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.

It's just as I feared, there is no version of the trinity for the Romulans.

I will be optimistic though, this could lead to just as many ships but across all the styles of STO classes.

The concept art for the tier 5 class is absolutely amazing, just as the concept for the new Mogai was.

The tier 2 ship is absolutely terrible, same with the other new warbird that wasn't detailed in the post.

Will the Romulan ships have tier wide customization like the feds and klinks?
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, and T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

The tier 5 one looks interesting. I like the sound of it been bigger than the D'deridex. Its going to be huge! going to turn like a planet though lol.

still want to see that super mogai from the concept art. that one was amazing.

The Ha?apax looks cool, though I guess the final version is still being finalized.

Odd how the current Bird-of-Prey model (the frigate) isn't on the list at all. Hopefully it'll be an alternate skin for the T'liss.

And a different playstyle for each tier is a bit limiting. I want to have escorts all the way up, not just in one tier.

I suspect the Scimitar will be a c-store ship that will come in a 3 pack, with the thaloran device the 3-console bonus ability.

If the KDF can get a Fleet D7, the Feds should have a Fleet Exeter.

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.
