The Romulan-Vulcan War was a conflict between the Romulans and Vulcans which started sometime before the 21st century and lasted a hundred years.

The incident which sparked the war was inadvertently caused by Quinn, who was trying to commit suicide. His events created a misunderstanding between the Romulans and Vulcans which was never clarified.

In 2372, Q referenced this event to Kathryn Janeway, describing it as a "self destructive stunt" that demonstrated Quinn's harm to others. (VOY: "Death Wish")

The war was not named on-screen. It is unclear when exactly this war happened, though Quinn was imprisoned for three hundred years before 2372. Q's account might even refer to the Time of Awakening.
In the first draft script of "Death Wish", the war was said to have been waged between the Romulans and the Klingons, with no mention of the Vulcans having been involved.



In The Way of D'era, the Romulan-Vulcan War took place from the Earth year 1270 to 1370 after the wormhole which had brought them to Romulus reappeared and then collapsed after a hundred years, thereby putting an end to the conflict. The defeat of the Star Empire saw a weakening of the position of the Emperor of the Romulan Star Empire, which in turn made the position of Praetor rise in power.
