Which Romulan Ships Will We Have To Buy?
 
I havent been on in awhile, so I did a search for this and couldnt find anything. Which Romulan ships are we going to have to purchase? Since there are so very few out there to begin with anyways? Will they be making us buy the Romulan BoP or D'Deridex? Tried to look this up on the info, ask craptic, Romulan front page, etc,, all the info was rather limited and generic.

And this is why we *need* the Tal Shiar.

No information has been disclosed to the (re)public. :P

No solid info, but I'm guessing there will be D'deridex or BoP Retrofits. Probably refits between tiers of ships. Perhaps a Romulan Carrier. (Scimitar with Scorpion Fighters)

The BoP will probably be the starter ship. The D'deridex and Mogai will likely be Captain level, but T5 Retrofits will be available in the C-store. The TOS version of the BoP will be C-store for sure.

Warbird (battleship), TOS War Eagle (with bird art), Scout hull (Enterprise era), and looks like the Valdore, and one sketch that could be cruiser, Battle Cruiser, Romulan Time Ship, Vet reward ship. Thats it.

You know, I'd give my eyeteeth to get a redux of some of the old FASA RPG Romulan designs. I'd pay real money, and *this* cheap-arse Scotsman doesn't pry open the wallet for just anything, ya know.

Here's another thought:

Given that you have 3 careers (Tactical, Engineer, Science), would each ship class (since there are so few canon Romulan ships), come in 3 different flavors depending on your chosen career? A D'deridex Class Cruiser, or D'deridex Class Escort for example.

I have a hard time seeing how they would be able to model 3 brand new ships PER TIER for the faction. There will most likely be alot of repeating going on during the leveling. At max level, i'm certain there will be Fleet Retrofits of both the Valdore and D'deridex, and possibly the ENT Bird of Prey. Canon only has one known Romulan Science ship, which I assume will make an appearance at some point (not ingame as of yet).

TOS Bird of Prey is likely to be the starter ship (levels 0-9). You need 3 ships for 10-19, 3 more for 20-29, 3 more for 30-39, and another 3 for 40-50. That's atleast 13 ships that they would need to design. Some of which they can copy from NPCs, but some will have to be brand new. Or a different "flavor" of an existing one.

Probably the Scimitar would be the Romulan equivalent Vice Admiral C-store ship if I had to guess.

All of them. If you want 10 consoles at least. If I wer you though, I'd just fly the JHAS with your Romulan. It's the best there is at what it does.
