Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 37,500 . 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 Dhelan-class Warbird was designed in the 23rd century in response to the Romulan Star Empire's conflicts with the Federation. The ship was larger than the T'liss-class Warbird and carried a heavier payload of weapons to give it an edge in potential conflicts against the Federation's Constitution-class vessels.
As conflicts between the Federation and the Romulan Empire diminished, the Dhelan-class remained in the prototype stage, never seeing implementation in actual combat. Recently, unfinished models of the vessel have been modernized and put to use by the remnants of the Romulan people, who are utilizing any resources they can find to survive.
The newly-developed Dhael-class Refit offers the same high mobility and firepower as the original design, as well as a single universal Bridge Officer slot for added versatility.

Deployed by the Romulan Star Empire in the late 23rd century, the Dhelan-class design was imagined as a bridge between the T'liss Light Warbird of the 23rd century and the D'deridex Warbird Battlecruiser of the 24th century.
The Dhelan class takes visual cues from the Mogai Heavy Warbird. However, this vessel is much stockier, with the main body and wings being shorter and thicker, and comes with a secondary wing that arches over the primary wing.
The Dhelan class has more customization options than most of the other Romulan Warbirds, giving the player an option to choose between three different wing configurations:

When the Romulan Republic began working on expanding its fleet, the previously forgotten Dhelan class was brought back to life and refitted.
The new Dhael class offers a much sleeker look than the Dhelan class, but features the same dual-wing configuration as its predecessor. Large silver armor plates cover the main hull and wings, and the aft engine section has been separated into two large ridges.
Players can choose between two different wing configurations:
|SKIN UNLOCK: Hathos Warbird, 3,000 |
The Hathos class is based upon highly successful designs for the Dhelan class, but designed with a Reman aesthetic in mind, giving her a more aggressive look. Hathos class also comes with Tulwar, Scimitar and Falchion material types, unlocking them for all Dhelan variants.
The Dhael Warbird comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Singularity Inverter].
This ability is part of the Enhanced Defensive Systems Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Sabotage Probe Launcher] obtainable with Dhelan Warbird Retrofit (T5), but also equippable on the Dhael Warbird. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.
The Dhael-class Warbird 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 Dhael-class Warbird 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 Warbirds 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.
