Humanoid, light-sensitive native species of Remus, the sister planet to Romulus, who evolved in their world's dark-side hemisphere and have largely remained subjugated by their more powerful neighbors. They've also been kept apart from the Empire's politics and military command. As fierce and towering foot soldiers, however, Remans won numerous battles during the Dominion War under Shinzon, a covert human clone of Starfleet's Jean-Luc Picard who was abandoned with them. They later made up the bulk of his fighting force during his short-lived takeover of the Romulan Star Empire and failed attack on the Enterprise-E in a bid to conquer Earth.
