So if you really want to make that D'D turn there are ways.
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.

The only ships in the game that is better than a D'Deridex are the Scimitar and Recluse.

So it is deliberate and by design
Romulans do not have Cruisers

Federation and Klingons do
Here is the link

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=890841

Cruisers
Ships that fall into this category receive all four Cruiser Commands. Below is a list of ships that are classified as Cruisers:
Federation

Battle Cruisers
Ships that fall into this category receive three Cruiser Commands: Command - Strategic Maneuvering, Command - Shield Frequency Modulation and Command - Weapon System Efficiency. Below is a list of ships that are classified as Battle Cruisers:
Federation
Klingon Empire

For as overpowered as Romulan Warbirds are, they are the last things in the game that need more gaming boosts.

Im not sure which blows my mind more... that there are people that like the D'deridex or that there are people whining that romulans need cruiser powers

You seem to be applying the same brush to all Romulan warbirds, when there are only a couple that have the traditional "cruiser" characteristics. The D'deridex is one of them.
The only others are Ha'apax and Haakona.

Also, not every cruiser on Federation and Klingon got the same amount of powers. The TOS 1966 Constitution got all four powers (!), the D7/K'tinga only got 3 of them.

This post answers your question if you want that big ship to turn u are gonna have to give up some tankiness to make it happean. Which is a fair trade off keeps the game balanced also another person hit the nail on the head it's a big ship it's not made to fly like an escort if you had a ship that could tank and do great dps there would be no point In having other ships in game now would they.

Well, running 1 atb instead of 2 is good enough for most pvp engagements cmobined with decloack and the allmighty crth crthd buff romulan boffs come with youll have plenty of firepower to end the engagement. If it takes much longer than that youre allready in a situation where disengaging is the best thing to do. At least most times.
tactical initiative plus singulrity overload can go a long way to compensate for the loss of the secont atb.
Cruisers ftw!

D'deridex not an cruiser?

Ok, than the Bird Of Prey is not an escort, it is a Bird Of Prey.
Raptors are not heavy escort, they are raptors.

It is called:
D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser, which makes it battle cruiser
