Romulan Bird of Prey (TMP Era) Romulan Bird of Prey (TMP Era)

Transmission, 2006-09-08

This converted design from a game of old, "Starfleet Academt" by SSA provides the Romulans with a counter for the infamous Klingon Cruisers, the K'Tinga classes. With an equal amount of fire power, she can use her Romulan stealth to sneak up on one, deliver her payload then disable the target. Still, the design does not vary too much from the original Bird of Prey (Romulans) which keeps this in touch with what it is supposed to be. The textures have been darkened a little bit and Romulan-green added, making it a very stylish TMP Romulan cruiser.

As she's TMP era, don't expect her to be going toe-to-toe with a Sovereign class anytime soon, unless you decide she should get a "refit". Still, the ships are powerful and they can easily take out other cruisers equivalent of other races so expect these to leave debris in space. Romulan fans, I recommend this a lot, download now.

History:
-----

The model design itself comes from the very old game Star Trek: Starfleet Academy.

Being someone who used to have the game (and still does, even though it no longer runs on the more advanced computers), this vessel used to be one of the most powerful ships on it.
Being loaded with devistating Plasma Torpedoes (that would easily take out anything from an Oberth, Constitution, or even Excelsior).

It is what many would think of the vessel that came as the Romulans' response to the Klingon K't'inga, and being on the TMP era.

This ship in Starfleet Academy was a monster. It had 6 Disruptors forward and 2 of those grossly powerful (in TMP era) Plasma Torpedo launchers. Many an Excelsior lost a slugging match with me when I used it, course you had to get the oh so critical first hit in. If you came in from behind and fired first the Excelsior never could wound you fast enough to win. Constituions you could win a slugging amtch straight out with, and Mirandas and Oberths died in mere seconds. So MORE than a match for the old K'Tinga.

Indeed the Garuda was a beast, although, the Centurion is a little weaker. Strange "refit' really, having a third of the disruptors of its pre-refit form. Perhaps they intended to give her heavy plasmas in KA but never did (there are a number of discreptancies on klingonacademy.com that vary from the official manual)
