Tal'aura Temporal Destroyer
The Tal'aura Temporal Destroyer is a Subadmiral (Tier 6) level Destroyer. This ship is available to Romulan Republic players from the Lobi Crystal Consortium for 900 . It can also be found on the exchange.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Tholian asteroid bases in the Azure Nebula still churn with activity, capturing numerous vessels from different timelines and salvaging their stolen technology. Fleets aligned with the Federation, the Klingon Defense Force, and the Romulan Republic have each been working against these Tholian captors, rescuing any vessels that they can from Tholian webs.
Recently, a new series of ships have been rescued from the clutches of the Tholians – Science Vessels and Destroyers that appear be Romulan ships from the 29th century. These ships have already been stripped of most of their advanced technology, but some remain functional. As more of these ships are reclaimed, the Ferengi Lobi Consortium has been repairing and refitting them for use in modern-day warfare – and then selling them for a modest fee.
One type of Romulan ship that has been discovered is the Tal'aura-class Temporal Destroyer, a successor to the previously recovered Talvath-class vessel. These Temporal Destroyers are not only from the future, but they also appear to be from the Mirror Universe. They are very similar to the Sui'Mor-class Temporal Science Vessels, however it is not surprising that these ships seem to be built more for combat than for temporal science experiments.
Like its Prime Universe counterpart, this type of vessel has caught the Romulan Republic’s interest. Unfortunately, these ships have shared a similar fate in that much of their 29th century technology is missing and likely in the hands of the Tholian Assembly. With its future origins, the Tal'aura-class bears a noticeably different appearance to other Romulan ships, but is still recognizable as being of Romulan heritage.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
||SKIN UNLOCK: Free |
The "head" of the Talvath-class bears a similarity to the curved command sections of the Ha'apax and the Ha'nom, angling downwards and giving the appearance of a Bird-of-Prey's beak. The wings are less broad, but feature the classic Warbird feather pattern on top.

An improved variant, the Tal'aura-class has sharper hull lines, giving it a more aggressive look. Additional windows have been added to the hull section and her warp nacelles are larger. The Tal'aura's hull plating is reminiscent of 25th century Mirror Universe warbirds.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Tal'aura Temporal Destroyer is named after Tal'aura, praetor of the Romulan Star Empire in the late 24th century.
- Unlike standard Romulan Republic Warbirds, Tal'aura-class has no cloak and uses a standard Warp Core instead of a Singularity Warp Core, and is thus lacking abilities common to other Romulan vessels.
- Acquiring the Tal'aura Temporal Destroyer unlocks the Tal'aura and Talvath Ship Material for all Romulan Temporal Ships.
- Aeon Timeship and Rozhenko Timeship ship materials cannot be used on Romulan Temporal Ships.
- This vessel comes with the unique 29th Century Romulan bridge.
- This vessel comes with an A.R.W. registry name prefix option.
