The D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit is a Vice Admiral (Tier 5) level Warbird. This ship is available to Romulan Republic players from the Cryptic store for 2,000 Zen small icon.png, or as part of the Legacy Pack.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit is an upgraded version of the D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser. Vessels of this class were the foundation of the Romulan Star Empire's forces in the 24th Century. Drastically heavier than the T'liss-class and Dhelan-class models, the D'deridex-class is significantly more resilient and carries firepower comparable to a Federation Galaxy-class starship.

The D'Deridex-class Romulan Warbird is the same type as seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and in episodes of Star Trek: Voyager.

Performance[edit | edit source]

The D'deridex-class (commonly dubbed by players as the "Double-D") is similar to the cruisers of other factions, such as the Galaxy-class or the Bortas-class. Like them, the D'deridex is an extremely slow turner with a base turn rate of 5. Broadsiding with Beam Arrays is generally more effective than using Dual Cannons or Dual Beam Banks, as the wide firing arc of Beam Arrays works best with the ship's slow turn rate.

While the ship lacks in mobility compared to its predecessors, it more than makes up for it with its bridge officer setup. A Commander Engineering, Lt. Commander Tactical, and Lt. Commander Science make the D'deridex a remarkably versatile ship.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - ROM - D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser (T4).png
D'deridex-class
Measuring over 1300 meters in length, and easily dwarfing Starfleet's Galaxy-class starships, the D'deridex-class is one of the largest and most powerful vessels used by the Romulan Star Empire. The D'deridex-class has been at the forefront of Romulan contact with other species.

D'deridex skin is automatically available on any D'deridex-class variant.
Ship Variant - ROM - D'ridthau Warbird Battle Cruiser (T4).png
D'ridthau-class
The D'ridthau-class is a more compressed variant of the standard D'deridex-class Battle Cruiser, but still quite large. A distinctive wing pattern spans the hull and a much longer nose. The nacelles are twice as long and the ship sports two more nacelle-like devices at its rear base.

Players unlock the D'ridthau skin by acquiring the D'ridthau Warbird.
Ship Variant - ROM - D'khellra Warbird Battlecruiser (T6).png
D'khellra-class
An update of the feared D'deridex-class, the D’khellra-class incorporates technology first utilized on the Faeht-class and the Aelahl-class to give this ship improved capabilities for the difficult challenges the Republic will face in the Delta Quadrant.

Players unlock the D'khellra skin by acquiring the D'Khellra Warbird.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Projected Singularity].

This ability is part of the Enhanced Maneuvering Systems Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Molecular Phase Inversion Field] and [Console - Universal - Molecular Cohesion Nullifier] obtainable with D'ridthau Warbird Battle Cruiser (T4) and D'Khellra Warbird Battlecruiser (T6), but also equippable on the D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Battle Cloak

The D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Singularity[edit source]

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.

Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]

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.
