Personally I'd like to see a Temporal Core implemented, something like the Adapted Borg Core for the Tal Shiar ships ... and I still can't believe the Voth got a cloak as the 2 pc console bonus first ...
You know the more I think about it the more I think the Talvath actually needs a cloak just to be competitive with the warbirds. If we compare it to the Fleet Mogai, it has 1 more turn and a slightly better seating arrangement for sci but worse hull and shields. Compare it to the Fleet Dhelan and Dhelan wins hands down statwise.
So what does the Talvath offer over the warbirds? Tipler Cylinder, 40 extra base power, and a 3 pc temporal warfare bonus. Tipler takes a console slot though, and if I used that slot for a Plasmonic Leech on a warbird, I'd actually be ahead powerwise. So what it comes down to is is tipler that much better than singularity powers it's worth giving up a cloak for? I don't think so (in some situations I'd actually prefer singularity powers).

"Wouldn't it be nice if we were older,
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long..."
Sorry, the title instantly made me think of the Beach Boys.
Don't apologize... that is exactly what I thought when I read the thread's title.
More on topic, now that I know, I actually think it is nice that the Temporal ships don't have the whole Singularity mechanic built in. I was initially put out at the idea that the Romulan ships wouldn't cloak and wouldn't have the Singularity Core... then I looked at it another way:
The Temporal ships are the only option Romulans have to use a Warp Core on a faction ship. No other Romulan ship has that capability, and there are already some solid ship options that do have the Singularity Core. The Temporal ships give Romulan players another option, which is nice.
If people said what their thread was about in the topic title?
I'm pretty sure someone said that the reason the Rom Temporal ships have a warp core is that they wanted them to be balanced with the Fed and KDF temporal ships.
What browser are you using? In Firefox I just get a tool tip that says the title. Seriously, this is a pet peev of mine, I don't really care about Rom Temporal ships and I probably wouldn't have bothered clicking on this thread if the OP had said what it was in the title (no offense to the OP). Heck I know a guy on another forum who just titles his threads with the first two words of his post, so they're all like "hey guys..." or "we need..." that really bugs me.
