The Fleet D'Khellra-class Warbird Battlecruiser is a Tier 6 Warbird Battlecruiser which may be flown by Romulan Republic characters, as well as characters of any other faction. The faction restrictions of this starship can be removed by having a level 65 KDF character or by purchasing the Cross Faction Flying unlock from the Zen Store. This starship can be used from any level upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.
Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 20,000 and 5 , so long as the player's Fleet has a Tier IV Shipyard and one Starbase Military Fleet Ship Provision. If the player already owns the D'Khellra Warbird Battlecruiser from the Zen Store, the Fleet Ship Module cost is reduced to 1.

The D'deridex-class Warbird Battle Cruiser was the foundation of the Romulan Star Empire's forces in the 24th Century. Drastically heavier than the T'liss Light Warbird and Dhelan Warbird, the D'deridex class is significantly more resilient and carries firepower comparable to a Starfleet's Galaxy-class starship.
Following the success of new ships developed for Operation: Delta Rising, engineering teams at Mol'Rihan began work on updating core ship designs in the Republic's fleet that would combine the best of Romulan construction with new ideas from Republic engineers and technical improvements suggested by the Republic's allies.
The D'Khellra-class Warbird Battlecruiser is the first ship from this effort to be released to Republic captains. An update of the feared D'deridex-class Retrofit that was the mainstay of the Romulan Star Empire's fleets in the late-24th century, the D’Khellra class incorporates updated technology developed to give this ship improved capabilities for the difficult challenges the Republic faces in the months ahead.
Federation and Klingon Empire Fleets, which Republic officers are part of, have made further upgrades to the D'Khellra-class Warbird Battlecruisers. These Fleet Starships are built to the highest standard and have increased Hull Hit Points, Shield Strength and an additional Engineering Console slot. Tier 6 Fleet ships do not have a 5th Starship Mastery level and thus do not unlock a Starship Trait.
Purchasing the Legendary D'deridex Miracle Worker Warbird Battlecruiser for 12,000 unlocks all existing ship variants.

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 Fleet D'Khellra Warbird Battlecruiser doesn't come equipped with any universal consoles.
However, it can equip [Console - Universal - Molecular Phase Inversion Field], [Console - Universal - Projected Singularity] and [Console - Universal - Molecular Cohesion Nullifier] which form the Enhanced Maneuvering Systems Set. These consoles are obtainable with D'ridthau Warbird Battle Cruiser (T4), D'deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser Retrofit (T5) and D'Khellra Warbird Battlecruiser (T6). For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.
The Fleet D'Khellra-class Warbird Battlecruiser features the following specialist seats:
- Lieutenant Commander Tactical/Command
The Fleet D'Khellra-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 Fleet D'Khellra-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.
This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.
Equipment slots and seating
As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:
This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.485 for the Fleet D'Khellra-class Warbird Battlecruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Fleet D'Khellra-class Warbird Battlecruiser may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
Note that upgrading the D'Khellra Warbird Battlecruiser, the standard non-fleet version of the Fleet D'Khellra Warbird Battlecruiser, will not apply the upgrade to this starship.
