Overview[edit | edit source]
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.
In 2409, following the Khitomer Conference, the Republic chose one of the Tulwar-class warbirds as their flagship. The vessel, named the Lleiset, was given to Commander Tiaru Jarok, daughter of the famous defector from the Romulan Star Empire.
The Tulwar-class Dreadnought Warbird has a higher emphasis on Science, but retains much of its offensive potency.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
|SKIN UNLOCK: Scimitar Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 |
Designed by the Remans, Scimitar-class is more angular when compared to the curved shapes of Romulan warbirds. Warp nacelles are located on the main hull, where most warbirds carry the nacelles on the wings. The main hull is also more square and stubby than on traditional warbirds.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Falchion Dreadnought Warbird, 2,500 |
At first glance, the Falchion-class appears very similar to Scimitar. There is a more distinctive deflector array on the top of the nose, and large green bussard collectors on the warp nacelles. Various slots on the ends of the wings also glow.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free |
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 it a more lightweight appearance.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Flambard Science Dreadnought Warbird, 3,000 |
The Flambard-class adds the classic Romulan flair to Reman engineering with curved hull lines and more prominent nacelles. Compared to the other new variants, the Flambard has more exposed hull sections which offer a peak into its underlying working features.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Khopesh Tactical Dreadnought Warbird, 3,000 |
The Khopesh-class adds the classic Romulan flair to Reman engineering, but keeps some of the original Scimitar's ruggedness. Relatively thin wings and winglets and the backswept nacelles give the ship a more aggressive passive stance.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Shamshir Operations Dreadnought Warbird, 3,000 |
Most similar to the classic Scimitar design, the Shamshir-class is bulkier when compared to the other new variants. Its most destinctive feature are large thalaron weapon emitters on the tips of its wings.
