Personally I think the C-store variants will just be slightly fancier versions of the free ships we can get but with the added benefit of new skins (ie the cool raptor in the teasers) and a console power.
My Romulan ship knowledge is admittedly not great but this is how I see part of the ship line up:
The Bird of Prey will undoubtedly be the T1 ship and a D7 will likely be among the T2
T3 will likely be a D'Dedirex and a Mogai Escort with absolutely no idea if they will have dedicated science vessels.
T5 will likely have a refit version of the T3 versions of the Mogai and D'dedirex, along with that drone thing out of an episode I forget now.
That's what most of the Fed Z-Store ships are. So yeah, I figure we'll get several of those.
Let's take a closer look though for the sake of being thorough.
Teir1: Miranda(Light Cruiser) TOS Constitution NX Class Light Escort Blockade Runner Escort Andorian Light Escort Oberth Class Light Science Vessel
Weapons: 2/1 2/1 2/1 2/1 3/1 2/1
Bridge Officers: except blockade runner they all have 1 ensign slot of each. that has an extra tac ensign.
Consoles: 1/1/1 1/2/1 2/1/1 2/1/1 1/1/1 1/1/2
Hull Points: 10,000 12,000 10,000 11,000 10,000 10,000
Crew: 200 200 85 200 85 80
Turn Rate: 11.4 11.4 14 16 14 13
Shield Modifier 1 1 1 1 1 1.2
Special stuff: (none) Retrofit Phaser Banks Grappler Resonance Cascade Modulator Light Kumari Phaser Wing Cannons Enhanced Plasma Manifold
Bonus Power: (none) +3 All Power (none) +10 Weapons +5 Weapons +5 Auxiliary
Abilities: dual cannons (none) dual cannons dual cannons dual cannons Sensor Analysis
So yeah, The only free ship is Miranda at LT and it's pretty much the worst ship to have... It's not that it's bad really, it's that the (pay) options are better. I'm expecting Romulans to have at least one paid option at ensign level. Oberth actually has a really nice console.
Next is teir 2:
The cruisers are identical to each other except that the pay cruiser has a second sci console slot, ionized gas sensor, and an upgraded Eng Boff slot.
It's also true with the escorts. The pay escort has +1 eng console slots, a universal console and an upgraded Tac Boff slot.
The trend continues with the science vessel, it gets another console slot, a universal console, and an upgraded sci boff slot.
Um, yeah, I'm expecting something similar for Romulans.
I worked this up one day...of course none of it is confirmed...just my ideas
Romulan Star Empire Vessels
Kestrel (Shuttle seen in the vault and in DS9: ?In the Pale Moonlight)
Talon ? a match to the Captain?s Yacht or General?s Chariot
Centurion (level 1-10)
Bird Of Prey
Sub-Commander (level 11-20)
Rhien Class Attack Vessel
Generix Class Patrol Vessel
Talvath Class Infiltration Vessel
Commander Level (level 21-30)
Griffin Class Cruiser
Captain Level (level 31-40)
D?Deridex (Warbird Class)
Norexan (Tactical Fleet Cruiser)
Leahval Class Science Vessel
General Level (level 41-50)
Cehlaer Class Warbird
Eresis Class Attack Vessel
Shadow Class Infiltration Vessel
Tavara Class Tactical Warbird
Just some interesting facts about these classes
Rhienn Class - Built to outperform the UFP's "Escort" Class
Norexan Class - Seen "on screen" as the IRW Valdore
Scimitar -- I see this as the "Odyssey" of the RSE
Tavara Class -- A Warship in all respects...briefing from Starfleet Intelligence follows"
"The Tavara Class, although never encountered by a Starfleet vessel was observed during the last weeks of the Dominion War. This vessel is expected to take on our best ships and more as successfully engaged 2 Jem'Hadar Dreadnoughts. It is rumored that this vessel was designed as the Romulan answer to the Borg. It is known however that it was 5 forward firing weapons, two of which are high yield plasma torpedo launchers..."
so...again these are all just ideas for Romulan Vessels...
