The Romulan's first battleship, the commissoning of which was kept in a shroud of secrecy at the time. The First Romulan-Klingon War having recently ended, one of the peace treaty stipulations was a forced ban of no new military ship creation on the Romulans for a period of 3 months. The Ka'joss Llekhi (BlackLight), had already been under construction, but was delayed due to the ban.
The building Arcturan Syndicate and Ikaran crisis however forced the Romulans to go ahead and commission the ship before the ban was lifted, and so it was done with no ceremony. With the Blacklight now in service, the balance of power once again shifted to favor the Romulans even more after their victory over the Klingons.
During the final stages of the Ikaran War, the Blacklight (now commanded by Nniol) flew point in the final attack, and incurred a lot of damage to the Tholian defense force before finally succumbing to the superior numbers. Although destroyed, it allowed the remainder of the combined-Empire fleet to continue their plan with less resistance.
