The RIS Romulus is a Devhanae/Saturn-class hybrid heavy cruiser serving the Imperial Navy. She was launched as a Xanj vessel in 1999 as the ISX Girythian. It was transferred to the Imperial Navy in 2005, whereupon she was refitted for service as an naval escort vessel.

HistoryEdit

The Romulus was originally ordered by the Xanj Navy with the name Girythian in early 1997. The Devhanae-class ship was laid down in the same year, and construction was completed in late 1998. The vessel was launched that year, and was commissioned into the Navy in 1999. The Girythian's 6-year career in the Xanj Navy mainly involved protection of Xanjon's maritime borders.

The Girythian accidentally collided with the Roman aircraft carrier RIS Empress Anna Maria (INC-76245) in 2003. This left a gash in the side of the Girythian's hull. However, the Xanj vessel's crew took this in good humour, saying that it was an honour to be "kissed by the Empress." The Empress Anna Maria was left undamaged.

The Girythian decommissioned in 2005 and the Roman Imperial Navy purchased the vessel in the same year, refitting her with Saturn-class parts, making her the first and only Devhanae/Saturn-class hybrid. New technologies installed included a deflector array and new torpedo technology. For propulsion, the Girythian also had a nuclear fusion reactor installed in place of the outdated and dangerous nuclear fission reactor. The Romulus also became the first vessel in history to be fitted with a laser cannon, as part of a joint experiment between the Roman and Xanj navies. She was re-christened the Romulus and stationed in the waters of the Australis province after a year-long shakedown cruise.

The Romulus was nearly sunk due to a blue whale that appeared off the Australisian coast in 2008. The whale rose to the surface right underneath the Romulus. When the whale submerged, the vessel almost capsized, but she righted herself and the Romulus left the event relatively undamaged.
