The origins of the ''Scimitar'' remain a mystery. While the interior and control surfaces are Reman in design, it seems unlikely that a group of slaves would be able to construct a vessel of the ''Scimitar's'' size and abilities in secret. The design of the ship, as well as the military history of it's first and only commander, have lead some to believe that it may have originated in the [[Dominion]].

What is known is that the vessel was first seen in 2379 as the flagship of the self-appointed new Praetor of the Romulan Empire, a Reman slave leader known as Shinzon. Following a failed attempt to kidnap Captain [[Jean-Luc Picard|Picard]], he chased the ''Enterprise'' into the Bassen Rift, using the ''Scimitar's'' weapons to try and disable the ''Enterprise''. During the course of the battle both vessels suffered severe damage (the Scimitar taking damage was largely a result of Shinzon's incompetence, because he had the Scimitar, cloaked, attack the Enterprise at such a close ranger that it fire blindly and it), even more so when Picard attempted to destroy the ''Scimitar'' by [[ramming]] it (which the Scimitar could have avoided if Shinzon had move back in full reverse, but instead he had it wallow like a beached wail). With his mental and physical health deteriorating rapidly, Shinzon attempted to use the thalaron weapon on the ''Enterprise'' and continue on to destroy [[Earth]]; this attempt was thwarted when [[Data]], now aboard the ''Scimitar'', destroyed the thalaron generator. The ''Scimitar'' was lost in the ensuing explosion.
