Overview[edit | edit source]

In the late 24th Century, the I.R.W. Scimitar was developed covertly by a group of Remans under the command of Praetor Shinzon, a clone of Jean-Luc Picard.

Though equipped with numerous weapons and housing a contingent of Scorpion Fighters, the original Scimitar’s key feature was the ability to utilize thalaron radiation as a terrifying weapon. Shinzon first used a smaller thalaron radiation device to kill the entire Romulan Senate, and then relied on the Scimitar’s strength to back his overthrow of the Romulan government.

Praetor Shinzon attempted to deploy the Scimitar’s thalaron generator in the Battle in the Bassen Rift against the U.S.S. Enterprise-E and two Mogai-class Heavy Warbirds, but the Enterprise's crew prevented the weapon from being fired and destroyed the Scimitar – albeit at a heavy cost.

Since the Battle of the Bassen Rift, both the Tal Shiar and the Romulan Republic have developed new variants based on the original ship design. The Scimitar-class, Falchion-class, and Tulwar-class of Romulan Dreadnought Warbirds represent the Romulan Republic’s latest iterations on this technology.


The Tulwar Dreadnought Warbird comes with a [Console - Universal - Singularity Distributor Unit], which allows shields to remain up even while cloaked, based on Singularity Charge. This console also helps to mask your ship's Singularity Power signature, diminishing the Singularity's impact on your ship's Cloaking Device.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Tulwar class[edit | edit source]

Tulwar class

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 appearances

Scimitar class[edit | edit source]

Scimitar class
Main Article: Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird

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.

Falchion class[edit | edit source]

Falchion class
Main Article: Falchion Dreadnought Warbird

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.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Tulwar Dreadnought Warbird can utilize [Console - Universal - Secondary Shields] from the Falchion Dreadnought Warbird (Tier 5, C-Store, 2500 Zen small icon.png), as well as the [Console - Universal - Cloaked Barrage] from the Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird (Tier 5, C-Store, 2500 Zen small icon.png). Equipping two or all three consoles will grant the 2-piece or 3-piece item set bonus from the Advanced Scimitar Systems Set.

If all three consoles are equipped, player gains access to:

Battle Cloak

The Tulwar Dreadnought Warbird has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

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.

Hangar Bay[edit | edit source]

This ship includes a single hanger bay equipped with [Hangar - Scorpion Fighters] which can be launched in waves, gaining strength the longer they stay in battle. Scorpion Fighters are armed with Plasma Pulse Cannons and Plasma Torpedo Launchers.

Dreadnought Warbirds are also the only ships that can equip [Hangar - Romulan Drone Ship]. Romulan Drone ships utilize two unique pieces of technology. The first is Multi-Spectral Emitters, which allow them to take on the appearance of a limited variety of other types of ships. To support this technology, Romulan Drone ships are also equipped with Tri-Phasic Emitters. These change the frequency of the Drone Ship’s disruptors to emulate the weapon signatures of other weapon types, causing them to change both visually and functionally.

Carrier Commands[edit source]

Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]

All 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.
