The concept is not based on the Romulan Bird of Prey from Star Trek, but rather on real birds, utilizing biomimicry in design. The aircraft, shown below, will have a tail and wings that split into prongs and act in the way “feathers” would to provide active flight controls. The blended wing to fuselage joint mimics the aerodynamic arch of an eagle or a falcon.
