#1 Romulan Griffin Class Cruiser (based upon the Star Trek: Armada design)

Vessel Type: Heavy Cruiser
Hull Strength: 37500
Shield Modifier: 0.95
Weapon Slots: x4 Fore, x4 Aft
Crew Count: 375
Console Layout: x4 Engineering, x2 Tactical, x3 Science
Device Slots: 4
Turn Rate: 14
Bridge Officers: x1 Commander Engineering, x1 Lieutenant Commander Science, x1 Lieutenant Tactical, x1 Lieutenant Engineering, x1 Ensign Tactical
Special: Sensor Jammer ~ Jams Enemy Sensors for 6 seconds. Enemy vessels unable to lock target.
Subnote: Rank and Tier are irrelevant up until Romulan Faction Release at which point this becomes a Tier 5 Retrofit.
Reason: It's one of the Armada Series better designs, and would add to the Romulan Fleet (or what is left of it). It easily looks 24th/25th century, keeping with the traditional Romulan design (though it more resembles the Deridex than it does the Mogai).



#2 Cardassian Hendor Class Warship (based upon the Raven Night Design via Nightsoft Entertainment); there is also a version of this avaliable as a MOD for ST:A2.

Vessel Type: Warship
Hull Strength: 43000
Shield Modifier: 1.0
Weapon Slots: x4 Fore, x4 Aft
Crew Count: 750
Console Layout: x4 Engineering, x3 Tactical, x2 Science
Device Slots: 4
Turn Rate: 8
Bridge Officers: x1 Commander Engineering, x1 Lieutenant Commander Tactical, x1 Lieutenant Science, x1 Lieutenant Engineering, x1 Ensign Tactical
Special: Shield Inversion Beam ~ Excessively Drains enemy target shields and adds them to own. Shield recharge between 33 and 66%.
Subnote: Rank and Tier are irrelevant up until Cardassian Faction Release at which point this becomes a Tier 5 Retrofit.
Reason: This thing is something that I always thought the Cardassians would build to combat the Klingon Negh'Var and Federation Sovereign. It typically sticks with traditional design (it has the bridge module, it has a pincer like tail, along with the wide wingspan and elements of both the Galor and Keldon. As with the Romulan suggestions, this would add to the Cardassian Fleet whilst at the same time, being a force not to be reckoned with.



#3 Romulan Shrike Class Escort (based upon the Star Trek: Armada design)

Vessel Type: Destroyer Escort
Hull Strength: 31000
Shield Modifier: 1.0
Weapon Slots: x4 Fore, x3 Aft
Crew Count: 75
Console Layout: x3 Engineering, x4 Tactical, x2 Science
Device Slots: 2
Turn Rate: 16
Bridge Officers: x1 Commander Tactical, x1 Lieutenant Commander Engineering, x1Lieutenant Tactical, x1 Lieutenant Engineering, x1 Ensign Science
Special: Romulan Spy ~ Temporarily disables multiple enemy systems of selected target in rotation. Lasts 8 Seconds.
Subnote: Rank and Tier are irrelevant up until Romulan Faction Release at which point this becomes a Tier 5 Retrofit.
Reason: It's another one of the Armada Series better designs, and would again add to the Romulan Fleet. It's small, quick and would easily be the Romulan equivilant of the Federation Sabre and Defiant, or Klingon Birds of Prey. Again, it looks like a 24th/25th century design too.
