Romulus is the adopted homeworld of the Romulans and capital planet of the Romulan Star Empire. The planet is also known as ch'Rihan (in the Rihannsu language). Romulus is the third of ten planets, and its tidally-locked "sister world" was known as ch'Havran. Together, Romulans and Remus were sometimes called the Hearthworlds. Remus and the planet Romulus had a "Trojan relationship" in the way they revolved around each other. The sun around which Romulus orbited is known as Eisn.

Romulus is a lush, humid world abundant with vegetation and large bodies of water, and was designated a Minshara class world. The planet has two moons, Pirek and Elvreng.

Overview

The planet is noted as being rich in different kinds of organic life with a climate far better then what was present on Vulcan with abundant supplies of water with much larger seas. Varying types of habitations were also present from deserts to volcanic regions with firefalls. Though it was rich in organic life, its metal content was somewhat rarer with much of it being present deep within the planet, which was a contrast to the world's sister planet.

As such, it was seen as a resource poor world compared to its sister planet with Romulus lacking fossil fuels, hard metals and radioactive.

History

Historians believe that Romulus and its sister world of Remus were in fact once a single large planetoid known as Romii. The biggest change that geologists have determined to have to Romii was five-point three billion years ago when another planetary body, which was at least sixty percent the size of Romii and in retrograde orbit, collided with the large planet. The impact stripped the outer crust from Romii and, in less then two hundred years, the ejecta had coalesced into a single body that would eventually cool to become the planet known as Romulus which would continue to spin with the force of that ancient catastrophic collision.

It was named by the Vulcan Exiles after an ancient myth of twin god-brothers.
