The Romulan Star Navy, also known as the Romulan Imperial Fleet or Grand Fleet, and commonly referred to as Imperial armada or space fleet was the space force of the Romulan Star Empire. The Star Navy operated fleets of warbirds, birds-of-prey and other starships and was often at the forefront of the Star Empire's contacts with the Klingon Empire, United Federation of Planets and other external affairs. (TLE novel: Serpents Among the Ruins, TOS novel: The Empty Chair, et al.)
- The name Romulan Star Navy comes from usage in FASA RPG module: Romulan Ship Recognition Manual and Last Unicorn RPG module: The Way of D'era: The Romulan Star Empire. Romulan Imperial Fleet comes from the ST reference: Starship Spotter and the term space force was used to refer to the Romulan fleet by a Klingon in the TOS comic: "Alien Spotlight: Romulans". The star navy may exist as a branch of the larger Romulan military organisation, the Romulan Guard.

In 2380, the Imperial Fleet was divided between those forces loyal to the new Praetor, Tal'Aura, and those loyal to Commander Donatra, commanding officer of the IRW Valdore. The segments of the Imperial Fleet loyal to Donatra later captured Achernar Prime and several other farming worlds, providing the military of the newly-declared Imperial Romulan State.
