Weapons and equipment with a Romulan flair?
 
In a short while I'm going to be making a Romulan (Alien) Sci character, who's going to be flying Sci ships (since putting a Sci character in an Escort sounded silly). As the character is meant to be one who fled to the Federation after a Romulan attack on his home colony world (one of the ones attempting diplomatic relations with the Feds), I want him to be flying a ship that is obviously Federation, but still with some Romulan flavour to it. Are there any specific weapons systems, Boff powers, or consoles that would fill this dual affiliation?

If your set for escorts get the Multi Vector once u hit VA ofc, the romulans did have that ship captured from the federation for a while before our holografic crew took it back. Also its the only escort (i think o.o) wich has a lth commander station wich is prety good if your a sience captain i think. As for weaponary maybe youd use disruptor, since thats the romulans main weaponary :o , Bo setup would be something like most of escorts use these days.
As for another type of ship would be the vulcan sci ship wich as we know, has the most romulan flavour due to the fact that vulcans and romulans are long distant "cousins" kinda lol

As for your bof layout on both ships, the real question is what are you planing to do (that can also determine the ship type)
DPS - escorts,
crowd controll/support - science vessel
support/tanking - crusier

Disruptors, plasma torpedoes, the Reman shield, and a ship with the most bird-like lines and paint detailing you can find. Your crew might start to wonder where your loyalties lie though. ;)

Paint means NOTHING when the shield effects are active.

This is true, but the Starfleet/Fleet logo will still show up. I thought it was really cool that one of the fleet emblems available is a sword with wings, very reminiscent of the Romulan logo.

I love my Disruptor/Plasma torp/Reman Shield setup, and with the MACO engines and deflector it is a real beast!

Would a Science character work in an Escort? I didn't think that would be a very effective combination, which is why I was thinking of going with a Science ship this time. Also, I don't tend to bother with PvP, so I'm not too fussed about what the best builds for that are.

Science in an escort can be pretty brutal. Sensor scan and subnuc both work well with the escorts raw DPS.

Regarding escorts, the Defiant can be made to look decidedly "unstarfleet", and could almost look like a clipped Romulan Bird of Prey with the right setup, and it's got the cloak. Romulans love cloaking!

for a really quite romulan looking ship try:

* Deep space science vessel

- remove the "pod" for a more streamlined look (destiny hull looks very alien)
- choose the more alien nacelles (Oracle or Nimbus)
- equip with Reman prototype shields
- arm with disruptors or plasma beams (always beams if your going for looks)
- Arm with plasma torpedoes (you need a tac officer with high yield to get the heavy plasma torp effect)

or you could try this if your dont mind paying for it

* D'kyr science vessel

- equip BOTH the aux ship and the main for a much better look
- equip with Reman prototype shields (they make all ships look very romulan)
- arm with disruptors but it is equiped with white Type X plasma weapons as standard
- Arm with plasma torpedoes (you need a tac officer with high yield to get the heavy plasma torp effect)

Well, as an exiled Romulan scientist, seeking revenge against the Empire that attacked his colony, it sounds like flying an escort (particularly a Defiant) would be rather fun!
