I'm hoping there will be some sort of carrier for the Romulans, this would just be too perfect

Honestly I can see the Scimitar as one.. It pretty much was one in Nemesis, it had a full compliment of Scorpion Fighters in one of its bays o_O.

My Romulan ship knowledge is admittedly not great but this is how I see part of the ship line up:

The Bird of Prey will undoubtedly be the T1 ship and a D7 will likely be among the T2
T3 will likely be a D'Dedirex and a Mogai Escort with absolutely no idea if they will have dedicated science vessels.
T5 will likely have a refit version of the T3 versions of the Mogai and D'dedirex, along with that drone thing out of an episode I forget now.
That's what most of the Fed Z-Store ships are. So yeah, I figure we'll get several of those.

Let's take a closer look though for the sake of being thorough.

Teir1: Miranda(Light Cruiser) TOS Constitution NX Class Light Escort Blockade Runner Escort Andorian Light Escort Oberth Class Light Science Vessel
Weapons: 2/1 2/1 2/1 2/1 3/1 2/1
Bridge Officers: except blockade runner they all have 1 ensign slot of each. that has an extra tac ensign.
Consoles: 1/1/1 1/2/1 2/1/1 2/1/1 1/1/1 1/1/2
Hull Points: 10,000 12,000 10,000 11,000 10,000 10,000
Crew: 200 200 85 200 85 80
Turn Rate: 11.4 11.4 14 16 14 13
Shield Modifier 1 1 1 1 1 1.2
Special stuff: (none) Retrofit Phaser Banks Grappler Resonance Cascade Modulator Light Kumari Phaser Wing Cannons Enhanced Plasma Manifold
Bonus Power: (none) +3 All Power (none) +10 Weapons +5 Weapons +5 Auxiliary
Abilities: dual cannons (none) dual cannons dual cannons dual cannons Sensor Analysis

So yeah, The only free ship is Miranda at LT and it's pretty much the worst ship to have... It's not that it's bad really, it's that the (pay) options are better. I'm expecting Romulans to have at least one paid option at ensign level. Oberth actually has a really nice console.

Next is teir 2:
The cruisers are identical to each other except that the pay cruiser has a second sci console slot, ionized gas sensor, and an upgraded Eng Boff slot.

It's also true with the escorts. The pay escort has +1 eng console slots, a universal console and an upgraded Tac Boff slot.

The trend continues with the science vessel, it gets another console slot, a universal console, and an upgraded sci boff slot.

Um, yeah, I'm expecting something similar for Romulans.

Yeah, it will most likely be the Romulan ODyssey-Bortas equivalent.

I worked this up one day...of course none of it is confirmed...just my ideas

Romulan Star Empire Vessels
  • Shuttles
  • Kestrel (Shuttle seen in the vault and in DS9: ?In the Pale Moonlight)
  • Talon ? a match to the Captain?s Yacht or General?s Chariot
  • Scorpion Fighter
  • Centurion (level 1-10)
  • Bird Of Prey
  • Sub-Commander (level 11-20)
  • Rhien Class Attack Vessel
  • Generix Class Patrol Vessel
  • Talvath Class Infiltration Vessel
  • Commander Level (level 21-30)
  • Griffin Class Cruiser
  • Serkas Class
  • Shrike Class
  • Captain Level (level 31-40)
  • D?Deridex (Warbird Class)
  • Norexan (Tactical Fleet Cruiser)
  • Leahval Class Science Vessel
  • General Level (level 41-50)
  • Cehlaer Class Warbird
  • Eresis Class Attack Vessel
  • Shadow Class Infiltration Vessel
  • Tavara Class Tactical Warbird
  • Scimitar Class


Just some interesting facts about these classes
Rhienn Class - Built to outperform the UFP's "Escort" Class
Norexan Class - Seen "on screen" as the IRW Valdore
Scimitar -- I see this as the "Odyssey" of the RSE
Tavara Class -- A Warship in all respects...briefing from Starfleet Intelligence follows"

"The Tavara Class, although never encountered by a Starfleet vessel was observed during the last weeks of the Dominion War. This vessel is expected to take on our best ships and more as successfully engaged 2 Jem'Hadar Dreadnoughts. It is rumored that this vessel was designed as the Romulan answer to the Borg. It is known however that it was 5 forward firing weapons, two of which are high yield plasma torpedo launchers..."

so...again these are all just ideas for Romulan Vessels...

I must admit that I'm looking forward to seeing the Romulan ships. And there are many ships needed.

We will see what we see.

The Grade B ships will be in the C Store. The Grade A ships will be in lockboxes.
