan spaceship; the Romulans reveal that they have had colonies destroyed on their side of the border too, the two species agree to share information on the issue in future. In episodes it is revealed that these colonies were destroyed by a unknown species, the Borg, whom the show's writers had devised as a new alien antagonist following dissatisfaction with their previous attempt, the Ferengi. Initial thoughts by the script-writers had proposed a multi-episode storyline in which the Federation and Romulan governments would co-operate to fight the Borg. New costumes were designed for the actors playing Romulans, created by the show's costume designer William Theiss.

The newly designed Romulan ship that appeared in "The Neutral Zone" was built as a miniature model by Greg Jein. The ship featured a newly designed Romulan crest, featuring a stylised bird of prey clutching two planets and Remus, in its claws. In the series, this ship type would be explicitly referred to as a "warbird". In 1989, AMT released a plastic kit of the vessel, alongside other kits for a Ferengi ship and a Klingon bird of prey vessel; the Romulans were re-used for the second-season episode "Contagion", written by Steve Gerber and Beth Woods and first aired in March 1989. In this episode, the Enterprise-D entered the Neutral Zone to answer a distress call and ends up in conflict with a Romulan vessel, with both spaceships being disabled by an alien computer virus. "Contagion" was the first episode in the Star Trek franchise in which the Romulan ship was given a name, in this case the Haakona. In the third-season episode "The Enemy", written by David Kemper and Michael Piller and first screened in November 1989, the Enterprise-D is depicted rescuing a crashed Romulan ship.

The episode introduced the Romulan character Tomalak, played by Andreas Katsulas, who would reappear in three further Next Generation episodes. It further established the idea of a significant enmity between the Romulans and the Klingons, with the Enterprise's Klingon officer, refusing to donate blood to save the life of an injured Romulan. Three episodes in "The Defector", written by Ronald D. Moore and first screened in January 1990, a Romulan admiral is presented as seeking to defect to the Federation; the episode is the first in the franchise to include images of Romulus itself and introduced the design of a Romulan scout vessel. "The Defector" includes a reference to the Battle of Cheron, an incident in the 22nd century Earth-Romulan War, mentioned in "Balance of Terror". For "The Search", the opening two-part episode of the third season of Star Trek
