    What's the ship being fired upon in this screenshot - http://images-cdn.perfectworld.com/www/94/f1/94f183782be5c38a5a15db755efacf251380048760.jpg ? Either I just can't recognize it or it's a Voth sneak peak.

    If it's a Voth sneak peak it's been around since before LoR went live. I recognize the picture (if not the ship) from Legacy of Romulus promotional images (mostly the ones for the T'Varo/Retrofit bundle).

    Edit:

    And I just got ninja'd by a box of cereal.

    Oh, now I kind of see it - http://sto.gamepedia.com/Sheshar_Dreadnought

    Still, missed opportunity - a sneak peak of the upcoming content in such news would be fun *hint hint wink wink nudge nudge*

    I am ridiculously fond of the T'Varo.

    I find most Romulan ships to be just too big.

    I know the d'diridex was big, but does everything else have to be the size of small country estates?

    Anyway, I'm not fond of the boff set ups either, but I love the T'Varo.

    My Romulan Tac flies one like an escort, all plasma cannons and torpedoes, the uber-romulan ship.

    My sci flies one like a drain boat. All plasmonic leech and drain power and beams.

    Both fly very differently, both feel different.

    The Lt Comdr universal station lets you customise to a very large degree.

    And the fleet version comes at tier one shipyard.

    I literally have nothing bad to say about this ship.



    Oh yes, enhanced Romulan battle cloak......just sayin'

    Great, romulans get more cool toys and consoles. What about tholians? My tetryon grid and web would like a set bonus too. (And a boost, tetryon grid is utterly terrible)

    I'm proudly boycotting the T'varo since May 21st.

    Why?

    CAUSE IT STOLE THE ENHANCED BATTLE CLOAK FROM MY B'REL, FOR ABSOLUTELY NO REASON, SINCE IT ALREADY CAME WITH A CONSOLE!!!!!

    I don't know if it's wise to showcase the t'varo when it's 2 piece is still bugged.

    You still get the enhanced torpedo potency (10% torpedo damage) boost, but the enhanced torpedo efficiency (reduction to all torp cds) is missing.

    Maybe it's getting fixed this oatch?
    Chive on and prosper, eh?

    Featuring ships like this should be an excellent opportunity to also introduce new skins/ship variants.

    Because while the T'varo by itself is indeed a fantastic ship, it really has only one model. Not even the fleet model introduced a new skin for it. There's no part swapping at all. And despite being a 'light warbird refit', it's the only republic ship that doesn't have access to a "2409 look".

    And I, for one, would like to state my interest for a 25th-century skin to be available for it. It doesn't have to be an entire ship, or a refit; just a skin variant. Adam Ihle himself had a pretty good idea for one, but you don't have to copy it - please just acknowledge that there's interest for this.

    I love my Fleet T'Varo, but I wish I could either get the T'liss skin or at least the Bird of Pray decal on my T'Varo.

    Art work is very good just not enough of it or better way might be its usually in a specific area of content for the game versus a balanced perspective of all the types of players of the game :)

    I do love the T'varo I just hope one day a certain ship that its very similar to gets the same justice :D

    find it odd there show casing this ship so long after its launch.

    are they not selling enough of these ships or something?

    I have the T'varo Tier 1 ship and once I hit Level 50 will get the T'varo Tier v for the set bonus and also because I prefer BOP over the Big D and mogai warbird.
    Only grumble I have about them is we cannot get a T'liss Skin or the warbird paint job on this ship as I absolutely love the ships look in the Balance of Terror

    They do it as a marketing ploy to advertise the ships they do it every so often. They have done it with a few ships including the vulcan D'kyr one

    One of the most "Romulan" ships ever made. It is a thing of beauty, both in look and feel. An aesthetic and operational triumph. It is allowed to use big words when your ship is smaller than most of the other green ones out there. ;)

    A T'liss skin would be the only thing making it even better, as stated above. Yes indeed. But we can't have perfection, for that is not for mortals to endure!
