'''Romulan mines''' in the [[22nd century]] were armed with [[tricobalt explosive]]s. Upon detonation, they produced a [[thermokinetic explosion]] equivalent to one quarter of a [[kiloton]]. These anti-spacecraft explosive devices, utilized by the [[Romulan Star Empire]], were cloaked with primitive [[cloaking device]]s similar to those utilized by the [[Suliban]] of the same era, but operating on a different [[phase variance]]. The mines were similar in design to [[Triton class]] [[spatial torpedo]]es used by [[United Earth]] around the same time. ({{ENT|Minefield}}) The power matrix of the mine used bulky and primitive [[boridium]] [[power cell]]s. ({{ENT|Babel One}})

In [[2152]], {{EnterpriseNX}} encountered a field of these mines, which were cloaked, surrounding a planet that the Romulan Star Empire had annexed. The explosion of one such device caused a significant amount of damage to ''Enterprise''{{'}}s port forequarter. Another mine lodged itself on the hull, dangerously close to the ship's starboard [[impulse reactor]], but failed to detonate. [[Lieutenant]] [[Malcolm Reed]] and {{dis|Captain|rank}} [[Jonathan Archer]] attempted to disarm the mine, but were unable to do so before two {{dis|Romulan Bird-of-Prey|22nd century|Romulan Birds-of-Prey}} arrived, demanding that ''Enterprise'' leave the system. Archer and Reed managed to separate the section of [[hull plating]] where the mine was attached to the rest of the ship, and detonate the mine at a safe distance from the vessel.
