The Flambard Science Dreadnought Warbird is a Vice Admiral (Tier 6) level Dreadnought Warbird. This ship is available to Romulan Republic players from the Cryptic store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png, or as part of the 3-pack T6 Scimitar Bundle for 6,000 Zen small icon.png, or a 9-pack cross-faction bundle for 12,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

In the late 24th Century, the I.R.W. Scimitar was developed covertly by a group of Remans under the command of Praetor Shinzon, a clone of Jean-Luc Picard.

Battle in the Bassen Rift

Though equipped with numerous weapons and housing a contingent of Scorpion Fighters, the original Scimitar’s key feature was the ability to utilize thalaron radiation as a terrifying weapon. Shinzon first used a smaller thalaron radiation device to kill the entire Romulan Senate, and then relied on the Scimitar’s strength to back his overthrow of the Romulan government.

Praetor Shinzon attempted to deploy the Scimitar’s thalaron generator in the Battle in the Bassen Rift against the U.S.S. Enterprise-E and two Mogai-class Heavy Warbirds, but the Enterprise's crew prevented the weapon from being fired and destroyed the Scimitar – albeit at a heavy cost.

Flambard-class, a Romulan Dreadnought Warbird variant

The design of the Romulan Flagship Dreadnoughts was greatly inspired by the Reman Scimitar-class Dreadnought Warbird; however the ships have a Romulan Republic aesthetic. These massive and imposing starships are durable and bristling with weaponry, but they are very slow to maneuver.

The Flambard-class Science Dreadnought Warbird has a strong Science focus, and feactures more Science Bridge Officer seating and Science console slots than other Dreadnought Warbird variants.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - ROM - Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird (T5).png
Scimitar-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 Zen small icon.png
Designed by the Remans, Scimitar-class is more angular when compared to the curved shapes of Romulan warbirds. Warp nacelles are located on the main hull, where most warbirds carry the nacelles on the wings. The main hull is also more square and stubby than on traditional warbirds.
Ship Variant - ROM - Falchion Dreadnought Warbird (T5).png
Falchion-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Falchion Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 Zen small icon.png
At first glance, the Falchion-class appears very similar to Scimitar. There is a more distinctive deflector array on the top of the nose, and large green bussard collectors on the warp nacelles. Various slots on the ends of the wings also glow.
Ship Variant - ROM - Tulwar Dreadnought Warbird (T5).png
Tulwar-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Tulwar Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 Zen small icon.png
The most distinctive feature on the Tulwar-class of Dreadnought Warbirds is that the pylons, wing tips and warp nacelle covers all having open gaps within them, giving it a more lightweight appearance.
Ship Variant - ROM - Flambard Science Dreadnought Warbird (T6).png
Flambard-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Flambard-class adds the classic Romulan flair to Reman engineering with curved hull lines and more prominent nacelles. Compared to the other new variants, the Flambard has more exposed hull sections which offer a peak into its underlying working features.
Ship Variant - ROM - Khopesh Tactical Dreadnought Warbird (T6).png
Khopesh-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Khopesh Tactical Dreadnought Warbird, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
The Khopesh-class adds the classic Romulan flair to Reman engineering, but keeps some of the original Scimitar's ruggedness. Relatively thin wings and winglets and the backswept nacelles give the ship a more aggressive passive stance.
Ship Variant - ROM - Shamshir Operations Dreadnought Warbird (T6).png
Shamshir-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Shamshir Operations Dreadnought Warbird, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
Most similar to the classic Scimitar design, the Shamshir-class is bulkier when compared to the other new variants. Its most destinctive feature are large thalaron weapon emitters on the tips of its wings.
