The Ressikans were a species from a long destroyed planet, whose sun went super nova in the 14th century. During the final years of their existence, the people of the Ressik community, launched a probe containing a memory record of their civilization and a musical instrument, the Ressikan flute in the hopes that knowledge of their civilization would not be lost.

This probe later encountered Jean-Luc Picard and transferred its memory record to him. All the memories of a man named Kamin were planted in his memory through the probe. Picard experienced the lifetime of Kamin’s memories as if he was living them himself. During this lifetime he learned to play the Ressikan flute.

The Romulan and Vulcan species are closely related, and are only distinguished by facial ridges that are more common in Romulans. Romulans are surprisingly different from their distant cousins both in physiology and in behavioral customs. Romulan technology includes the “cloaking device” allowing them stealth and making them formidable opponents.

After the Treaty of Algeron went into effect, the Romulans retreated into political and social isolation from the Federation.

By the 23rd century, the highest position of power was held by the Praetor, who presided over the Romulan Senate.
By the 24th century, the government of Romulus was dependent upon the Tal Shiar, the Romulan secret police, to maintain order and stability among both civilians and the military. The Tal Shiar was known for its brutal tactics, which included routine kidnapping, torture, and assassination.
