Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird
This page is for the playable ship. For the NPC vessel, see Scimitar Dreadnought
The Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird is a Vice Admiral (Tier 5) level Dreadnought Warbird. Players can purchase this ship through the Cryptic Store at a cost of 2,500 , or a 3-pack of Dreadnought variants for 5,000 .
Overview[edit | edit source]
Though equipped with numerous weapons and housing a contingent of Scorpion Fighters, the original Scimitar’s key feature was the ability to utilize thalaron radiation as a terrifying weapon. Shinzon first used a smaller thalaron radiation device to kill the entire Romulan Senate, and then relied on the Scimitar’s strength to back his overthrow of the Romulan government.
Praetor Shinzon attempted to deploy the Scimitar’s thalaron generator in the Battle in the Bassen Rift against the U.S.S. Enterprise-E and two Mogai-class Heavy Warbirds, but the Enterprise's crew prevented the weapon from being fired and destroyed the Scimitar – albeit at a heavy cost.
Since the Battle of the Bassen Rift, both the Tal Shiar and the Romulan Republic have developed new variants based on the original ship design. The Scimitar-class, Falchion-class, and Tulwar-class of Romulan Dreadnought Warbirds represent the Romulan Republic’s latest iterations on this technology.
The Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird comes with a [Console - Universal - Cloaked Barrage], which allows the ship to fire its weapons while cloaked for a brief period of time, based on the ship's Singularity Charge. After the effect expires, the ship's weapons power will be significantly drained.
Variants[edit | edit source]
Scimitar class[edit | edit source]
- Main Article: Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird
The Scimitar-class closely resembles the original model, designed for raw firepower.
As the ship was of Reman design, Dreadnought Warbirds are more angular when compares to the curved shapes of Romulan Warbirds. One other distinctive feature is that the warp nacelles are located on the main hull, where most Romulan vessels carry the nacelles on the wings, usually near the tips. The main hull is also more square and stubby than traditional Romulan vessels.
Falchion class[edit | edit source]
- Main Article: Falchion Dreadnought Warbird
The Falchion-class has a more steadfast focus, making them ideal for Engineering captains.
At first glance, the Falchion class appears very similar to the Scimitar class. There is a more distinctive deflector array on the top of the nose, and large green bussard collectors on the warp nacelles. Various slots on the ends of the wings also glow.
Tulwar class[edit | edit source]
- Main Article: Tulwar Dreadnought Warbird
The Tulwar-class has a higher emphasis on Science, but retains much of its offensive potency.
The most distinctive feature on the Tulwar class of Dreadnought Warbirds is that the pylons, wing tips and warp nacelle covers all having open gaps within them, giving a more lightweight appearance.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird can utilize [Console - Universal - Secondary Shields] from the Falchion Dreadnought Warbird (Tier 5, C-Store, 2500 ), as well as the [Console - Universal - Singularity Distributor Unit] from the Tulwar Dreadnought Warbird (Tier 5, C-Store, 2500 ). Equipping two or all three consoles will grant the 2-piece or 3-piece item set bonus from the Advanced Scimitar Systems Set.
If all three consoles are equipped, player gains access to:
The Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird has a battle cloak that allows the player to cloak during combat.
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.
Hangar Bay[edit | edit source]
This ship includes a single hanger bay equipped with [Hangar - Scorpion Fighters] which can be launched in waves, gaining strength the longer they stay in battle. Scorpion Fighters are armed with Plasma Pulse Cannons and Plasma Torpedo Launchers.
Dreadnought Warbirds are also the only ships that can equip [Hangar - Romulan Drone Ship]. Romulan Drone ships utilize two unique pieces of technology. The first is Multi-Spectral Emitters, which allow them to take on the appearance of a limited variety of other types of ships. To support this technology, Romulan Drone ships are also equipped with Tri-Phasic Emitters. These change the frequency of the Drone Ship’s disruptors to emulate the weapon signatures of other weapon types, causing them to change both visually and functionally.
Carrier Commands[edit source]
Carrier commands are a capability of all Carriers, Escort Carriers and Flight-Deck Cruisers. Specifically, the term Carrier Commands refers to a set of four space abilities that are innate to these types of vessel.
These four abilities allow a player to control carrier pets in space. When activated they set the combat of all carrier pets that are currently summoned to either aggressive or defensive, and can make them move out to the currently selected target or back to the player's ship. Carrier commands are not used to summon or unsummon carrier pets.
