Great job cryptic!

Especially Jamjamz, that Mogai art design is the best looking thing added to the game yet. I can't see a single thing I could try and call an objective flaw. The warbird in the video is pretty cool too.

The uniforms are looking great too.

But what are those drones? Are they the engineer tools or something more Iconian?

I hope they end up being Romulan drones. The current ones are boring. Need some new styles.

I think they will be that mysterious new enemy. Whenever iconian war machines or something else, we don't know.

The new styling for the Romulan ships - looks classic and elegant as well as simply put, badass!

Great job art team!

Hmm, I'm hoping the D'deridex-class has got some love, so it looks more like this rather than this. It still looks like the current one we have in-game from the images shown.

Ouch, your definitely right. hopefully the devs see this and touch up the D'deridex...the Mogai isn't all that great either.

I don't think those 'drones' are the engineering ones. The details on them make them seem far too large to be small, summoned helpers. They're probably mechanical ground enemies, probably of the same faction that has the green-glowy ships.

As to what these 'silent enemies' are, they could be the result of early romulan borg experiments. The same stuff that upgraded the Narada and was much later used in the 'Sharien's Swords' mission could have escaped. Perhaps these self-repairing intelligent machines, born of borg technology, acquired their own goals or were programmed by someone to reproduce and attack colonies.

Interesting ideas, it reminded me of the race that created V'ger, which might be another option?

And wow they butchered the D'derix nacelles so badly. Well I guess they look cool, but it would be nice to have the originals.

My money says the drones are Iconian and that everything they have is robotic so they can be all mysterious and manipulative and not get their hands dirty.

here is a good shot of the detailing on the side of the D'deridex, the in game ship model is quite lacking.
