The Scorpion class fighter was actually a Reman invention, designed to maximise the combat capability of Praetor Shinzon's one off warbird, the Scimitar and whilst the Romulan Star Empire didn't develop any other Scimitar class vessels, the Scorpion became immensely popular, both with planetary defence forces and with the Navy in general. In 2380, the Kyantor, S'yvar and Vreenak class vessels were refitted with an adapted hangar bay to be able to accommodate the Scorpion class fighter.

Since then it has proven vastly popular, as the two man light fighter is very fast to manufacture and in large numbers or if supporting a starship is extremely dangerous. They have also proven to be small enough, fast enough and manoeuvrable that many starships have trouble hitting them with either phasers or torpedoes, which does make up for the fact that the shields the Scorpion was originally fitted with were so utterly useless that they nearly got removed.
