# 1 Romulan Ship Ideas
03-21-2013, 11:25 PM
I am very pleased to see Cryptic listening to their players for once and actually doing a Romulan faction expansion. So I wanted to give a few ideas of possible Romulan ships along with their ship powers to help rival both Federation and KDF Ships. I really really hope that the Romulan are allies with neither.

Romulan D7 Battlecruiser

For the TOS enthusiasts however the Romulans enjoyed a brief alliance and technological trade with the Klingons providing them with some of their ship designs. Since the old skool version of the Bird of Pray is going to be in the game, why not a Romulan version of the D7?

Special Console: Enhanced K-Photon Torpedo - Klingon Photon Torpedoes have been of a higher yield then Federation ones because of their affinity for less safety precautions. This has resulted in a higher yield and damage photon torpedo that could help to make photons viable in the game again.

Griffin Class Escort

The Griffin Class Escort is medium sized Escort with powerful weapons in its frontal arc and is designed for situations where a full sized D'Deridex would be too slow or cumbersome.

Special Console: Enhanced Sensor Placation Module - This is similar to Anti-Matter Spread on the Federation Venture Class, creating an AoE Sensor Scramble and jam, as well as diminishing the ability of ships to target beyond 5km while the ability is active.

Battlehawk Class

A medium range attack cruiser that is able to turn quickly, bringing front disruptors and plasma torpedoes to bare.

Draconairus Class Bird of Pray

Designed for fast, efficent strikes and a campaign of "psychological warefare" with its striking, bird-like appearance. The Draconairus carries two powerful forward mounted plasma cannons which are capable of powerful bursts.

Special Console: Plasma Cannon Lance - Similar to the Phaser Lance and Disruptor Lance on the Galaxy-X and Gurumba ships but fires two weaker lances with a much more powerful DoT then traditional plasma weapons and increased slow.

That Droneship from ENT that can disguise itself as other ships.

I'm hoping they will soon reveal they didn't forget the Romulan D7.


But I gotten a few ideas for Romulan ships, like a transition from the D7, to a D7 modification, a early 23rd Century Warbird, and eventually to the D'Deridex that Cryptic might be interesting.

I'll have to make a quick sketch.

Ya, but that's why they can't use it. It belongs to a different company.

Don't get me wrong though, it was deffinately based off a real show model:

I think you may have the Griffin confused with the Talon Class from Star Trek: Armada. It is true that the Griffin was used in both Starfleet Command and Star Trek: Armada but it also featured in Star Trek Legacy which was made by Bethesda and not Activision so the actual ship design I would guess belongs to CBS because they endorsed both different companies.

Well "Paramount" originally until they were taken over by CBS. So I am pretty sure that the Griffin can be used because it's owned by CBS and not the individual game company. Plus, its a pretty popular design. That is why I included it in the list.

I hope they do forget the Romulan D7. That ship was just a silly excuse to recycle a shot from an earlier episode.

I say give the ship creation devs a free reign with a few criteria and go to town.

The Imperial Class, somewhat modified would be reminiscent of Romulan designs.

Ive seen this beauty around for a few years, the Kerchan Warbird. Longer than the D'deridex but less mass I think, sort of the way they did the Galaxy to the Sovereign.
