# 1 No Science ships for Romulans?
04-24-2013, 09:14 PM
So I must say. The whole expansion, legacy of Romulus = Awesome.
I mean I don't think there has been a single thing that has come out since I started
playing that has been better. Now that being said.

Where are the Science ships?I don't much care for the lower tier ships as we go through them so quickly, however at tier 5 there isn't a single science ship in the Romulan Fleet.

And if you claim the Ha?apax is science, well...your wrong. Sorry to put it bluntly.
A science ship is like a Nebula, Vesta, or Veranus. It must have a
commander level science to be considered a science. Putting a lot of consoles
that are science doesn't make it a science.

So i'll get off my soap box but I hope a dev notices this and maybe other true science
players or people who are willing to support the the supports so its noticed
that we don't yet have a ship.

I am willing to pay for it I just want one.

Things are not finalized yet. It's still a bit too early to say that the Romulan Warbirds will or won't have a couple with a science leaning.

I've actually been rather pleased with the Mogai having a nice slant towards science. From my experiences, Warbirds work very nicely in conjunction with tractor beams.

Granted, I think I'd rather see a boff layout like the patrol escort on the Mogai and a boff layout similar to a nebula on the D'Deridex. Those are the impressions I get with the canon and NPC versions of them, anyways.

I'm entirely anticipating that there will be a D'Deridex "3 pack", ala the Vesta pack that will have a Science-y version...

But yeah, depending on how well the launch goes - what the interest is in the Romulans - will determine what additional resources are allocated to them...
Maal, Klingon, Mogh - Vegar, Orion, Marauder - R'ebel, Romulan, Haakona
Willard the Rat, Reman, F.T'varo - Rave, J.Trill, Kar'Fi - Mysk, Gorn, Varanus
Kopor, Nausicaan, Guramba - Nivuh, Ferasan, B'rel - Venit, Lethean, M.Qin

Which is why they should be focusing on making the Romuln launch go well and make sure they can daw in as many players as possible.

I believe having a COMPLETE ship lineup is critical to this goal.

I'm familiar with that hull... I think Star Trek Legacy called its class a Harpy. They also had a miniature D'deridex without the bottom wings called a Raptor.

Im inclined to agree with the Op on this, having extra science console slots for say the science ship is a pretty useless bonus if you dont have a science commander boff slot to take advantage to them.
Also...if you dont have the commander slot of your ship class(eng/sci/tac).....then your train bridge offiicer skills are useless...eg: Gravity well 3.

This matter also effects ships like the bortasqu and vestas, both of which have BO slots that dont reflect the class of ship its supposed to be.

Quick idea...........ships with 3 variants..........universal comm slot.....problem solved

Romulan Veles , from star trek Armada ....
Projects a cloaking field around the ship, allowing teammates to fire from cloaked position.

Now that would be an awesome supporting ability, similar to the Honor-Guard masking field ....
