Science Command Warbird
Warbird Battle Cruiser/
The Science Command Warbird is a Vice Admiral (Tier 6) level Warbird. This ship is available to Romulan Republic players from the Cryptic store for 3,000 , or as part of the 3-pack Command Romulan Warbird bundle for 6,000 , or a 9-pack cross-faction bundle for 12,000 .
Overview[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.
The Deihu-class Command Warbird is a science centric variant and as such features more science console slots and science bridge officer seats than the other Command Warbird variants.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
|SKIN UNLOCK: Engineering Command Warbird, 3,000 |
Largest of the Command Warbirds, the Baratan-class is an impressive sight with its forward hull resembling a hooked beak and massive wings sweeping forward. Like the other Command Warbirds the Baratan has primary and secondary nacelles built into wing-tips, and tertiary nacelles extending from the main hull.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free |
With a bulky main hull, the Deihu-class's wings curve forwards smoothly with jagged rear edges, ending in the primary and secondary nacelles. As with the other Command Warbirds, the ship has tertiary nacelles attached to the rear of the main hull.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Tactical Command Warbird, 3,000 |
The Vastam-class has a sleeker design than the other Command Warbirds with a narrower hull and wings swept back. Its primary and secondary nacelles extend back from the tips of the wings, and the ship's tertiary nacelles fit between the wings and the main hull.

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.
