* FantasticNamingConvention: The fix takes the convention established in the ''Literature/{{Rihannsu}}'' books and applies it retroactively to a number of Romulan characters that are given OnlyOneName in the official material. For example, [[Film/StarTrek Nero]] becomes Nero ir-Benheris tr'Sihalian.

''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10482094/1/Legacy-of-ch-Rihan Legacy of ch'Rihan]]'' is a ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' fanfic by Tropers/StarSword, a {{novelization}} of the Romulan tutorial levels inspired by the prompt for Literary Challenge #42 on the STO forums.

It's January 2409, harvest-time in the village of i'Haanikh on the planet Virinat. Morgan t'Thavrau, the best vintner and brewer on the planet, has always been secretive about her past, a past which violently collides with the present when the [[StateSec Tal'Shiar]] intrude upon the Tapping festival. These chapters alternate with "interludes" explaining how Morgan ended up on Virinat in the first place.

The fic borrows even more heavily from the Romulan worldbuilding groundwork laid down by Creator/DianeDuane's novels than the actual game does, with among other things canonical characters with OnlyOneName given surnames with ''Literature/{{Rihannsu}}'' stylization.

!!This work contains examples of the following tropes:
* AdaptationExpansion: The first chapter is actually set prior to the first mission of the tutorial.
* CallToAgriculture: Morgan was the NumberTwo of a Romulan Star Navy warbird at the time of Hobus, but she's been farming on Virinat for 21 years.
* CallBack: There's a mention of a Ferengi named Pel who runs the spaceport in Ahalris on Virinat. Pel was a Ferengi female who pulled a SweetPollyOliver in Series/DS9: "[[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS02E07RulesOfAcquisition Rules of Acquisition]]".
* ExplosiveDecompression: The first interlude has the communications officer get sucked out of the bridge through a hull breach.
* FantasticNamingConventions: The fix takes the convention established in the ''Literature/{{Rihannsu}}'' books and applies it retroactively to a number of Romulan characters that are given OnlyOneName in the official material. For example, [[Film/StarTrek Nero]] becomes Nero ir-Benheris tr'Sihalian.
* FantasticRacism: Several of the Rihannsu in i'Haanikh display at least mild Romulan supremacism. D'Vex at least recognizes that it's not exactly a good attitude to have.
-->'''Morgan:''' You got a problem with Havrannsu, DíVex?\\
'''D'Vex:''' Hrmph, Iím old-fashioned. Bloody [[FantasticSlurs goblins]] are all right but I wouldnít want my daughter to marry one.
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Words and sometimes entire phrases of Rihannsu liberally pepper the dialog, and nowhere are the words "Romulan" and "Reman" found ("Rihannsu" and "Havrannsu" are used instead).
* KlingonsLoveShakespeare: There's an offhand mention that despite [[FantasticRacism their usual disdain for anything not of Rihan origin]], the Rihannsu developed a taste for tomatoes when they got their hands on some during the Empire's alliance with the Federation in the Dominion War.
* LudicrousGibs: In the first interlude:
--> "A structural member explodes out of the floor and the operations officer vanishes in a fountain of copper-green."
* MythologyGag: To the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' film, borrowing a line which the author mentioned in a forum post just kills him every time.
--> '''Nero:''' Hello, Saeihr, I'm Nero.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Morgan is 49, which is barely middle-aged for the Vulcan-descended Romulans, but twenty-one years working in field and vineyard aged her prematurely.
