Description[edit | edit source]
Engineers from the Romulan Republic have looked at new command ship designs from their allies in both Starfleet and Klingon Defense Force. Rather than contract with those groups to build ships for their fleet, the Republic has instead chosen to design and commission a new series of Command Warbirds to be constructed at the New Romulus Shipyards. These ships are designed to act as mobile command centers that will inspire allies with instantaneous informational updates throughout a battle. They are also built to please the Romulan desire for grand scale, creating large, tough Warbirds that can lead a fleet into combat.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- In the Rihannsu series of Star Trek novels by Diane Duane, "deihu" is a Romulan word referring to members of the lower house of the Romulan legislature. The word is normally translated into Federation Standard as "senator", but "elder" is more accurate.
