I agree we need more romulan dedicated science ships that aren't either a part of another ship, having no real identity of its own.

Have a singularity core, have combat cloak.

1 or 2 more would be fine + a full carrier.

But honestly KDF need new ships before fed or rommies get a new one.

I agree, if there were some way to please people who cry about powercreep and romulans being overpowered while still giving new content, Devs would have figured it out a long time ago. Maybe adding the Cruiser commands will help appease the people who are griping, since the Romulans don't get those, at all. but then again i'm sure most of the people who are crying foul fly escorts.

heh, powercreep is inevitable. Otherwise people would have no reason to acquire the new shiny.

Just because it is inevitable, doesn't mean people will still complain about it.

As a wise man once said: MMOs are fueled by nerd rage.

People would complain about something either way.

Other ship classes and sci ships in the other factions - even if it's severly limited - offer a choice when it comes to Boff seating (ie ships). Rom science simply does not have this, not even in the form of a single ensign level universal boff station.

Where is the universal boff slot on the fleet Ha'nom?

Lock Box ships do not count for any faction for the sole reason that their availability is theoretically limited.

As for 'be patient', go talk to the Klingons about that...
First off, you didn't start this thread, so who are you to magically know if the original poster wants suggestions or not. There are no end-game Romulan science vessels, so we're giving suggestions to cope until there are dedicated science vessels.
Whining and berating people trying to give helpful advice isn't adding any content to this thread.

As the OP here, I can say I didn't ask for tips or build ideas. THAT being said I appreciate the ideas, as they helped me to modify the Tulwar into the Sci-mitar. The initial desire of the post was to try and get some attention from Devs or someone who can pass that info on to them. I appreciate good advice, but sometimes people got a little pushy on presenting builds as alternatives or seeming to flame wanting a Science Ship that wasn't something else first.

This has been great discussion so far though, lets try to keep it going.

Frankly, I too find the lack of science Warbirds somewhat sad for Romulans. Especially when I always got the feeling from the shows that combat science was basically the Romulan's "hat" so to speak. They developed things like high yield plasma torpedoes and cloaking devices because they were resource weaker than the other two main factions and so used their "smarts" to keep on the cutting edge.

I think Cryptic should be looking to add ships like this:

http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Shadow_class

Just read the description it practically describes STO science boff abilities on this ship, and the inter-phase cloak would be epic fun for pvp (admittedly a bit overpowered, but where is the fun in NOT being overpowered ).

Phasing cloak? The one in game is basically a way of hiding in plain sight. You can't shoot at all until you drop the cloak.
