The Veles Frigate is one of the largest medium ships in the Romulan navy. Armed with no less than four plasma torpedoes, the Veles is a deadly opponent. However, the Veles' abilities did not come without their price. The ship's warp core is stressed to the maximum and is unable to power all of the ship's systems simultaneously. The ship is slower than ships of similar sizes operated by either of the Federation or Klingons but has exceptional maneuverability which allows it to best them in combat.
