- See Gal Gath'thong for the mountain range on Romulus.
The ChR Gal Gath'thong (also known as the Tellus, Algeron or Nhorazz) was a Vas Hatham-class Romulan starship in service in the late 23rd century. In the 2260s, the Gal Gath'thong was commanded by Commander Keras and served as the Praetor's flagship. (CCG: These Are the Voyages)
In 2266, the Gal Gath'thong was ordered to cross the Romulan Neutral Zone and test the Federation's defenses by attacking several Earth outposts along the zone, using her powerful plasma torpedoes. However, the destruction of several outposts drew the Federation's own flagship, the Constitution-class starship USS Enterprise into the region to investigate.
Following a cat-and-mouse chase across the Neutral Zone in which both ships suffered damage, the Enterprise was finally able to gain the upper hand in the engagement near the Icarus IV comet and was able to disable the Gal Gath'thong. In accordance with Romulan tradition, Keras activated the ship's self destruct sequence, killing himself and his crew instantly, rather than be captured. (TOS episode: "Balance of Terror")

Presumably, the ship only has one official name, but the other names will be listed here as possible alternate names. This isn't necessarily a contradiction, as the ship could have been renamed or borne nicknames that create the multiple references.
