Another great Romulan for the fleet!  Swwetness, has some style similarities to the B2 bomber.

I luv the design overall, not sure I'm crazy about it having 4 nacelles  :)

It's a souped-up bird.

The Star Spangled Banner bring hither,
 O're Columbia's true sons let it wave.
May the wreaths they have won never wither,
 Nor it's stars cease to shine on the brave.

4 or 6 nacels? I see two on top as well as below and 2 on wings...

Regardless it looks big and badass... (Thumbs Up!)  ;D

thanks all!

1st: the B2 spirit and her predecessors as well as/and especially the German WW2 designs by Horten.  Nothing says flight like a big wing. :) Also I needed to intergrate the Bird elements as well.
2nd: the two inner nacelles can be swapped out for extra plasma cannons (DNH model). in later models the nacelles are doubled up at the wings , and the plasmas become standard...
3rd: 4 nacelles not 6, and one main impulse assembly in the "tail" with 2 more on the wings for manuvering (just cause she's big doen't mean she's slow or unwieldy)
4th: 320-350 metres long by 640-700 metres wide (I haven't settled on it yet).

Impressive, very impressive. If I'd reserve some time, I'd be happy to make her Atolm m8, you know that I'm weak on Rommie ships lol

looks good but it looks to advanced for TMP, this fits more into the Ent-C past TMP era

Maybe. +1 karma Terradhyne.

However, IMHO, the Romulan Melak as depicted in the Star Trek: New Worlds PC game was also a ship in late TMP that was also ahead of its time. It is the perfect candidate for the warbird used by the Rihannsu against the Klingons at Narendra III

This new RDN or RBB is no different in my opinion. Personally, I love the idea that the Rihannsu become more advanced than the Klingons or the Federation but can not exploit that edge due to being resource poor which in turn forces them into limited conflict with their former allies, the Klingons, and sets the stage for Narendra III and their adversaral status in the TNG timeline.

Just my two cents,
