The lack of stats makes me sad.

Also the D'deridex is slower than the Galaxy class but designed to appeal to Battle Cruiser players? Whut? Trying to comprehend that is giving me a headache since the appeal of Battle Cruisers is the ability to mount duel cannons on a cruiser combined with the mobility to actually use duel cannons.

I wonder if something like the T'liss class if we will have the option of using the Enterprise version instead of the TOS version. If its C-Store only I probably won't care enough to buy it for the short time I'd be in it. I wonder if it will even be available as a T5 refit/retrofit, the Connie people might flip a lid if there are T5 TOS/Ent ships running around.

Wish there was some information on if there would be Romulan ships that carry fighters. Looks like the Ha'apax has a rather large auxiliary craft.

Love to see the interiors on these.

While I am still a little sad that some Romulan designs like from SFC3 and Armada aren't available to Cryptic, I'm going to give some kudos to the ship builders, these are looking hot!

I'm actually stoked about the TOS ship. I just think it is one of the cooler looking things from that series. If there's a higher tier version of it in the C-Store... shoot, I just might bite on that.

Of course I'll have to buy the C-Store D'Deridex. No surprise that once again the cool ship people actually want is condemned to Tier IV hell, as that's been standard practice.

Interesting. Most of the ships look nice, except the T'liss. This one is really ugly. I hope it's just a start, because we haven't seen science ships yet.

They'll be in the C-stores I think.
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.

Doesn't seem like there will be more free ships. We will have to pay for the rest.

...and, that is why I will become a Federation allied Romulan.

Instead of trying to use the Romulan ships, I will stick to the Federation escorts. If the speed of the Federation cruisers are any indication, the Romulan ships will be floating bricks in space. I never thought there would be something slower than a Federation cruiser.

As long as the other aspects of the faction are fine, the allied choosing option will makeup for what is lost.

Me, I got the exact opposite impression - I'm 95% certain that we'll have to pay to upgrade our ships through the C-Store, and the comparisons are only there to let you choose your T5 ship or something.

If this is the case, I'm going to have to grind up A LOT of zen - or just use Vestas (planning on getting the bundle, it'll take 21 days of maximum refining on my 3 characters at the current prices, and I'll have 40 zen left to spare - not counting any reserves I may have at the moment, which would be quite insignificant)

Does this mean no Romulan Fleet ships?

(I hope so... I wouldn't want to see Fleet D'deridex requiring T5 shipyard...)
