The Taenen Strategic Explorer 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 3-pack Romulan Explorer Warbirds bundle for 6,000 Zen small icon.png, or a 9-pack cross-faction bundle for 12,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

With Alliance assistance from the Vulcans, the Romulan Republic engineered state-of-the-art science vessels. Like the Starfleet variants, Romulan Explorer Warbirds are very versatile, can load dual cannons and have a single hangar bay.

The Taenen-class Strategic Explorer Warbird was built from the ground up to incorporate shared technology from Starfleet's incredibly successful Multi-Mission Explorers as well as that found in modern Vulcan starships.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Informations
Ship Variant - ROM - Galas Explorer Warbird (T6).png
Galas-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Galas Surveillance Explorer Warbird, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
Vulcan influence is clearly visible in the design of all three Explorer Warbirds: aside from standard warp nacelles on the tips of ship's wings, all three ships feature an external singularity core, quite similar in design to the annular warp nacelle of the Vulcan D'Kyr-class Science Vessel.
Ship Variant - ROM - Surhuelh Explorer Warbird (T6).png
Surhuelh-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Surhuelh Reconnaissance Explorer Warbird, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
Minor changes to the hull, such as sharper lines on the aft of ship's wings and hull section and slightly shorter warp nacelles, differentiate the Surhuelh-class from the Galas-class Explorer. Its most distinctive feature, however, is that its singularity core "warp ring" is open.

Taenen-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Taenen-class has a slightly differently shaped head section when compared to the other two variants, and sports the shortest warp nacelles. A more prominent feather pattern is visible on the aft of the ship's wings.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The Taenen Strategic Explorer Warbird comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Omni-Directional Tachyon Wave Siphon].

This ability is part of the Alliance Multi-Mission Systems Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Protomatter Field Projector], [Console - Universal - Radiation Bombardment Matrix] and [Console - Universal - Isometric Dispersal Array] obtainable with Lukari Ho'kuun Science Vessel (T6), Reconnaissance Explorer Warbird (T6) and Surveillance Explorer Warbird (T6), but also equippable on the Taenen Strategic Explorer Warbird. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]

The Taenen Strategic Explorer Warbird features one specialist seat:

  • Lieutenant Commander Universal/Temporal Operative Lieutenant Commander Universal/Temporal Operative

Battle Cloak

The Taenen Strategic Explorer 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 Taenen Strategic Explorer 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]

Sensor Analysis[edit source]

Sensor Analysis is an active toggle ability. While maintaining a Sensor Lock on a target, the player gains a stacking effect that either improves the damage and power drain against an enemy, or improves any heal directed towards an ally. This effect stacks every 3 seconds, to a maximum of 6 stacks after 18 continuous seconds. To maintain the desired effect, the player must hold the sensor lock.

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.

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

The Taenen Strategic Explorer Warbird comes with built-in Subsystem Targeting abilities. These built-in abilities stay at Rank I and do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships. They are separate from Subsystem Targeting abilities gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.

Activating a subsystem targeting ability will upgrade all energy weapons to inflict a stacking power drain on the foe's targeted subsystem for the next 10 seconds. They will also have a small chance to knock the targeted subsystem offline for a short duration.

Special Features[edit | edit source]

The Taenen Strategic Explorer Warbird comes equipped with the unique [Aux Plasma Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XII]. The weapon's damage is calculated using the ship's Auxiliary Power level instead of Weapon Power, and they consume Auxiliary Power when fired. It can be claimed multiple times, but is limited to Explore Warbird variants.

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.
