What if Romulans could use Fed or KDF ships...

But they didn't look like Fed or KDF ships when Romulans used them?

Ie. all escorts get recostumed as mogais, all cruisers get recostumed as D'deridexes, all Destroyers and Dreadnaughts become Scimitar.

The tricky thing is probably rigging the Mogai for MVAM, the D'Deridex for saucer sep, and the Scimitar for spinal lance, Siege mode, and Tactical Mode.

But the idea is that Romulans use Fed and KDF ships but get Romulan models swapped in, editable at the tailor, etc.

And then if you want a more unique Romulan model, you could get actual Romulan ships.

That.... would just give them Romulan ships with Fed or KDF stats and Boff slots... what?

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

This. I'm tired of this entitlement garbage, and the misleading belief that homogenization brings in more money. Romulan ships for romulans, federation ships for starfleet, and klingon ships for klingons. No more of this watered down, seizure inducing, grand stretches to repeatedly justify non-faction ships being in a governments navy. These are governments, not pirate confederations. There are doctrines, standardizations, and so on involved. There should have never been a non faction lockbox ship.

For what it's worth, I agree.

nope.

new model = almost the same amount of work to be done, but as you are proposing = NO PAYMENTS for the people which already unlocked them

better to create and sell whole new ships.

Agreed, the only situation in which a Navy would use a foreign warship is limited and the only ships you could possibly make one of those arguments for is the Tholian ships and even then they would have simply seized the ship and redesigned or retrofitted an existing ship to utilize the unique tech.

Like the Romulan Alliance System? Of course you do, it sounds fine to you because you aren't Romulans, you're FED or KDF who are going to make a Romulan alt, it makes a HUGE difference in perspective.

It seems pretty much confirmed that Romulans will be flying Federation and Klingon ships. I doubt that's up for discussion. That part is the foregone conclusion, not my suggestion.

My suggestion is to make those ships look like Romulan ship classes when a Romulan flies them.

I doubt any amount of forum discussion at this point will deter Cryptic from letting Romulans command Excelsiors. My suggestion is to sub the model out for a Romulan ship rather than simply have Romulans commanding Excelsiors.

Your idea only takes care of the aesthetic problem, and while i appreciate your concern for not wanting me to tear my eyes out if i see a Romulan in a Defiant, it doesn't actually solve the problem of THE ROMULANS SHOULDN"T BE FLYING OUR DAMN SHIPS!

And as someone else mentioned it would be about the same amount of work as building an all new ship... Hell thats HOW they make new ships:

1. Take a premade ship
2. Create new skin
3. Put new skin on old ship
4. Sell "new" ship


I personally look very much forward to the Romulans faction i never found the kdf interesting past the first mission and look forward to making a second character (im a pretty simple guy) Tho if you knew how long it takes me to make up as name you would understand why i have only played ONE character over the last 3 yrs
