Ships: All romulan ships have 'tier 6' type design. You simply cannot compare the performance of an = tier KDF and romulan ship.. its a gap in performance as vast there is between a Fed Nebula and Fed Vesta.
Matter/Antimatter Warp Cores so far seem better than Singularity Cores. And Romulan ships all turn slow compared to their cross faction rivals, and have subsystem power issues that I don't find all that much fun micromanaging.

I'm not convinced their ships are better at all.

If that wasn't enough, we see the talshiar lockbox ships are literally making every tier 5 kdf ship obsolete when it comes to cruisers and escorts.
Those ships are still inferior to the JHAS. And everyone can fly a Tal'Shiar lockbox ship. So, meh.

having the 'tier 6' design at end game
Tier 6 is a misnomer that needs to end right here. Right now. Tier 6, if it EVER gets made, will follow the same design rules every other tier followed. That means another fore weapon slot on each style of ship. And another device slot possibly. Along with more across the board stats on hull and shield strength and the like. None of these ships are Tier 6 and calling them that is just going to confuse the entire issue.

Call em Tier 5+ or Tier 5.75 or whatever. They're not T6.
