The ChR Gauntlet was a Romulan super-heavy cruiser active in the late 23rd century. (TOS novels: The Empty Chair, Dwellers in the Crucible)

HistoryEdit

Along with eight other Romulan Star Navy vessels the Gauntlet was deployed to quell a rebellion in the Artaleirh system in 2276. They were greeted by Free Rihannsu rebels, along with the USS Enterprise and the renegade Romulan vessel ChR Bloodwing, in a conflict that became known as the Battle of Artaleirh. Gauntlet and her sister ship ChR Esemar emerged from warp cloaked at the head of the fleet and stood by as the others attempted and failed to destroy cities on Artaleirh with orbital strikes, blocked by city-sized deflector shields employing hexicyclic waves. With Plan A having failed, the Imperial fleet attacked the defenders. Gauntlet pursued Bloodwing into the system's asteroid belt and lost a warp nacelle to an asteroid thrown by the smaller vessel's tractor beam, then was set upon by a swarm of civilian ships modified to carry weapons. (TOS - Rihannsu novel: The Empty Chair)

In 2281, Centurion Delar of the Gauntlet was chosen by Admiral-Superlative Meru'th to kidnap Federation Warrantors of Peace from Vulcan. (TOS novel: Dwellers in the Crucible)
