# 1 Rommy Vet et al
07-16-2013, 07:30 PM
Looks nice (I like the streamline feel). Pretty much the same as the KDF Vet ship otherwise. Not as good as other Rommy options, but that speaks to how good those are compared to KDF alternatives since KDF Vet ship is still solid option for KDF.

On Holo, using the Singularity Overdrive would put BO/CRF on a cooldown. It doesn't on tribble. No idea if this was intended change.

I haven't tested aux2batt w/the vet ship console in awhile, but it used to reduce the shield vamp ability when used w/tech doffs.

Warbird consoles won't fit. No idea if this is WaD.

Has KDF Vet ship power levels and shield/hull specs. Still uses Singularity core and Rommy BC. So, it's better than KDF Vet ship in that regard. No idea if this WaD.

Singularity Overdrive and Vet console Tac Ability don't put one another into cooldown. I hit both at same time, but didn't see any plasma damage (from the Console) in quick scan of the logs. Not sure how these are supposed to interact w/each other.

The game seems to consider it an Escort for all intent and purposes, which may be why Warbird consoles don't fit in. In fact, I tried to transfer my Tier 1 T'varo console in, only to see it turned into a Science Shield boosting console instead. That was wierd.

The ship store description of the Daenos Heavy Destroyer did not show anything about having a Romulan Battle Cloak, or the ability to use singularity powers.

When accessing the Ship customization interface, the veteran ship material was not available despite the ship defaulting with it - you only get Romulan 1, 2 and 2 (red). Despite me wanting to change the windows, I decided to leave it alone ince I wanted to keep the veteran material texture.

Using the Tactical Mode console seems to yield no result on my end - aside from some smoke particle, no transformation of geometry changes can be seen. I did see the 'buff' appear along with the others from set bonuses, etc; and I also noticed the power increase, but that was it (note: that was on the New Romulus space map, so I had nothing to shoot at to verify the plasma lotus at the time of this post).

The Heavy Destroyer equips a singularity core, but incurs none of the usual power penalities Romulan warbirds usually incur. The change, for someone used to playing Romulan warbirds for months, was actually rather startling. Nice, in a "too good to be true will probably be nerfed" way.

Yes there is something wrong with the Vet ship. It is supposed to be a warbird, however it is listed under "escorts' in the ship vendor and the power levels are that of a federation ship vs the lower power levels of a romulan ship, even though it equips a singularity core..

Also, there is no "transformation" with this ship like the other 2 veteran ships in the game. When going to tactical mode, the ship does NOT transform whatsoever and the lotus fires directly from the nose of the ship...I hope this is a bug.

* It's listed under the Escort ship category.
* It utilizes a Federation ship icon in the Status menu.
* It has no "warp out of system" sounds.
* It makes sounds when it changes to Tactical mode, but other than some smoke there doesn't seem to be anything moving.

On the KDF side, it's listed under "other" and has a Bird of Prey icon in the ship selection menu.

I couldn't at first either. Ask the ship vendor for "another" vet token (as if you had ever had one) and you should be able to claim it.

Okay......seems there's something seriously messed up here.
Before you posted this I would've guessed they just forgot to give every TRIBBLE vet char his token but now...
