Fleet D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit
Warbird Battle Cruiser
Players can obtain this vessel through the Shipyard for 20,000 and 4 , as long as the player's Fleet has a Tier IV shipyard. It can be purchased for only 20,000 and 1 if the D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit has already been purchased.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
|The D'Deridex-class Romulan Warbird is the same type as seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and in episodes of Star Trek: Voyager. Measuring over 1300 meters in length, and easily dwarfing Starfleet's Galaxy-class starships, the D'Deridex-class is one of the largest and most powerful vessels used by the Romulan Star Empire. The D'Deridex-class has been at the forefront of Romulan contact with other species, and acted as battleships during the Dominion War of 2373-2375.|
| The D'ridthau-class is a more compressed variant of the standard D'deridex-class Battle Cruiser, but is still quite large. There's a distinctive wing pattern that spans the hull and a much longer nose. The nacelles are twice as long and the ship sports two more nacelle-like devices at its rear base.|
Players unlock the D'ridthau skin by acquiring the D'ridthau Warbird Battle Cruiser.

Performance[edit | edit source]
The Fleet D'deridex takes the versatility of the D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit and enhances it with the addition of an extra Engineering console. Its Console and Bridge Officer setup makes it adept at Tactical, Science, or Engineering abilities in any build, meaning it is a ship that can do well with a Tactical, Science, or Engineering Captain. However, this versatility means that while it can be an "all-rounder" vessel, it will never excel in any one field the way that the Fleet Ha'apax Advanced Warbird focuses on Engineering or the Fleet Ha'feh Assault Warbird is Tactical orientated. Nevertheless, the ship is recommended for players that like a ship that can do a range of abilities, be it team healing, tanking, or general team support.
With an extra Engineering Console, a better Shield Modifier, and the extra Hull and Shield strength of a Fleet vessel, the Fleet D'deridex is especially well-suited to tanking. Its extremely low turn rate can be mitigated by turn rate consoles and high engine power. While it shares the same turn rate as its contemporary, the Fleet Exploration Cruiser Retrofit, the Fleet D'deridex has a higher inertia rating which allows it to turn without sliding unlike its Starfleet counterpart. The result is that the Fleet D'deridex is effectively more agile than the Galaxy class. Players may still prefer to equip Beam Arrays and Turrets to cover as wide a firing arc as possible, however the D'deridex's agility should not be underestimated, especially with the turn rate bonus from using the battle cloak. A Cannon/Turret/Torpedo build is a viable alternative to broadsiding for the experienced player who is able to properly position themselves to decloak and strike.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
The Fleet D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
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.
Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]
Romulan Warbirds 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.
