The Dyson Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird is a Vice Admiral (Tier 5) level Science Vessel/Destroyer. This ship is available to Romulan Republic players from the Cryptic store for 2,500 Zen small icon.png, or as part of the 3-pack Romulan Republic Advanced Dyson Science Destroyer bundle for 5,000 Zen small icon.png, or a 9-pack cross-faction bundle for 10,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Dyson Joint Command’s engineering and scientific efforts within the Solanae Dyson Sphere have yielded incredible results. The Romulan Republic, Klingon Defense Force, and Federation have all been able to adapt the astonishing technologies found within this artificial celestial structure to their own ends.

The Harpia-class Advanced Dyson Science Destroyer

After the success of the Aves-class prototype, Romulan engineers started working on improved variants. The Harpia-class Reconnaissance Warbird is one of these "Advanced Science Destroyer" variants. Dyson Science Destroyers have been inspired by designs found within the Solanae Dyson Sphere, but adapted to suit the needs of Romulan Republic without the required use of Omega Particles. These starships are first and foremost a Science Vessel, but are capable of entering Tactical Mode to significantly alter their performance.

The Dyson Science Destroyers manufactured by the Romulan Republic have lower shield modifiers than the Starfleet variants and less hull than the Klingon Defense Force’s variants, but they make up for this with a built-in Romulan Battle Cloaking Device.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - ROM - Aves Dyson Science Destroyer (T5).png
Aves-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Aves Dyson Science Destroyer, 600 Lobi Crystal icon.png
With its prominent command "head" section and split hull design, the Aves-class bears more than a passing resemblance to the Ar'kif-class - only far more advanced looking. The ship has a comparatively much longer neck section and more prominent warp nacelles than the D'deridex.
Ship Variant - ROM - Caprimul Dyson Science Destroyer (T5).png
Caprimul-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Dyson Surveillance Science Destroyer Warbird, 2,500 Zen small icon.png
The Caprimul-class is a more science-oriented variant of the original Romulan Dyson Science Destroyer. Its science focus is reflected in its pitch white hull plating.
Ship Variant - ROM - Harpia Dyson Science Destroyer (T5).png
Harpia-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Harpia-class is a tactical-oriented variant of the original Romulan Dyson Science Destroyer. Most similar to the Aves-class, the biggest difference is Harpia's command section and sligthly larger nacelles.
Ship Variant - ROM - Tyton Dyson Science Destroyer (T5).png
Tyton-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Dyson Strategic Science Destroyer Warbird, 2,500 Zen small icon.png
The Tyton-class is an engineering-oriented variant of the original Romulan Dyson Science Destroyer. The Tyton bridges the design difference between the Caprimul and the Harpia-class with its mostly white hull plating and only a few black accents on the ship's "tail" and underneath the "head" and "neck" section.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The Dyson Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Proton Destabilizer Module].

This ability is part of the Solanae Advanced Technologies Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Protonic Shield Matrix] and [Console - Universal - Shield Inversion Projector] obtainable with Dyson Strategic Science Destroyer Warbird (T5) and Dyson Surveillance Science Destroyer Warbird (T5), but also equippable on the Dyson Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Battle Cloak

The Dyson Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Sensor Analysis[edit source]

Sensor Analysis is an active toggle ability. While maintaining a Sensor Lock on a target, the player gains a stacking effect that either improves the damage and power drain against an enemy, or improves any heal directed towards an ally. This effect stacks every 3 seconds, to a maximum of 6 stacks after 18 continuous seconds. To maintain the desired effect, the player must hold the sensor lock.

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.

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

The Dyson Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird comes with built-in Subsystem Targeting abilities. These built-in abilities stay at Rank I and do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships. They are separate from Subsystem Targeting abilities gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.

Activating a subsystem targeting ability will upgrade all energy weapons to inflict a stacking power drain on the foe's targeted subsystem for the next 10 seconds. They will also have a small chance to knock the targeted subsystem offline for a short duration.

Activating the Tactical Mode extends warbird's nacelles and reveals frontal heavy cannons
Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons are fused into a Fore weapon slot and can only be fired while in Tactical Mode

Tactical Mode[edit source]

A built-in Tactical Mode ability allows the Dyson Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird to switch between a default Science Mode and Tactical Mode.

Activating the Tactical Mode transforms the starship from a typical Science Vessel into a combat-oriented Destroyer. This disables most of advanced science systems while activating additional tactical systems:

  • Upgrades Lt. Commander Tactical Bridge Officer seat to Commander Tactical
  • Activates Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons
  • +15 Weapon Power
  • +2 Turn Rate; +10% Impulse Speed; +20 Inertia

Tactical Mode may be deactivated at any time to return to the default Science Mode, but doing so incurs a 60 second cooldown on the transformation back to Tactical Mode.

Dyson Science Destroyers can use standard Romulan and Reman ship materials

Special Features[edit | edit source]

The Dyson Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird comes equipped with the [Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons Mk XII [Acc] [CrtH]x2], a proton weapon similar to the Dyson Proton Weapon and only usable on a Dyson Science Destroyer when Tactical Mode is active.

[Solanae Secondary Deflector], part of the Solanae Advanced Technologies Set, can be equipped in starship's Secondary Deflector slot, thus completing the console set.

Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]

Romulan Republic 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.
