Romulan Star Empire

 

The Romulans are an offshoot people of the Vulcan people. The Romulan ancestors left the planet 2000 years ago and colonised the twin planets Romulus and Remus. The Romulan Star Empire is a galactic power in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, the governing body of the Empire is the Praetor. The Romulans can be passionate for a brief time but can be aggressive beyond belief. Their military secret organisation is the Tal Shiar. The Romulans are more known for their stealth and territory in combat. They have had multiple skirmishes with the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, such as the battle of Cheron and the battle of Klach D`kel Brakt.


Purpose in the Game

As the Klingons stage their war with the Cardassains the Klingons discover that the Cardassians are being secretly supplied weapons and information by an unknown source. Later the Klingons discover that the Romulans are the ones feeding the information that the Cardassians are using. With there betrayal the Klingons have to convince the Romulans to disembark from their Alliance (Klingon Style)

In that system they discover the Romulans have been cloaking there ships and have been spying on the supplying, the Borg are ordered to destroy all species in this System including the Romulans.

In their desperation for supplies and resources the Borg stumbled across a system that is rich in both of these. They are ordered to eliminate any indigence species in the area and the species they find is none other than the Romulans.

Federation Campaign

The Borg have set up a staging ground that threatens the Alpha Quadrant the USS Incursion has been ordered to discover where. Unfortunately when it discovers the Borg's base they notice it is located near the edge of the Romulan Neutral Zone. The Romulans threaten to attack any ships that crosses the border.

Picture of it in action

 
Warbird-Class The D'deridex class is favoured through out the whole Empire it is used in all there fleets. Its fire power is great enough to topple planetary Shields on colonies and bases. Shied Inversion Technology- This attack drains power from enemy vessels.

 

 

Phoenix-Class Thanks to Admiral Sela in the previous Star Trek Armada game Dr Oldan was able to continue his  research on the Phoenix project. This is the most powerful weapon in the Empire. Originally used as a last resort, should the Star Empire fall to invaders. This attack creates an expanding tear in the space time continuum and damages any ship in the attack vicinity.  All hands on this vessel die when the attack is unleashed. (Since the last Armada game the Romulan Empire have adapted a clocking devise on the ship making it easier to attack the enemy)
