Khopesh Tactical Dreadnought Warbird
The Khopesh Tactical 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 , or as part of the 3-pack T6 Scimitar Bundle for 6,000 , or a 9-pack cross-faction bundle for 12,000 .
Overview[edit | edit source]
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.
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 Khopesh-class Tactical Dreadnought Warbird has a focus on versatility, and features more Universal Bridge Officer seating and Tactical console slots than the other Dreadnought Warbird variants.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
|SKIN UNLOCK: Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 |
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.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Falchion Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 |
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.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Tulwar Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 |
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.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Flambard Science Dreadnought Warbird, 3,000 |
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.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free |
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.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Shamshir Operations Dreadnought Warbird, 3,000 |
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.

Purchasing the Khopesh Tactical Dreadnought Warbird also unlocks Romulan Drone Ship Frigates which can be equipped on any Romulan Dreadnought Warbird variant and Kelvin Timeline T'laru Intel Carrier Warbird. Romulan Drone ships utilize two unique pieces of technology. The first is Multi-Spectral Emitters, which allow them to take on the appearance of a limited variety of other types of ships. To support this technology, Romulan Drone ships are also equipped with Tri-Phasic Emitters. These change the frequency of the Drone Ship’s disruptors to emulate the weapon signatures of other weapon types, causing them to change both visually and functionally.
