Daeinos Warbird Destroyer
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Romulan Republic has been working on a special new destroyer class Warbird, designed for high-level combat situations. Due to your loyalty as a 1000-day Veteran, the Republic has granted you command of this unique new Warbird — the prototype Deaeinos-class Warbird Destroyer. Ships of this class have some similarities to Escorts, but also have many qualities of Light Cruisers and Science Vessels.
The Daeinos' most striking trait is by far the change in appearance enabled its Dynamic Tactical System. The console effectively turns the Daeinos into a "transformer", with three different appearances based on its mode.
When engaging Tactical Mode, hidden panels in the Daeinos' head, neck, and center hull split and protrude, revealing the glowing green Plasma Lotus Array. The nacelles articulate downwards, locking to the underside of the wings instead of on the wingtips.
When preparing for warp or traveling in Sector Space, the Daeinos extends a small "tail" from the aft, and the rear ventral impulse engines flip outward to enhance warp travel.
Performance[edit | edit source]
Like most Warbirds, the Daeinos-class is a highly versatile and adaptable ship, with a balanced focus on firepower and survivability. It comes equipped with a prototype Dynamic Tactical System (or DTS).
The Daeinos-class, just like her Starfleet and Klingon counterparts, is one of several playable starships that can be upgraded to T5-U level without a Starship Upgrade Requisition. The ship gains an extra tactical console slot and a stronger hull, as well as access to four Starship Mastery levels which further enhance the ship's combat effectiveness.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
|| The Daeinos-class resembles the T'varo Light Warbird with a tapering aft, nacelles on the wingtips, and wings swept forward and up. The Daeinos differs in that it has a protruding forward "neck" and "head" section, not unlike that seen on the Mogai Heavy Warbird.|
Daeinos skin is automatically available on any Daeinos-class variant.
|| The Dinaes-class remains loyal to the original design with only slight changes to the shape of her wings and warp nacelles and shortened "head" and "tail" sections.|
Players unlock the Dinaes skin by acquiring the Dinaes Warbird Destroyer.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]
The Daeinos Warbird Destroyer comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Dynamic Tactical System], allowing the player to switch the Destroyer between Regenerative Mode and Tactical Mode.
While in the innate Regenerative Mode, excess power is transferred to the Auxiliary System, Starship Shield Systems skill is increased and Tachyon Inversion Beam is enabled.
Activating Tactical Mode transfers power to Weapon Systems, increases ship's Starship Targeting Systems skill granting an Accuracy bonus and enables a powerful multi-targeting Lotus capable of piercing multiple targets.
The Daeinos Warbird Destroyer has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
Experimental Weapon[edit source]
The Daeinos Warbird Destroyer comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.
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.
Special Features[edit | edit source]
The Daeinos Warbird Destroyer comes with a built-in Advanced Quantum Slipstream Drive which allows improved Sector Space travel speed of 107.8 (approx Warp 23) for 60 seconds instead of normal 30 seconds. Re-initializing it takes 60 seconds instead of normal 120 seconds.
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.
