  • Federation analysts say that a shakeup in the Romulan power structure leaves the empire vulnerable to attack from within and without. Starfleet dispatches additional ships to the border of the Neutral Zone and considers the Romulan situation one of the main threats to Federation safety and security. (Star Trek Online)
  • After Tomalak's defeat by Donatra and her fleet, Praetor Tal'aura removes him as proconsul, choosing Sela as her right hand and fleet commander. Sela, a Human-Romulan hybrid with extensive experience in the military and intelligence fields, was a part of several major Romulan operations, including a failed a attempt to invade Vulcan and coordinating support for the House of Duras's attempt to take over the Klingon High Council in 2367. As a gift to Tomalak for his decades of loyal service to the Romulan Star Empire, Tal'aura allowed him to "retire" to his rural estates on Romulus. (Star Trek Online)
  • The Romulan defeat at Xanitla made open war with Empress Donatra infeasible. Praetor Tal'aura reluctantly agrees to negotiate with the Imperial Romulan State to determine new borders and the establishment of a neutral zone, but rejects the Federation's offer to mediate the talks. Donatra says that she would welcome the Federation's input, but that she would defer to Tal'aura's decision in this matter. She sends Admiral Taris to the Romulan capital as her representative.

  • On Stardate 61602.00, Tal'aura is found dead in her private chambers. Tal Shiar investigators report that the praetor was attacked as she slept. The Romulan capital erupts in a firestorm of rumors and accusations. Among the groups suspected of carrying out the assassination are a coalition of the noble houses, the Tal Shiar, and agents working for Empress Donatra and the Imperial Romulan State. Donatra denies having anything to do with the murder. "I face my enemies on the field of battle with honor," the empress announces in an address to her citizens, "not with a knife in the dark." Days later, Donatra recalls Taris from Romulus and orders her to prepare to defend Imperial holdings. At Tal'aura's funeral in Ki Baratan, Sela publicly blames the Remans and the Unification movement for the attack. "They claim to desire peace," Sela says, "but ally with the murderers and usurpers who terroized our planet and led us to the brink of destruction. The blood of one praetor was not enough for the Remans. Tal'aura was the victim of their thirst for destruction." (Star Trek Online)
  • On Stardate 61829.83, the I.K.S. Quv is attacked by a Gorn ship. Two hundred and seven Klingons die in the battle. Representatives of King Xrathis of the Gorn claim that the commander of their warship was acting without orders, but refuse to surrender the surviving crew of the Quv to the Klingon Empire. In response, Chancellor Martok expels Gorn diplomats from Klingon space and orders ships to the Empire's border with the Gorn Hegemony. (Star Trek Online)
