The Dyson Joint Command’s engineering and scientific efforts within the Solanae Dyson Sphere have yielded incredible results. The Romulan Republic, Klingon Defense Force, and Federation have all been able to adapt the astonishing technologies found within this artificial celestial structure to their own ends.
After the success of the Aves-class prototype, Romulan engineers started working on improved variants. The Harpia-class Reconnaissance Warbird is one of these "Advanced Science Destroyer" variants. Dyson Science Destroyers have been inspired by designs found within the Solanae Dyson Sphere, but adapted to suit the needs of Romulan Republic without the required use of Omega Particles. These starships are first and foremost a Science Vessel, but are capable of entering Tactical Mode to significantly alter their performance.
The Dyson Science Destroyers manufactured by the Romulan Republic have lower shield modifiers than the Starfleet variants and less hull than the Klingon Defense Force’s variants, but they make up for this with a built-in Romulan Battle Cloaking Device.

With its prominent command "head" section and split hull design, the Aves class bears more than a passing resemblance to the Ar'kif class - only far more advanced looking. The ship has a comparatively much longer neck section and more prominent warp nacelles than the D'deridex.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Caprimul Surveillance Science Destroyer Warbird, 2,500 |
The first of the Advanced Dyson Science Destroyers, the Caprimul class is a science-oriented variant of the original Romulan Aves-class Destroyer. Its science focus is reflected in its pitch white hull plating.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship |
The Harpia class is a tactical-oriented variant. It is very similar to the original Romulan Aves-class Destroyer - the biggest differences are Harpia's command section and slightly larger warp nacelles.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Tyton Strategic Science Destroyer Warbird, 2,500 |
The Tyton class is an engineering-oriented variant. The Tyton bridges the design difference between the Caprimul and Harpia classes with its mostly white hull plating and only a few black accents on the ship's "tail" and underneath the "head" and "neck" section.

The Harpia Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Proton Destabilizer Module].
This ability is part of the Solanae Advanced Technologies Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Protonic Shield Matrix] and [Console - Universal - Shield Inversion Projector] obtainable with Dyson Strategic Science Destroyer Warbird (T5) and Dyson Surveillance Science Destroyer Warbird (T5), but also equippable on the Harpia Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.
The Harpia-class Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
Sensor Analysis is an active toggle ability. While maintaining a Sensor Lock on a target, the player gains a stacking effect that either improves the damage and power drain against an enemy, or improves any heal directed towards an ally. This effect stacks every 3 seconds, to a maximum of 6 stacks after 18 continuous seconds. To maintain the desired effect, the player must hold the sensor lock.
As a Romulan Warbird, the Harpia-class Reconnaissance Science Destroyer 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.
The Harpia-class Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird comes with built-in Subsystem Targeting abilities. These built-in abilities stay at Rank I and do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships. They are separate from Subsystem Targeting abilities gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.
- Target Auxiliary Subsystems I
- Target Weapons Subsystems I
- Target Engines Subsystems I
- Target Shields Subsystems I
Activating a subsystem targeting ability will upgrade all energy weapons to inflict a stacking power drain on the foe's targeted subsystem for the next 10 seconds. They will also have a small chance to knock the targeted subsystem offline for a short duration.
A built-in Tactical Mode ability allows the Harpia Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird to switch between a default Science Mode and Tactical Mode.
Activating the Tactical Mode transforms the starship from a typical Science Vessel into a combat-oriented Destroyer. This disables most of advanced science systems while activating additional tactical systems:
Tactical Mode may be deactivated at any time to return to the default Science Mode, but doing so incurs a 60 second cooldown on the transformation back to Tactical Mode.
The Harpia Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird comes equipped with the [Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons Mk XII [Acc] [CrtH]x2], a proton weapon similar to the Dyson Proton Weapon and only usable on a Dyson Science Destroyer when Tactical Mode is active.
Romulan Republic 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.
By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Harpia-class Reconnaissance Science Destroyer Warbird may be upgraded to T5-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
