Overall I am more than just a bit disappointed with this.

Yet another supersized escort. When will the romulans get a real carrier, or a VA/LG level science ship? A universal commander slot would have gone quite a ways in alleviating that.

A bigger point of contention is that Thalaron Pulse. What the hell is the Romulan Republic, you know, the guys allied with the Federation and the Klingons, who have both banned those weapons, doing with a thalaron bfg?

Really?

How hard would it be to just make it a plasma type weapon? There is a whole slew of Trek technobable weapons and technologies that could be used for the bfg, but you still use the one type that is banned by everyone but the RSE.

While you kept the Scimitar as close to the movie one as you could, that weapon should not have been included.

I love super weapons, and like to use them....but thalaron weapons have throughout Star Trek and the STO storyline been taboo.

I think the ship on its own is pretty good, and you did a good job with it, but I don't think that any consideration was given of how this ship fits into STO (and I am not talking about Star Trek canon here, I am referring to the story put forth by Cryptic).

First two are @RA...there's no @VA Sci Vessel yet. Probably won't see it until after the Vet...perhaps later in the year when they do the Sela FE?
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

Yeah, because she's just going to kindly sit still for 12 seconds while your "combined Thalaron power" charges up.......

While I think it's packing enough fire power not to need 2 Hanger slots, a Variant in the 3 would be nice/better.

Unless you had a ship that wasn't as Tactically heavy which these are but had say more Science abilies, less tactic. All 3 ships are pretty much cookie kutter of one another. Same BOFF layout.

But 5 foreward weapons is a ton of firepower. Hell, I lay stuff out with 4 using Dual Hvy Cannons & Scatter Volley, everybody does unless u rainbow with bad tact mods. Also note the heavy Aft & I think it was 3 device slots. Plus all it's ship perks. 1 hanger will be enough for that thing. More ship variations & kill the illegal Thalaron & ur good

Okay I think the Federation Dreadnought needs some love so it can compete with the Romulan Dreadnought. I mean seriously compared to the romulan one the Federation one is just a Cruiser with Cannons and a cloak. it has less firepower, less console slots and a regular cloak that takes up a console slot. It hardly seems fair.

10hrs or so and the more I read the more I see a movie that might do just "ok" - not blockbuster day 1 and dive after that.

If I were in charge - I would rather have a 43k hull and a Uni Cmdr and 8 turn - and take all the sales + some contraversy - than have this so-so - meh - another tac ship nothing special response - that's building - or not building it would seem.

Would rather have people raving "needs a nerf" as opposed to sales just limping along - more people yelling nerf also means more people running out to buy the ship that needs a nerf and they know will never get a nerf - good for sales.

But that's just me.

Ok So here is my ideal configurations for the 3 ships:

Scimitar Class
Cmdr, LtCmdr, Lt, Lt, Ens

Falchion Class
Cmdr, LtCmdr, Lt, Lt, Ens
42,000 Hull (5% Increase)

Tulwar Class
Cmdr, LtCmdr, Lt, Lt, Ens
Sensor Analysis
(Or a 1.2 shield modifier or 2 hanger bays)

I think if we had seen something like these it would have pleased those of use who are sick of Star Tac Online and given Romulan players better ship variety as they are already saturated with Tac ships. Also anyone else find it downright strange that the Tulwar gets 5 Science consoles for a Tac ship!?

Yes this would be very good.
