Donatra (born 2327) was a female Romulan in the 24th century who served in the Imperial Fleet of the Romulan Star Empire. By 2379 she had ascended to Commander of the Third Fleet, and was captain of the IRW Valdore. In the wake of Shinzon's coup of the Empire Donatra rose in political prominence, and in 2380 declared herself the first Empress of the newly splintered Imperial Romulan State, which she ruled for five years until eventually reuniting with the Romulan
By 2367 Donatra was serving as Centurion and transferred to the IRW T'sarok, under command of Suran. He counselled the eager young officer that she should slow down, for that would be no shortage of enemies for her to destroy. Donatra rose to be Suran's first officer, and while in that position first encountered Admiral Braeg on a mission in the D'nossos system. Suran was leading a task force against the Tellati, and during in the battle they came across a warbird whose command staff had been killed; Donatra and two of her subordinates beamed aboard and brought the warbird back into the battle. Braeg immediately offered her command of one of his warbirds, but Donatra turned him down, too loyal to Suran to transfer.
