Sweet, thanks Brandon!
So, I am sitting alongside a Caitian Atrox Carrier at Earth Spacedock, and I think to myself "Man, that ship has a lot of windows".

Then it occurs to me that it makes a lot of sense, because cats love to sit in windows.

I presume certain C-Store ships still yield the fleet module discount on purchasing fleet vessels? The entry was less than specific about how much of a markdown.

I do like the idea that Romulans can't use T5 allied ships and are limited to their own ships at end-game. I think this usefully maintains their distinctiveness as a faction at the end-game.

Of course, they willneed more ships, because from what I can see, their Tier 5 ships are:

1. Ha'apax, Fleet Ha'apax, Fleet Ha'apax Refit
2. T'varo Retrofit, Fleet T'varo Retrofit
3. Dhelan Retrofit, Fleet Dhelan Retrofit
4. Mogai Retrofit, Fleet Mogai Retrofit
5. D'Deridex Retrofit, Fleet D'Deridex Retrofit.

There's basically five Romulan ships out there, plus some upgrades to those five ships. even the Klingons have more.

So Dhelan are Escorts and Mogai are Destroyers.

I can dig it.

Why do the D'ridthau and Valdore classes look so different from how they appear in the Legacy Pack pics? The Valdore should look like this.
Please fix the Foundry lag!

I hope however the final stats of the ships turn out, that Romulans will have access to dedicated science vessels... it seems very Romulan to me. And Carriers please ! And timeships !

I also like the T5 restriction for allied ships, well done !
Only Internet users deal in absolutes !

That could be a Fleet version.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Great blog! Even greater pictures!

I'll also throw my support behind dedicated Romulan science ships. Romulan raiders would be nice, too
