Mission: Purgatory's Shadow. Season 2 Episode 7
Location: Romulan side of the Neutral zone

The ship seemed to come out of nowhere. At one moment space had been empty, now a ship loomed menacingly close. It was sleek and looked fast. Most importantly, it did not register on any database.

The Romulan border patrol captain considered her options.

“Send a message to the Senate to inform them of our visitor. Send a copy to the Tal Shiar. They need to know about this too.”

She studied the view screen. “What is it's exact position?”

“It is just inside the Neutral Zone,” came the answer from Helm.

I wonder if that is by design or pure chance, she wondered. “Hail it.”

“Hailing frequencies are open,” her Communications Officer reported. “It is not responding.”

So, we have an unknown vessel sitting in space. “Shields....”

She never finished the order. The beam which burst from the vessel was as deadly as it was unexpected. It cut through the Romulan vessel's hull like it was tissue paper. The artificial singularity which was at the heart of its warp system exploded in a supernova. The vessel disappeared in a brilliant burst of energy.
