The UnOfficial Romulan Republic Uniform Color Codes

edited October 2014 in Romulan Discussion
This post is intended to be a guide for official Romulan Republic's uniform colors. The selected colors are carefully referenced from NPCs, ship's internal crews, or Cryptic's photos. To use this guide, simply replace the default uniform color code with class appropriate color. For example, science player can replace their default yellow (D7) to light blue (F16). The result is consistent with the story's setting. This thread might expend and update in the future when more information become available.

HQ Command (Green) - E4
This color can be seen on Admiral Kererek on New Romulus

Tactical (Red) - B5
The direct translated color from purchased tactical bridge officer is B8. Strangely, it does not match the ship interior crew's color (not to mention B8 is very pinkish), therefore it's been replaced to B5 after color matching.

Science (Blue) - F16
This is a direct translation from purchased science bridge officer. The color also matches the internal crew's color.

Engineering / Security (Yellow) - D7
Default color

Logistic (Army Green) - D24
This color can be seen on logistic personnel on the flotilla, and their uniforms are more of a mixed bag in style. Generally, they use less peripheral equipments, wear loose pants and short boots.

Admiral's Uniform (Veteran's award)
V. 1 (Brown-trimmed) - Yellow (D7)
V. 2 (Grey-trimmed) - Light grey (I20)
V. 3 (Gold-trimmed) - Dark grey (I22)
* All may use the same green, red, blue, yellow theme
* Suggestion: White gloves. They are worn by real life admirals

Republic Dress Uniform (Veteran's award)
Primary color - Dark green (D24)
Secondary color - Dark green (D24)
Trim - Beige (A6)
Glove - Black (I24)
Boots - Black (B18), trim (A6)

All Departments:
Undershirt - I23, trim I21
Glove - I23, trim I21

Suggestions:
Drape - Purple (H3, to match "warm" colors), Indigo (G21, to match "cool" colors), or just same as uniform color. Purple suggests royalty and it's a traditional color from Imperial Romulan Navy
Republic Uniform 1 - For Officers
Republic Uniform 2 - For Enlisted

Comments and suggestions are welcomed, have fun! :D

    24th Century uniforms all the way, or for my Reman and her crew all black mostly the veteran items. Nice code list though.

    Agreed; All green-and-black should be standard/engineering/science, blue accents medical (Shared with Feds, sure, but it just looks right), and purple accents command, tactical, and operations. The ridiculous Color Trinity was silly enough painted all over the Federation...

    Given what we saw in "Balance of Terror" with the Romulan Decius

    who kept pestering the commander for an increasingly aggressive approach it might actually be that blue is the colour of tactical.;)

    well, blue/purple anyways. :P My Romulan tac actually does wear purple. Her skin(Alien) is purple too for some reason I can't remember. Maybe it was the randomize button? Dunno.

    My eng actually does wear a yellow/green color.

    I am using this guide for my Romulans for now while I am just starting out, it makes sense and it appeals to my "must have everyone matching" ocd-ishness about my ship's crew.

    I am using RR Uniform 1 for all my Bridge Officers, and my Captain wears RR Uniform 2 (cause of teh fancy shoulders). that is, until I unlock more Uniforms. my plan is for my Captain to distinguish himself by wearing a separate Uniform that no one else on my ship gets to wear. also, Rank shoulderpads when I unlock em.

    looking for a good way to incorporate Tactical Red into my Captain's outfit(just to denote which branch my Captain came from), without overshadowing the Command Green. Perhaps I'll make my Shoulderpads Red. *shrug*

    just want to note, that the Yellow for Engineering is *C7*, not D7.

    also, do Medical Personnel wear Science Blue, or do they have their own color?

    and where are these Logistics people on my ship and when/where do I have any control over what colors they wear?

    Thanks for input and sorry for the late response ;)

    The RR medical personnel seem to wear a while/grey uniform, which is unfortunately not available at this moment. The medical people can be seen on the flotilla's infirmary.

    Logistic crews are on the flotilla's capital ship only, which makes sense because it's probably also a supply ship.

    I double checked the engineering color code and it was D7. What I did was I applied the RR uniform 01 to the character, and then checked the palette for the code.

    It's very kind and generous of the OP to figure this out and share it with everyone. I don't mean to dismiss their efforts. But personally I don't care for the general Romulan colour scheme. It's 50 Shades of Brown and Grey. Tres drab. I tszujed mine up a bit.

    Eg. for science with Romulan Republic 2 upper I opted for:

    E3 (green)
    E21 (blue)
    E21 (blue)
    D8 (gold'ish)

    with those colours repeated for other parts. A21 (red) replacing blue for tactical and D21 (yellow) for engineering.

    Looks much nicer IMO.

    Actually, only two colors for Romulan departments were ever presented in canon. Both in TOS (not counting cartoon). Purple for command and blue for tactical. Then came TNG and all Romulans started dress in various shades of blue-ish gray.

    For my romulan engineer, I looked around new romulus command and think I've managed to match up the outfit almost perfectly.

    All outfit pieces are Romulan Republic 1

    Upper = D7, I18, I21, I23

    Hands = I23, I21

    Chest Gear (optional) = B17, A6, A19 (alternative to brown pouches is B17, B17, A17)

    Wrists = B17, B14

    Undershirt = I23, I21

    Belt = B17, A6, A19, A3 (alternative to brown pouches is B17, B17, A17, A3)

    Lower = I21, I23, I23

    Boots = B17, B15, B15, B17

    Here is a side-by-side comparison (my character is on the left)

    This color can be seen on logistic personnel on the flotilla. Their uniforms are more of a mixed bag in style because the nature of their works. Generally speaking, they use less peripheral equipments, wear loose pants and short boots. The following is recommended if you wish to recreate their dress.
    Upper Body
    Hands: Bare
    Chest Gear: None
    Wrists: None
    Lower Body
    Category: Loose Mild Ankle
    Belt: Romulan Republic 2 or 3 (Grey B15)
    Lower: The Wrath of Kahn, or Romulan 24th Century (Grey I23)
    Feet: Romulan 24th Century (Grey I23)

    All Departments:
    Undershirt - I23, I21
    Glove - I23, I21

    Suggestions:
    Cape - Purple (H3). Purple suggests royalty and it's a traditional color carried over from Imperial Romulan Navy
    Republic Uniform 1 - For Officers
    Republic Uniform 2 - For Enlisted

    Thanks for the work!

    Althrough i don't do RP with other ppl, i like my crew/ship/uniform be as harmonious and fitting as possible.

    This is very close to what I use for my Romulan crews. One thing I do differently is I use the division color on the drapes, since the green "command" jacket doesn't reflect the captain's division. My Starfleet captains also wear appropriate division colors.

    Nice work, I'll have to try it out on one of my crew some time. For now though I'll just stick with what I've got: Grey with green shoulders and lapels and a division-colored (red/blue/yellow) undershirt. I definitely agree on the purple drapery though, already use that on my admirals.

    I've noticed that some of the NPCs at the Romulan Flotilla are wearing shoulder pads with bright green drapes. (I'm not sure if that's a color we can accurately reproduce.) The NPC at New Romulus Command that gives out the Veteran Dilithium assignment has the same.

    Is anyone going to update this on STOwiki?

    I would really like to see that updated with the Romulan uniforms.

    Also, what are the color codes for the Reman outfits from Star Trek: Nemesis?

    Basically, the FedRom uniforms all suck, trying too hard to be Firefly. But the KDFRom uniforms are masterpieces once you add some colour to them. I use Red-Purple and Blue-purple for tac and sci respectively (maintaining the established colour code, but making them interesting - and dark). For engis I use a dark green.

    I use the metallic colours, gold and silver to designate rank groupings. Gold for command, silver for non-command boffs.

    However, the KDFRom boots for the women are injuries waiting to happen, so I use miners' boots for everyone.

    Unfortunately, the devs haven't gotten around to giving us security escorts and ship crew with uniforms other than the butt-fugly FedRom ones.

    If we had a Romulan nemesis uniform option in the C store. I'd spend zen for it no question. However I fear that cryptic has released all the costumes that Romulans' are going to have access too. Heck I'd even enjoy seeing a C store option for the Romulan TAS uniforms shown in the old cartoon.

    I'd rather let my Romulan teal/green or purple , which I can not use on my RR/KDF (damn , why?)

    And that Nemesis/ENT uniforms i want since LoR was released. http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20070107085008/memoryalpha/en/images/b/b8/Romulan_uniform_2154.jpg

    Not a fan of the Federation colour set either... but another big thanks to the OP for the work and updates! :D

    I figure a good workaround for not using the Fed colours is:
    - yellow for standard officer BOFFs (most Republic NPCs are in that colour, so it must be officer's standard colour)
    - dark green / logistics for department head BOFFs
    - admiral's green for my character

    Yeah, I hope when Thomas the Cat gets around to doing Republic uniform guides (I hope he's still planning on doing this), the divisional colors will go away. That said, I do like the blue variant of the uniform, but I'd rather see the yellow/brown be standard for all divisions.

    The game sort of agrees on your coloration by rank. Commander Jarok wears a greener jacket than the standard Republic NPCs, and Keretek wears vivid green:

    http://sto.gamepedia.com/Guide:_Uniform_colors/Romulan_uniforms#Romulan_Republic_Uniforms

    But part of Jarok's crew wears gray, a color not seen on anyone else, so who knows.
