The Malem Light Warbird is a Vice Admiral (Tier 6) level 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 the cross-faction 3-pack Defiant bundle for 6,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The T'varo-class Light Warbirds have been in service of the Romulan Star Empire since at least mid-22nd century when two vessels of this class were encountered by the NX-01 Enterprise.

Fast, light, and maneuverable, the T'varo-class has been upgraded over time and remains in use by both the Romulan Star Empire and the newly-formed Romulan Republic.

The new Malem-class Light Warbird is heavily based on the T'varo-class Retrofit's original designs, but has been greatly improved upon to better combat the Republic's current enemies.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - ROM - T'varo Light Warbird (T1).png
T'varo-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The T'varo-class is based on a design used during the 22nd century. They are similar in design to the T'liss, but with sharper edges and a more dagger-like appearance. T'varo follows standard avian-like design lineage of other Romulan vessels.
Ship Variant - ROM - T'Liss Temporal Warbird (T6).png
T'liss-class
SKIN UNLOCK: T'liss Temporal Warbird, 1 Special Requisition Choice Pack - Tier 6 Promotional Ship Choice Pack icon.png
The T'liss-class dates back to the 23rd century, where one served as the flagship of the Romulan Star Empire. They are relatively simplistic in design, and feature a unique paint scheme depicting a bird-of-prey on the underside.

Malem-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Malem-class is a new Light Warbird variant built by the Romulan Republic in 2410. The Malem follows the standard avian-like design of the original Romulan warbird, but also keeps up with modern design trends, featuring smoother and more organic lines and edges.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The Malem Light Warbird comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Plasma Warhead Module].

This ability is part of the Enhanced Projectile Efficiency Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Singularity Stabilizer] and [Console - Universal - Plasma Destabilizer] obtainable with T'varo Light Warbird (T1) and T'varo Light Warbird Retrofit (T5), but also equippable on the Malem Light Warbird. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]

The Malem Light Warbird features one specialist seat:

  • Lieutenant Commander Universal-Pilot Lieutenant Commander Universal-Pilot
A cloaked Light Warbird launches a Plasma Torpedo

Romulan Enhanced Battle Cloak

The Malem Light Warbird has an enhanced battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking. The enhanced cloak also allows the use of mines, torpedoes, and most Bridge Officer and Captain abilities while remaining cloaked.

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The Malem Light Warbird comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.

Singularity[edit source]

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]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Malem Light Warbird was likely named in honor of Malem, the Maiori of the Virinat colony.
