Players can obtain this starship from the Zen Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png. This ship can be purchased individually, or as part of the Cross Faction Dreadnought Bundle [T6] for 6,000 Zen small icon.png.

Purchasing this starship will unlock a Fleet Ship Module discount when purchasing the Fleet Ha'apax-class Advanced Warbird (T6).

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Kara-class Advanced Warbird represents the latest developments in Romulan technology. Larger than even the mighty D'deridex class, the Kara class has superior firepower and even greater hull strength. While slow to maneuver, it is a juggernaut on the battlefield, capable of withstanding tremendous damage while unleashing weapons on her foes. With a devastating built-in Plasma Spinal Lance, the Kara class is a very formidable opponent.

Class variants

Class Information
Ship Variant - ROM - Ha'apax Advanced Warbird Type 1 (T5).png
Ha'apax class Type 1
When compared to the older Romulan warbirds, the Ha'apax class has a much bulkier main hull with no internal space like the D'deridex class. The enormous wings arch downwards (reminiscent of the Dhelan class) to meet with the secondary wings, and the "head" looks to be patterned somewhat after a Bird-of-Prey such as an eagle. Indeed, when viewed from directly above or below, it becomes obvious that the ship's shape and design are strongly reminiscent of a Bird-of-Prey in flight.

Players can choose between two different types (Type 1 and Type 2) of Ha'apax class "hull" and "nacelle" designs.

Ha'apax class Type 2
Ship Variant - ROM - Ha'apax Advanced Warbird (T5) (Ha'nom-Ha'feh-subclass).png
Ha'nom-Ha'feh subclass
The Ha'apax class parts are interchangeable with parts from the Ha'feh and the Ha'nom. Selecting these parts will turn the ship's Assault command section into a Ha'feh-class vessel and Guardian command section into a Ha'nom.
Ship Variant - ROM - Haakona Advanced Warbird (T5).png
Haakona class
SKIN UNLOCK: Haakona Advanced Warbird, 2,500 Zen small icon.png
When compared to the Ha'apax, the Haakona class has a more ridged and segmented overall design. The ship's primary wings sweep upwards, while the wings of the Assault Warbird component sweep downwards, giving it a look of an eagle with its talons outstretched.

Kara class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship
Based on previous Advanced Warbird designs, the Kara class shares a lot of similarities with Haakona-class Warbird. The most notable difference is the lance emitter on the front section of the ship. Unlike its predecessor, it also features a hangar bay.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

The Kara Advanced Warbird comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Supplemental Subsystems].

This ability is part of the Romulan Maneuvering Protocol Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Dual Vector Separation] obtainable with Haakona Advanced Warbird (T5), but also equippable on the Kara Advanced Warbird. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Specialization seating[edit source]

The Kara-class Advanced Warbird features the following specialist seats:

  • Lieutenant Commander Universal-Command Lieutenant Commander Universal/Command

Battle Cloak

The Kara Advanced Warbird has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Hangar bay[edit | edit source]

The Kara Advanced Warbird comes equipped with a single wing of Scorpion Fighters.

These light craft are equipped with fore Plasma Pulse Cannons and Plasma Torpedo Launcher.

The Elite variant of the Scorpion Fighter is obtainable from the New Romulus reputation system.

Carrier commands[edit source]

Singularity[edit source]

Romulan Warbirds 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.

Special features[edit | edit source]

The Kara Advanced Warbird comes with a built-in Spinal Lance

The Kara Advanced Warbird comes with a built-in Plasma Spinal Lance.

This devastating weapon fires a single, powerful plasma beam at a target. It has a narrow firing arc, but when applied properly, it can deal large amount of damage. When the ship separates using the Dual Vector Separation from the Haakona Advanced Warbird, the lance switches into wide beam mode, damaging multiple targets in a cone area, albeit dealing them less damage.

Standard configuration[edit | edit source]

Romulan 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.

Scaling starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment slots[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons
0-9 2 2 0 2 2
10-19 2 2 1 3 2
20-29 3 3 1 3 3
30-39 3 3 2 4 4
40+ 4 4 2

Hull strength[edit source]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.333333 for the Kara Advanced Warbird), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

Hull scaling table
