The Talon Class was a type of small Romulan scout vessel in service of the Romulan Star Empire's Star Navy in the late-24th century, first commissioned in 2362.
Talon-class vessels were used by the Romulan Empire for variety of missions; much like the Starfleet Danube-class runabout the Lanora-class could function both as a support vessel to larger ships (often used aboard D'deridex-class warbirds as a shuttlecraft) or independently on missions at both short and long range.
The class was originally designed primarily as a courier, for diplomatic missions within Romulan space. Upon entering service the class also saw service as a scout and on missions of scientific exploration. After its successful use by the Star Navy the Tal Shiar also began to use the class on espionage missions.
In their capacity as a scout vessels of this class were sometimes fitted with tachyon detection grid devices which enhanced their sensor arrays to allow them to detect other cloaked vessels.
