I agree. They desperately need some boost to hull repair (like the one that stacks, not the nerfed one) and damage. What's all that ctrh and ctrd good for if you don't do lots of damage? Also, some points in warp core proficiency, like +400, to compensate with the singularity loss would be nice.
Seriously, I bet that soon enough there will be some extra romulan boffs available at your friendly spire store, or whatever the next fleet thing will be. Ppl always need to be offered something better, like the lock box ships, now romulans, tomorrow who knows... Today something is slightly op, tomorrow there is something else, and that's how the money is made, lol.

Because the romulans are sneaky backstabers, every romulans ship should get the flanking bonus and it should be a 100% boost to damage. When they add the goatees, that should add a badassery bonus of 50% chance to placte - racial trait.
That might be the perfect solution. But flanking should also work on all 4 shield facings for romulans, or they never stand a chance against KDF or Fed characters....
