  • Initial conflict occurred early 19th century when Vulcan Defense Force vessels first reached Romulan territory
    • Romulan forces immediately recognized them as their originators, kept their own identity hidden from them out of fear of being recognized as the Sundered (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
    • Somehow prompted by the actions of Quinn (VOY: "Death Wish")
  • Romulan efforts focused on repelling Vulcan vessels from their territory, otherwise largely a cold war (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
  • Occasional strikes made against Vulcan holdings purely to keep them contained, but no major battles for duration of the war (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
  • War ended early 20th century with the rise of Praetor Sartorix (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
    • Claimed to embedded sleeper agents that the goal was to redirect efforts from fighting Vulcans to shaping them, reforming their society through infiltration to a position where they would be appropriate for returning to the Sundered, reunifying them into a single people (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
      • To be done by directing society towards a more aggressive footing, disconnecting them from Surakian values through manipulation of the historical record, framing natural telepathic talents as shameful, etc. (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
    • In truth, the goal was to weaken the High Command through military action and Vulcan society as a whole to make them easier opposition to conquer, as was part of the Earth-Romulan War in 2156 (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
