This was originally designed as a replacement for the "King Condor" in StressPuppy's TOS Homeworld mod, the Romulans' "Phase 2" ship. Aen'rhien translates as "bloodwing," which according to the Diane Duane "Rihanssu" novels is a large bird much like a condor.

Why does some of these romulan ships have the klingon necks and heads. I dont like them sorta makes them klingon/romulan hybrids. :(

Nice model though.

Because this and the Hlai refit date from the time in the late-TOS/early-TMP era when the Klingons and Romulans were allied and trading technology. FASA has several Rom ships with booms & pods inspired by the Bird of Prey, which in their universe was a joint Klingon/Romulan design.

The boom and pod of this and the Hlai refit are inspired by the Klingon booms and pods, but we've also tried to make them distinct and not just use any existing boom or pod. That we'll be saving for a bit later... ;)

Ever thought about trying a Y shape neck with two heads/bridges at the end. Dunno why two heads lol, but it would be different and unique in a way.

Oh and since its in this forum which game is it going in? As if its going in BC I would like to see some high res texture maps, perhaps. If at all possible.

Here's a thought: perhaps a two-headed design with one being the bridge and the other being a torp launcher. I know that if I was the captain of a ship like this, I wouldn't want to be sitting right above the torp launcher.

Yeah nice idea. Perhaps a twin plasma torpedo launcher design or somit for 2nd head or somit.

Useful for say attacking stations or bombardments.

I will only be putting it in SFC; specifically, SFC2. However, it may find its way into BC at some point.

It'll be suitably high-res, don't worry. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

The twin-headed boom, I think, would be tough to pull off... although I might run the idea past CJ for a future ship just to drive him crazy... :D

Why not have lightning shooting out its ass, and while we are at it have a big hand sticking out its side with an uber mace to whack them feds upside the head! (major sarcasim here, but you get the point) [img]tongue.gif[/img] [img]tongue.gif[/img]

In other words.. Let the man build his ship his way!

After the Klink/Rommie alliance Rommie designs almost always had a klingon inspired neck and head.

The B'rel was initially supposed to be a stolen romulan ship, but the idea got the ax for whatever reason. FASA has the B'rel as a joint klingon/romulan design.

Many fan built Romulan ships are inspired by joint klingon/romulan influence..I guess being that they were once allies kinda sparked that. just like unity station in SFC3 was a joint federation/klingon endeavour, and notice after the feds allied with the klinks federation ships stopped being "round"
