Pepperman sent me this reference a while back just got time to start working on it. I don't know who did the origanal concept so if any one knows let me know. Still have alot of work to do but I thought I just get some opinions on this early stage.

Very cool ship indeed I love new Rommies. It has a TNG 'ish flare to it.

the way the wings are attached to the hull on the design looks way to flimsy so hopfully your model will have a better connection. but its an awsome design but i think its more TMP than TNG so perhaps a lost era ship
I arrived, I created. I bought a steak of history and I ate it.

I don't like the wing attachment either thats why I havent connected the wings yet. I may move the wings back some so it will connect better

IMHO stay true to the design. If ya wanna move the wings,make it a varient then you'll have 2 ships for the price of one.

Antivyrus,

First, thanks for taking my suggestion on making this ship.  As far as I am concerned, we can't get enough Romulan ships.

Second, the ship is looking great.  As far I can tell, it is very true to the orginal design and I concur with MP that you should keep it that way but by all means go ahead with some artistic license and modify it accordingly.

I am definately looking forward to having this ship in my Romulan fleet.

Regards,

Pepperman

Thanks Peppermsn, on a side not PLEASE condense all your Rommies into one thread. It will be easier to track them all. And seriously I don't want any of them to slip through the cracks.........I have so many backrounds and as of yet no shhips to mate them to, and besides that I like your work.

The P'Vael is an original design by Brad Torgersen, proprietor of the FASA Trek site at http://www.sub-odeon.com/stsstcsmua/ .  His writeup says that the ship was built as a response to the alliance between the Klingons and Federation, so the ship would be late Lost Era, from around the late 2340's or 2350's.

Captain Pierce: thanks for the info on the design


Pepperman and MP: I have already desided to stay true to the concept, but going to do a refit also


designers backstory:

FANSHIP DESIGN & STATS: Brad R. Torgersen, 1997
P'vael Class Destroyer
Known sphere of operation: Empire-wide, with heavy concentrations along Klingon border.
Data Reliability: B
Major Data source: Starfleet encounter scans, Romulan Sector Intelligence
     Brief history: The P'vael class is named after a small, extremely strong avian predator native to the Romulan planet Remus.  Constructed as a direct response to the union of the Federation with the Klingon Empire, P'vael class vessels soon became notorious amongst both Klingon and Starfleet personnel as an unusually rugged and effective combat ship. Operating in squadrons of three to six ships and using a mixed bag of plasma bolt and disruptor beam technology, the P'vael did much to harass the Klingon Defense Force and Starfleet during the little ship's prime years.  By 2365, with over half the total production run of P'vael vessels having been lost in combat, and their spaceframes proving increasingly small and vulnerable when compared to the larger and much more advanced Klingon and Starfleet ship designs, the Romulan Star Navy began mothballing these old destroyers.  That changed, however, with the advent of the Jem'Hadar and the Dominion.  Seeing the immediate threat posed by the small and agile Jern'Hadar attack craft, and suffering from the loss of numerous Warbird class ships during the failed Romulan-Cardassian invasion of the Gamma Quadrant, the Star Navy began a rapid reintegration program that brought all available P'vael ships back into service.  Sporting improved technology on nearly every level, the P'vael is once again taking its toll on the varied foes of the Romulan Empire.

That's what F_W ,myself and a few others in OutaLance are for. We all have our specialties, you build 'em and we put clothes on 'em. ;) We all work together to get all the ships made.

Fallen Warrior/MP:  Unfortunately, I will have to pass on joining the team at this time.  Prior commitments and life in general don't permit it.  Nevertheless, I will be more than happen to share whatever Romulans that I come up with.

Oh by the way, I sent Brad an email to inquire whether or not he might still have a copy of the colorized version of his P'vael class.  Thought it might come in handy for textring.

Regards,

Pepperman
