I'll hold off on that until
1.) the revamp of the Emergency Power to X abilities is done
2.) I can actually test a ship with 40k hull, a battlecloak and a s**tload of goofy singularity abilites

Granted it's been awhile since I've seen every episode showing a D'Deridex, but I only recall seeing beams and torpedoes. No cannons.

If I'm wrong by all means please correct me with an ep/vid link.

... BALANCE.... all ships should be made to be possibly competitive... a use for sci and eng.. not just tactical characters in escorts or go home.... they MUST re-balance this entire game, make DPS pukers also GLASS cannons again, make an eng a tank (what a novel new unheard of concept) and make sci crowd control work and put there stats in the middle (some damage some hull mostly effects) or a "healer" (again novel new and unheard of.. at least by PWE and the cash grab team) if this can be done in well EVERY RPG going back to FF(1) then PWE with all the money they have made (and seem to want to keep making) sweeping changes to base stats and a TOTAL nerf on this escort/tac crap must take place.

At about the 1:25 marks 2 Romulan warbirds firing with what looks like cannons.

With regards to cannons I recall in episodes like TNG:"The Defector" they've only been seen using what amounts to single cannons, not duals.

YUP, just single cannons. No duals in sight*

Thank you sirs. I suppose it could be argued those were plasma torps, but they used the exact same disruptor VFX as Klingon BoPs (and I don't think the words "plasma torpedoes" were used in regards to Romulan armaments until DS9 and the Dominion War), so I'll happily concede the point.

The D'Deridex on Tribble is an engboat.

Cmdr eng, LTC, eng, LT eng, Ens Tac, Sci LT.

Turn rate of 5.


Just who thought this would be a good idea.

While we REAL Romulans spent our time farming and tagging Epohhs to build a new homeworld for the shattered remnants of our once glorious empire, we learned a lesson. That lesson is Turn Rates of 15 or higher, Battle Cloak or Regular Cloak, and DHCs mixed with high yield torps = success in space.

Give up on the D'Deridex. It's slated to be the Ticklebeam Cloakboat that the REAL Romulans make fun of as we pew pew pew right past it in our Mogais.
Lol I have noticed whatever these epohhs are -they hit you hard

The D'Deridex it not old -They have that Rom ship from the 2150s in the game thats OLD

How can it be a "bruiser cruiser" if you don't give it cannons, when cannons have both higher DPS and better energy efficiency.
