Overview[edit | edit source]
The design of the Romulan Flagship Dreadnoughts was greatly inspired by the Reman Scimitar 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 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]
||The Flambard-class has a strong Science focus, and feactures more Science Bridge Officer seating and Science console slots than other Dreadnought Warbird variants. The Flambard class skin is unlocked with the purchase of the Flambard Science Dreadnought Warbird (T6) for 3,000 .|
||The Shamshir-class has a strong Engineering focus, and features more Engineering Bridge Officer seating and Engineering console slots than other Dreadnought Warbird variants. The Shamshir class skin is unlocked with the purchase of the Shamshir Operations Dreadnought Warbird (T6) for 3,000 .|
|| The Falchion-class has a more steadfast focus, making them ideal for Engineering captains.
At first glance, the Falchion class appears very similar to the Scimitar class. 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.
|| The Scimitar-class most closely resembles the original model, designed for raw firepower.
As the ship was of Reman design, Dreadnought Warbirds are more angular when compares to the curved shapes of Romulan warbirds. One other distinctive feature is that the warp nacelles are located on the main hull, where most Romulan vessels carry the nacelles on the wings, usually near the tips. The main hull is also more square and stubby than traditional Romulan vessels.
|| The Tulwar-class has a higher emphasis on Science, but retains much of its offensive potency.
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 a more lightweight appearance.

Notes[edit | edit source]
