So Romulan ships aren't listed as Sci, Tac or Eng but it's own class: The Warbird. The warbird its suggested capability is tied to the singularity core of the ship.
How on Earth is this going to work? And is this the forerunner of the suggested idea of introducing various Warp Cores into ships to increase their flexibility. Myself who is mainly a cruiser captain is cautiously optimistic. By having various swappable/ modifiable core types Cruiser sized ships may finally be able to ramp up their turn and weapons power far greater than they are now.

I'm pretty excited to check out the new warp cores. They have done a LOT of work on this season! I remember somebody pitching an idea that involved warp cores and computer cores, I guess they took some of the suggestion!

Well, not exactly.
The suggestion you're thinking of basically worked a lot like Base construction in City of Heroes, if I remember it correctly.
Warp Cores would provide a certain amount of Power and Computer Cores would provide a certain amount of Control (CPU was the term used, I believe). The kinds of Cores you could use would depend on the size, class, and rank of the ship.
Every component that you wanted to slot in would have a power requirement and a control requirement, and deduct what it needed from the available Power and Control provided by the Cores. Once you used up all of the available Power and/or Control, you couldn't slot anything else.
This could be a baby step in that direction, I admit. But I think I like this way better. A lot of room for customization and optimization, with less complexity (and headache from trying to put together a working configuration).
Makes me wonder how they'd implement Computer Cores, IF they decided to...
