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 dual cannons.
I'd like clarification on this myself, as the statement does seem to be contradictory. Probably have to wait till they hit Tribble for testing or they do the stats blog though to find out.
So is the first picture with the Scorpion-tail some kind of advanced Mogai then?
I'm pretty sure that's the tier 2 Dhelan ship with another ship and engine trails above it.
And since there are no stats or any real info what will be at tier 5, I'll try and keep this to background and art stuff.
First, I know its the gimic for the race, but I wish you didn't have a singularity core in the tier 1 warbird. While its up for debate as to what power core was used in the first warbirds, it wasn't a singularity drive. I know you can say they were refitted, but one has to ask why drag a 100 year old wreck out to active service and then conduct a major refit to put in a modern power core. Eh, just my pet peeve.
Aside from that, the art looks nice, and the Ha?apax is interesting, though I'll wait to see an in-game model for final comments. I still hope I can have a D?deridex at end game though.
LOL at the reference to the D'Deredix having firepower equivalent to a Galaxy-class. That's not something to boast about in STO
The Science ship (an upscaled redress of the Shuttle) which appeared in the episode where Geordi/Ro got phase cloaked, would be a very good addition, maybe as a C-Store vessel for the Roms to give them a Science ship.
Given the more limited number of canon ships available for the Romulans, I'd like to see Cryptic innovate and see what their design team can come up with to pad out the roster a bit more.
