Mogai Heavy Warbird Retrofit
The Mogai Heavy Warbird Retrofit comes with a [Console - Universal - Ionized Particle Beam], which adds a negative ion charge to your ship's weapons, which leaves a negative ion charge on the target. The console itself allows the ship to fire a charge from the deflector dish, which causes damage on the target, and disables the engines of the all ships in a line between the attacking ship and the target. This attack is based on Auxiliary power levels.
Made famous by its appearance in Star Trek: Nemesis, the Mogai strongly resembles a falcon or other Bird-of-Prey. It boasts a massive wingspan with feather patterns along their length, extremely pointed Warp nacelles and a "beak"-like command section.
A Refit of the Mogai class, the Valdore has a noticeably more curved and armoured appearance, with a less broad wingspan, a different feather pattern on the wings and more prominent Warp nacelles. This costume becomes available after purchasing the Valdore Heavy Warbird from the C-Store for 1,000 .
If the Dhelan Warbird Retrofit offers more Science capabilities at the expense of Engineering, the Mogai Retrofit is the other way around. 3 Engineering Consoles, a Lieutenant Commander Engineering Bridge Officer slot and a Lieutenant Universal give the player a lot of potential Engineering options with which to boost the ship's potential durability.
While it boasts better Hull and Shield strength over the Dhelan, it does suffer in having a lower Turn rate and Inertia Rating - but it still far outclasses any Federation Cruiser or Klingon Battle Cruiser, while only being slightly slower than an Escort or Raptor.
Ultimately, the player is best served treating the Mogai as a far more durable Klingon Bird-of-Prey, using a Dual Heavy Cannon/Turret Build and the Battle Cloak to deliver a punishing Alpha-Strike, and trusting in the ship's Engineering abilities to survive any retaliation. The two-set Console bonus from the Ionized Particle Beam and the Valdore Heavy Warbird's Shield Absorbtive Frequency Generator is well worth it, upping the ship's weapon power and weapons drain resistance on top of the consoles' abilities.

Romulan starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.
All Romulan Warbird vessels are equipped with an advanced version of the cloaking device, a battle cloak, that can be activated whilst at Red Alert, giving the Mogai Heavy Warbird Retrofit a significant advantage.
Romulan Warbird vessels come with built-in Singularity abilities. These abilities do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Warbirds. These powers build in severity based on the charge built up by the ship's Singularity Core.
