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.
The Vastam-class Command Warbird is a tactical centric variant and features more tactical console slots and tactical bridge officer seats than the other Command Warbird variants. The Vastam class is named after Vastam Peaks, region on the surface of the newly-settled Mol'Rihan.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Baratan Operations Command Warbird, 3,000 |
Largest of the Command Warbirds, the Baratan class is a sight to behold with its forward hull resembling a hooked beak and massive wings sweeping forward. Like the other Command Warbirds the Baratan has primary and secondary nacelles built into wing-tips, and tertiary nacelles extending from the main hull.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Deihu Science Command Warbird, 3,000 |
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.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship |
The Vastam class has a sleeker design than the other Command Warbirds with a narrower hull and 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.
