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 T'varo-class Retrofit is a further improved Light Warbird variant intended for Republic's Vice Admirals.

Class variants

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.
Ship Variant - ROM - Malem Light Warbird (T6).png
Malem class
SKIN UNLOCK: Malem Light Warbird, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
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]

Activating the Destabilized Plasma Torpedo launches a massive destructible torpedo

The T'varo Light Warbird Retrofit comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Plasma Destabilizer].

This ability is part of the Enhanced Projectile Efficiency Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Singularity Stabilizer] and [Console - Universal - Plasma Warhead Module] obtainable with T'varo-class Light Warbird (T1) and Malem-class Light Warbird (T6), but also equippable on the T'varo Light Warbird Retrofit. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Innate Enhanced Battle Cloak allows the T'varo class to fire projectiles while cloaked

Romulan Enhanced Battle Cloak

The T'varo Light Warbird Retrofit 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 T'varo Light Warbird Retrofit 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]

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. Upgrades of the standard equipment is recommended.
