I bet... hmmmm...
I bet it'll be a hybrid science-cruiser, able to mount regular cannons. It'll probably turn at least as fast as a Galaxy-class, or maybe a little slower, but it'll probably have a bit more hull to it.
Formerly GT-01. Runnin' a small lite-RP casual fleet called "The Voyagers"! Message me in-game at either Salen@GT01 or Xavok@GT01 if yer interested.

Allow me to be the first to post this thread which will invariably get posted more times in the future.

We all know beams are bad at Deeps. And that Big Capitol Ships turn like whales.

The D'Deridex is a bigger whale than the Galaxy. And will likely be utilizing Beams.

So let's just cut this off at the pass right now and start asking Cryptic to stop favoring the Mogai and other Escorts and give some love to the D'Deridex! Buff it now! Before it's too late!

Well played.

That's why I made my Fleet Ambassador into a pseudo, almost-a-D'deridex. I had a lot of fun making it, and look forward to when I can make it on my Romulans.

How can anyone say the D'Deridex needs a buff when the poor escort captain are clear right at calling it op. It's ability to heal needs a nerf. The Hull regen rate is way too high and the diplomacy human boffs with leadership brakes the game.

However cannon evidence points to the ability to equip canons .

Which means Cryptic got it wrong ... again .

Also if you'll notice toward the end of the clip , Worf is such a smooth MOFO he can track a cloaked Warbird .
He's so dreamy !
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???
... you know after another 3 story arc remasters, crafting revamp, skills revamp, PVP upgrade ...
*note : the 2-4 year guesstimate came out of comparing Cryptic's Dev speed and that of a snail . Sadly the snail won .

Give me the current NPC Warbird with XII purple gear, a RCS console and the right boffs and I will show you the true meaning of pawnage.

Because if its a cruiser, which it obviously will be, it won't be worth the effort of leveling a Romulan character to 50, unless you're in it for some RP lulz.

Well, that could be argued as being a single cannon. If it was shooting two 'bullets' of energy, from two different spots each time, then yes, DHCs/DCs, but this will get normal cruiser weapons.
