# 1 New Romulan Ship
07-18-2011, 05:30 AM
The Griffin from Star Trek Armada.


My ABSOLOUTE favourite ship from that game and it would make a great addition to the Romulan fleet . So far I see only, Bird of Prey's, Mogai's, Warbird's and Scimitar's....thats it

I don't know anything about it, but it looks neat, and I'll support anything that would cut down the number of Mogais I have to deal with. I hate those things. I was really hoping they'd have a new Romulan ship with Cloaked Intentions... but, no dice

The Griffin would be cool, but Cryptic does not own the rights for the designs.

Are you mad? That thing has TWO NECKS?!?!?! Do you have any idea how dangerous and stupid it is for starships to be designed that way? You can ask ANYone on this forum. No dev would ever go for a ship design like this!

And now for a serious answer. I like the design. sort of fits between a BoP and a Mogai? Only it's from another game, so probably a no go for licensing reasons.

Yeah, those Mogai can suffocate on bettle snuff. Cloaking mine targ droppings.

Sadly, I don't think Cryptic can use the ships from the Armada series, but it'd be nice to see some more variety in ships. I imagine the soonest we'll see new NPC faction ships will be Cardassian/Dominion true way ships with the next featured episode series.

Which would be nice, since I friggin' love Cardassians and their ship designs. Dominion, less so, despite being a rabid fan of the color purple.

But I'd positively love to see more Romulan vessels, especially ones which take them and the Klingon design style further apart. I find that Star Trek 3 really screwed the pooch on that one, not mentioning that the bird of prey was supposed to have been a stolen Romulan vessel.

I still, despite being raised on TNG and Deep Space Nine, still miss the grays of the old school imperial KDF. It'd help make those green blooded psychopaths we love so much all that more unique as well.

But they could start designing their own ships...you know add something other than the frigate class (bird-of-prey), fighter class (Scorpion, which arguably are Reman in design), escort (Mogai), or battleship class (D'deridex).

Or even in preparation for when the Romulans become a playable species. Because we all know how it turned out when the Klingons had no choice in what ships to fly.

The only ships they have added that weren't Federation or Klingon in design were the Jem'Hadar destroyer and the Cardassian Hideki class that I can think of. I think that's suffice to say the game is lacking in the variety of ships you can face department

Well if Cryptic doesn't own the rights to it, please do! The Griffin is awesome and in my opinion, will go very well with the Romulan fleet.
