The TNG Writer's Manual (4th Season) makes it clear that Romulan spacecraft generate energy by means of harnessing the x-ray emissions from a captive quantum singularity.

In the TNG : "Timescape" we see both the exterior and a partial interior of a Romulan engine core. The singularity itself is missing but this still allows us to make some reasonable assumptions based on what remains:

  • The singularity sits in the centre of the engine core, held in place by a series of (black?) magnetic confinement rings. These prevent it from colliding with the walls of the chamber when the ship moves.

enter image description here

  • The core itself is flooded with some sort of gas which accelerates towards the gravitic attraction of the singularity at high speeds, creating extreme heat and high levels of energetic x-ray emissions.

enter image description here

  • These x-ray emissions are somehow collected, converted into usable energy and this is then channelled into the ship's warp engines in much the same way that the energy created by a normal Federation Matter/Anti-Matter reaction is used.
