The Vastam Command Battlecruiser is a Vice Admiral (Tier 6) level Romulan Warbird. It is the tactical variant of the three Command Warbirds. It features more tactical console slots and tactical bridge officer seats than the other Command Warbird variants. Players can obtain the vessel from the C-Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png individually, 6,000 Zen small icon.png for a Romulan Only Bundle, or 12,000 Zen small icon.png for a cross-faction Mega-Bundle.

The Vastam Command Battlecruiser comes equipped with a [Console - Universal - Defense Platform] capable of deploying a phaser defense platform that will attack enemy ships and deploy mines.

Description[edit | edit source]

Engineers from the Romulan Republic have looked at new command ship designs from their allies in both Starfleet and Klingon Defense Force. Rather than contract with those groups to build ships for their fleet, the Republic has instead chosen to design and commission a new series of Command Warbirds to be constructed at the New Romulus Shipyards. These ships are designed to act as mobile command centers that will inspire allies with instantaneous informational updates throughout a battle. They are also built to please the Romulan desire for grand scale, creating large, tough Warbirds that can lead a fleet into combat.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Vastam Class[edit | edit source]

Vastam class
The Command Warbirds share a similar design to other Republic ships, with a large primary hull and wings unfurling from either side. The Vastam class has a sleeker design than the other Command Warbirds with a narrower hull and its wings swept back. Its primary and secondary nacelles extend back from the tips of the wings, and the ship's tertiary nacelles fit between the wings and the main hull.


Baratan Class[edit | edit source]

Bataran class
The Baratan class is the largest of the Command Warbirds. With its forward hull resembling a hooked beak and its massive wings sweeping forwards, the ship is an impressive sight. Like the other Command Warbirds it has primary and secondary nacelles built into its wing-tips, and tertiary nacelles extending up from the main hull.

This class is available after purchasing the Baratan Command Battlecruiser from the C-Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png.

Deihu Class[edit | edit source]

Deihu class
With a bulky main hull the Deihu class's wings curve forwards smoothly with jagged rear edges, ending in the primary and secondary nacelles. As with the other Command Warbirds, the ship has tertiary nacelles attached to the rear of the main hull.

This class is available after purchasing the Deihu Command Battlecruiser from the C-Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Console[edit | edit source]

The Vastam Command Battlecruiser includes a [Console - Universal - Defense Platform]. While the Defense Platform console is equipped, your starship can launch a formidable weapons platform. This platform will be deployed at your current position and will fire beam arrays at nearby enemies. Additionally, it will deploy a large number of mines in the vicinity. Once these mines are detonated, they will be replaced after a short time. Equipping this console also provides a moderate boost to projectile damage.

This console is part of the Command Platforms set. Equip multiple consoles from this set to earn bonuses.

Battle Cloak

The Vastam Command Battlecruiser 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]

This ship includes a single hanger bay equipped with [Hangar - Scorpion Fighters].

Scorpion Fighters are armed with Plasma Pulse Cannons and Plasma Torpedo Launchers.

Carrier Commands[edit source]

  • Commander Engineering-Command Commander Engineering-Command
