The lack of ship stats should make this thread a calm and rational place of discussion.......

And no Scimitar as well I see.

glad a little bit of details regarding ships and i hope the stats get released next week or 2

Stats are still being finalized, so we're not able to share them just yet :) You'll be able to see them on Tribble though once you are able to start testing Romulan gameplay via the ship store.

That was significantly lighter on details than I was hoping for and also quite revealing. It seems that if the rumors that we can use allied vessels are true then this very limited selection of ships may be the reason.

I'm not saying I'm completely dissapointed, but the fact that the Romulan ships go from "Escort" to "Battleship" as you tier up is somewhat dissapointing. I'll also admit I'd hoped to have a Mogai at T5, not T3.

Are there at least plans to give us different visualization options with the free ships? Or do we need to buy costumes/refits from the C-Store?

Indeed, kind sir, indeed. As all ladies and gentlemen of the forums understand, that the unveiling of the ship stats should be of a later time due to balance, this shall provide great ground for an afternoon's conversation.

will the romulan cloak be different from the standard, battle, or enhanced battle cloaks? While I'm all for factional uniqueness and not infringing on KDF gameplay. Rommies are THE cloaking guys from the IP. More details on the cloak would be great. COuld it be slightly better, faster, slower dunno just different from KDf cloaks.

Battle cloak would be amazing for warbirds.

I suspected that there will only be one ship per tier (for free that is). I hope the gazillion c-store options coming have something for every playstyle then...meaning science, cruiser and escort flavor.

How many variants will we see inside each ship line? Hopefully at least 2; Three would be nice.

From the blog:

Other Romulan ships, such as Refits and Retrofits of these vessels, as well as completely unique ships, will be available for purchase through the C-Store.
