I guess the OP is perfectly within his right to ask a question, but its not like you couldnt have taken 5 seconds and just googled it and come up with your answer.

Here is a Romulan Bird of Prey: http://www.upbids.net/asp/uploaded/2...b856Classn.jpg

Because war bird can be used to describe pretty much any large Romulan or Klingon warship. It isn't a specific ship design, unlike birds of prey, which are.

Romulan Bird of Prey was actually the first shown and known Bird of Prey if memory serves...

Klingon Bird of Prey which did not come out to much later. In the beginning, they looked exactly like the Romulan version.

Yes there was. It was part of the short-lived Klingon/Romulan alliance depicted in the TOS episode "The Enterprise Incident" where the Klingons supplied Romulans with more modern types of propulsion compared to the old impulse drive seen in "Balance of Terror" as well as ships and the Romulans paid them back with cloaking technology, which until that point, Klingons did not have.

I cant remember where I read it, and I can't even find it on Memory Alpha...

But it goes about how Romulans way back in the day were toying around with a cloaking device for a ship. When the Klingons got ahold of this information, they were able to steal/trade a ship from the Romulans.

Through reverse engineering, the Klingons were then able to make fleets of Bird-of-Prey's of the same design, and the name was just kept the same (different classifications, of course).

Whether that's true or not, its a liable back story =P

Because the Warbird is actually called D'deridex Class, and Cryptic decided to used that name.
