The Romulan Temporal Ships

By Star Trek Online - August 09, 2013

Star Trek Online is excited to announce that, as of today’s maintenance, we have added the brand-new Romulan Temporal Ships to the game. The R’Mor Temporal Science Vessel is available for Romulan Republic players to win as the grand prize in the Temporal Lock Box, and the Mirror Universe Talvath Temporal Destroyer is available for Romulan Republic players to purchase in the Lobi store. These powerful ships have statistics matching the existing Federation and Klingon temporal vessels, but with new, unique Romulan ship designs.

Star Trek Online: Romulan Temporal ShipLore Overview

Tholian asteroid bases in the Azure Nebula still churn with activity, capturing numerous vessels from different timelines and salvaging their stolen technology. Fleets aligned with the Federation, the Klingon Defense Force, and the Romulan Republic have each been working against these Tholian captors, rescuing any vessels that they can from Tholian webs.

Recently, a new series of ships have been rescued from the clutches of the Tholians – Science Vessels and Destroyers that appear be Romulan ships from the 29th Century. These ships have already been stripped of most of their advanced technology, but some remain functional. As more of these ships are reclaimed, the Ferengi Lobi Consortium has been repairing and refitting them for use in modern-day warfare – and then selling them for a modest fee.

Among the ships that have been recovered were R'mor Class Temporal Science Vessels. The Romulan Republic's interest in these vessels cannot be understated. Unfortunately, much of the 29th century technology is missing from these ships – presumably stripped and now in the hands of the Tholian Assembly. But still much can be learned from these vessels, and a few have been rebuilt with conventional equipment that takes advantage of some of these ships' secrets.

Star Trek Online: Romulan Temporal ShipThe R’mor Class Temporal Science Vessel comes with a Tipler Cylinder Universal console module. The Tipler Cylinder can actually rewind time! The dense beryllium cylinder core of this module rotates at near light speed, allowing your ship to perform a Temporal Backstep and rewind time approximately 13 seconds. Your ship's position reverses, and some of your ship's hull and shield damage is restored. Additionally, the cooldown and recharge times on all your abilities are reset.

The Tipler Cylinder is part of a set, and can be used on any Timeship, including the R’mor, Talvath, Wells, Mobius, Korath, Krenn, Aeon or Rozhenko class vessels. If you also have a Manheim Device equipped, activating the Temporal Backstep will also cause all nearby foes to freeze in time until the sequence has ended.

Another type of Romulan ship that has been discovered is the Talvath Temporal Destroyer. Talvath Temporal Destroyers are not only from the future, but they also appear to be from the Mirror Universe. They are very similar to the R'Mor Temporal Science Vessels; however, it is not surprising that these ships seem to be built more for combat than for temporal science experiments.

Like its Prime Universe counterpart, this type of vessel has caught the Romulan Republic’s interest. Unfortunately, these ships have shared a similar fate in that much of their 29th century technology is missing and likely in the hands of the Tholian Assembly.

Star Trek Online: Romulan Temporal ShipThe Talvath Class Temporal Destroyer comes with a Manheim Device Universal console module. This console is based on Dr. Paul Manheim's time-gravity work in the early and mid-24th century. His experiments caused ripples in time, now called the Manheim Effect. The Manheim Device console can create quantum duplicates of yourself — one from your past and one from your future.

The Manheim Device is part of a set, and can be used on any Timeship, including the R’mor, Talvath, Wells, Mobius, Korath, Krenn, Aeon or Rozhenko class vessels. If you have the Manheim Device and the Tipler Cylinder console equipped, activating Temporal Backstep will also cause all nearby foes to freeze in time until the sequence has ended.

Star Trek Online: Romulan Temporal ShipUnique Bridge

The R’Mor Temporal Science Vessel, as well as the Mirror Universe Talvath Temporal Destroyer, has its own unique 29th century bridge. While visiting your bridge, you will also be able to access your Account Shared Bank, move into a Small Craft, and contact different ship departments for Duty Officer assignments.

NOTE: You must have enough Ship Slots to commission these new ships. If you do not have enough space, you can purchase additional slots from the C-Store or keep the ships in your bank until you do have space.

NOTE: The above stats for both ships are subject to change.
