The T'Pau was decommissioned in 2364, and was later sent to Surplus Depot Z15 at Qualor II, where it was registered on stardate 41334.2, and stationed at Section-18-Gamma-12. At that time, it was stripped of materiel, armaments and sensors - its navigational deflector array being routed to the holding vessel USS Tripoli.
In 2368, the array was found in debris from a Ferengi cargo shuttle. Upon investigation at Qualor II, it was discovered that the ship had been stolen from its resting place in the surplus depot by a Ferengi arms dealer named Omag, who transferred it to a Barolian freighter near Galorndon Core. The Barolians later transferred it to the Romulans, who in turn, refurbished the vessel and used as part of a "peace" envoy, a ploy used by the Romulans in their failed attempt to conquer Vulcan. The ship was later destroyed by a Romulan warbird to prevent the crew of the USS Enterprise-D from taking custody of it and the Romulan troops aboard. (TNG: "Unification I", "Unification II")
