Just flew it, good looking ship, like valdore and tvaro had a baby <3
Bugs were mentioned in another thread

Ship feels more lighter than Penghu, stats are same but probly because of its agile look

One thing.. Plasma lotus is regular CYAN plasma color, make it Romulan plasma by damage, dot(plasma dot+ disruptor debuff) and looks please.

It does look very nice indeed.
Very much like the Republis Symbol turned into a powerful ship.

there are some very good-looking grey tones with the Vet skin

And a direct comparison between light and dark... (all three images show top side)

...shows how tastefully the glowy-bits were placed.

Both the ship and the vet skin are wonderfu pieces of art.

Just noticed this ship has only 9 consoles.

I just went from looking forward to flying it, to..no thanks, EVERY single romulan fleet ship I have now is better.

This "vet" ship is a joke. It is not better than a mirror universe ship, low shield mod, slow turnrate (destroyer or not).

Its an inferior ship, which saddens me because I spent so much $$ on a lifetime, just to get a mirror universe ship, copy and past of the klingon vet ship

Its just unfortunate the stats reflect that of a mirror universe ship, and it only has 9 console slots..lol

Another subpar reward for people who spend hundreds on a lifetime.

Well, can't even try it since I STLL can't select it in the shipyard, despite meeting the criteria

It has the exact same setup as the other 2 vet ships. Why would it be any different? That would be unfair to the other factions. And 14 is a slow turnrate?

The Vet ships are not the best of the best, but they are decent ships, and more than capable.

The only thing you should be sad about is your unrealistic expectations, especially considering there were already 2 vet ships to base them off of.

I think the main issue is the shield modifier of the vet ships, which becomes quite obvious here.

Examples:

Fleet Armitage: 0.99
Chimera: 0.9
Daeinos: 0.83
Fleet Mogai: 1.1

Especially the difference between the fleet Mogai and the Daienos is extremely strong. Both have the same turn rate, almost the same hull strength, even the console layout is roughly comparable, but the Fleet Mogai gets a 10th console and a very powerful set bonus with both native special console.

Personally I have to say, that there is no point in ever using the Romulan vet ship if you have access to a shipyard with Fleet Mogai (T3) and that is something very sad.

For those upset about lack of visuals ... You realize that the visuals will be added later and not present during testing ... right? (or at this stage anyway)

I can respect it lacking the singularity powers .... but if that's the case ... I wonder if it should have a standard warp core. (although mine has the singularity powers)

been a bit of talk to the devs in several podcasts about "How about a fleet version of the vet ship?"

Devs have not slapped the thought down.. distinct possibility.. but not right away...
Release 8.5 "STO The Next Generation"

Let the happy old bug stomping commence, along with refinement toward enhancing each factions play experience!

Love the ship and how she handles. Can't wait to see her animations completed as well as hull patterns, etc.
