You make like Remans were absolute slaves, toiling in slave collars and drudging in the dilithium mines. Since we know nothing about Remans other than that, what's to say they weren't a space-fairing race when the Romulans first encountered them?

Or maybe the Remans were educated enough to do tasks like construction and manufacturing, which over time some distinguished themselves were given positions of importance and got to design technologies that better suited Reman ergonomic needs?
NO to ARC!

Actually we DO know that. The Scimitar was constructed in a shipyard manned by Remans. Sure a lot of Remans did end up doing manual labor, but not all of them...

Also Remans were regularly used as expendable ground troops and bodyguards.
HAIL HYDRA!

Maybe we could get some of the ships from "Birth of the Federation". The light cruiser and strike cruiser were nice looking. Models need more detail obviously:

Remans ARE Romulans, just vampire Romulans who don't drink blood or have immortality.

Assuming they aren't just mutated Romulans which seems to me the best explanation for their origin, even if they were space faring that would've been centuries ago.
Possibly millenia. After generations of slavery all the trappings of civilisation tend to vanish.

Gee I don't know the bit where the senate said all Remans are dirty, filthy slaves with no rights and should go back to toiling in the mines after being used to fight the Dominion in Nemesis?

That one IS cool...

But I doubt we'll ever see it.

They have to negotiate for the right to use it from another company...

With all the headaches They had trying to get the rights to use the Aventine, it's not very likely.

Lets not forget the Romulan Shuttle from DS9 "The Pale Moonlight"

http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Romulan_shuttle

Birth Of The Federation had some Romulan designs as well:

Cruiser:

Strike Cruiser:
http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/R%27tan_class


Battle Cruiser:
http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/D%27dredar_class

Other ST games had original Romulan ships as well that allow Cryptic to draw many inspirations from. Romulans should have a pretty good starting line up
