99% of so called factual statistics are made up on the spot.

No, it really doesn't.

Breen ships are possessed of odd sweeping sections with jutting wings, and have a general asymmetry to them, like so:

It adds to the alien mystique of the Breen, how their ships don't look quite like anything else any of the other major galactic powers field. They're strange floating glyph-like shapes, aloof and foreboding.

Whereas the Scimitar has a much smoother appearance overall, despite the small number of protuberances it has. It is also, like every other Romulan ship I can think of, symmetrical:

More importantly, though, despite being classified as a Reman ship, the Scimitar importantly follows the guideline that almost all Romulan ships have: it looks like a bird. A large, angry bird.
Even the active firing mode of it's main gun makes it look like an avian making an aggressive display:

And just to drive my point home, here it is, pictured with several other Romulan ships. Pardon my saying so, but it doesn't look out of place in the slightest.

@sorceror01 It kinda looks a little out of place honestly no smooth lines like the other 3


If I had to choose between it being from the breen or romulan i would go rom but i would have to give it a bit of thought . it's not quite cut and dry easy to pick

The Scimitar is more Reman-influenced than it is Romulan influenced in it's design aesthetics.

And it definitely doesn't look like someone took the letter "G" and made a ship out of it like the Breen did.

If that's true, then I really hope to never see you post in a "Scimitar Needs Buffs" thread. Ever.



(A lot of folks said the same about the D'Deridex, and yet, tons of threads trashing its stats popped up anyways).

The Scimitar is a pure machine of war. Its designed to kill, kill again then kill again just to be sure. Its Reman not Romulan so although it has the same hawklike looks of Romulan ships it has a more angular and harsh look which suits the Reman way.

Romulan ships despite their military mentality also serve as Romulans exploration and study ships. The Scimitar is a weapon of war nothing else.

But yeah, if we discount the whole add on and everything along with it, everything else is older.

Everyone want new content, but there are some new content to do, and it takes more than 1months to make new content.
Bah! That stuff only matters if you care about it. I realize Cryptic wants us all to have Fed/Rom/KDF characters but surprise! Not everyone cares to do that.
