I don't know who originally drew this ship so I could give them credit. But I did the Assault Mode alterations (I'm not that good with computer graphics)
I called this ship the Graes'Ilaisnen Warbird (Old Warrior). I think it was originally called the D'vort Warbird?

Okay,I found it. Is is the Griffin, and it is a desig from Star Trek: StarFleet Command III. I'm sure that Cryptic could use the little clause that any Starship okay by CBS as being official StarTrek starships can be used in this game.
The other two 1000 day ships only have 9 consoles, I don't think this should have special treatment. Although IMO they should all get 10 anyway.
Yeah, they really should get 10 consoles or at least make some type of fleet version.
The Griffin class was in SFC 3 but I believe it was originally from Star Trek Armada, if something was before that I don't know of. Its been in multiple games under multiple publishers so I imagine it would be costly to obtain.
Please no, I don't want another Peghqu' where some nodes pop out of somewhere where they don't look like they belong. I would rather them take their time and create a new ship with a more interesting transformation like the Chimera.
Someone suggested some wing movement and such, which I imagine could make it like a small version of the Scimitar when it was getting read to fire its Thalaron weapon.
I was originally thinking the same thing. In fact giving the 1000 day ship the thelaron weapon would be cool, of course as scaled down version of the weapon. But t he transformable wing design would be cool. I was looking at teh picture and could imagine that section popping up to reveal the plasma lance weapon, with an identical pod coming out on the ship's lower hull.
Odds are the specs of the ship will be identical to the Pegh'qu, except it will have a Plasma Lotus instead of Disruptor. The Chimera and Pegh'qu are identical except the Pegh'qu has battle cloak and slightly weaker shields. Since the Romulan version would obviously have battle cloak as well, it would also take the shield penalty to (supposedly) balance it. They could change it up and do a hull penalty, but the ships will still be 99% the same, just different skin and using plasma.
So apparently Shockwave you didn't look at the stats for the ship in the OP. I did change the damage type to plasma, it got rid of the bonus effect of the phaser and disruptor for the residual plasma damage. I also used a lesser shield mod and went with the Enhanced Battle Cloak, but applied penalties for using the cloak. You need to read before you type.
