Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 150,000 under the name D'ridthau Warbird Battle Cruiser. This ship can be purchased individually, or as part of the PC-only Legacy of Romulus Legacy Pack for 16,000 . It is also available as part of the following: Console-only Romulan Legacy Pack for 4,000 , All Faction Mega Bundle for 8,000 . This ship was previously available on its own from the Zen Store; players that purchased it from there can still reclaim it from there on all their characters.
The D'deridex-class Warbird Battlecruiser was the foundation of the Romulan Star Empire's forces in the 24th Century. Drastically heavier than the T'liss-class Light Warbird and Dhelan-class Warbird, the D'deridex class is significantly more resilient and carries firepower comparable to a Starfleet's Galaxy-class starship.
Purchasing the Legendary D'deridex Miracle Worker Warbird Battlecruiser for 12,000 unlocks all existing ship variants.

The D'ridthau class is a more compressed variant of the standard D'deridex-class Battlecruiser, but still quite large. A distinctive wing pattern spans the hull and a much longer nose. The nacelles are twice as long and the ship sports two more nacelle-like devices at its rear base.

An update of the feared D'deridex class, the D'Khellra-class incorporates technology first utilized on the Faeht class and Aelahl classes to give this ship improved capabilities for the difficult challenges the Republic will face in the Delta Quadrant.
Despite having "D'Khellra" in its name, the Fleet D'Khellra Warbird Battlecruiser does not unlock the D'Khellra-class customization parts.

The I.R.W. Unity was a specially constructed D’Deridex-class Warbird commissioned by Romulan Proconsul Neral in 2367. The Unity was built with lavish recreational and diplomatic facilities and was tasked with hosting delegations of colonies important to the Empire’s stagnating economy to establish influence with a softer touch. Her defensive capabilities were augmented as well to engage in “gunboat diplomacy” if the Empire’s new subjects decided not to roll out the red carpet.
The Unity made several successful tours showing the flag throughout the Empire until it was attacked and captured by a cadre of Garidian rebels in 2379. The rebels took advantage of the confusion surrounding Shinzon’s coup to seize the Unity while it was visiting their homeworld. Once under their control, the Garidians re-painted the hull in stark gray and red; it was now a symbol of defiance against Imperial authority. The Unity stayed in service through the end of the 24th century and eventually joined the Romulan Republic fleet, where it serves today, proudly retaining its distinctive paint scheme.
The D'ridthau Warbird Battlecruiser comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Molecular Phase Inversion Field].
This ability is part of the Enhanced Maneuvering Systems Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Projected Singularity] obtainable with D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit (T5), but also equippable on the D'ridthau Warbird Battlecruiser. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.
Despite being a D'deridex variant, D'Khellra Warbird Battlecruiser (T6)'s [Console - Universal - Molecular Cohesion Nullifier] cannot be equipped on this vessel.
The D'ridthau-class Warbird Battlecruiser has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
As a Romulan Warbird, the D'ridthau-class Warbird Battlecruiser comes 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.
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.
