File Description

Whilst not much is known about the Star Trek universe between the maiden voyage of the Enterprise B till the destruction of the Enterprise C, many people have taken it upon themselves to create ships which would neatly slot into this missing part of history. This is one such example and a fine one at that. The Vor'reel is the Romulan’s answer to both the Federation Ambassador class and the newly constructed Klingon Vor'Cha class, but as is displayed in the readme, whilst the Vor'reel 'did the job' at the time, it was growing more apparent that something else was needed to bolster the Romulan imperial navy; enter the D'Deridex. As instructed, this ship would not be as powerful as the D'Deridex but would be likely on terms and perhaps more powerful than the Vor'Cha and Ambassador, meaning it still has quite a realm of power, as reflected in the odf's. Given two disruptors and a heavy plasma torpedo (watch out bases!) along with a re-enforced hull, the ship will be quite a knock-down, but she does take a long time to build. Nevertheless, she packs a punch.

Players of 'Legacy' may find the design reminiscent of the Romulan TMP battleship in it, but I believe this wasn't the intended case. It does indeed look very nice and fits in with the era well and complements to the well-incorporated Borg textures which many mods lack. Complete with build button and wireframe, the only thing missing is indeed an admiral's pic, but that doesn't take too long to do and you can make your own one (I always find that to be fun anyhow). All in all a very decent ship that should play well for a race that doesn't have too many ships going for it (well, compared to the Federation at least). I'd recommend using it for strikes en masse, but don't rely on it to hold its own in a prolonged fire-fight. It's very powerful torpedo will give it an edge entering combat, but its reload time will harm you. The ship also comes with optional high resolution textures to make the ship look even better making this advisable to download.

*****************ROMULAN VOR'REEL CLASS***************
*******************README FILE*************************
********************Version 1**************************

During the early 24th century, the Federation fielded the new Ambassador class starship. The Romulan Imperial Senate decreed that the Imperial Navy required a new battleship. A short time later, the first Vor'reel class battleship came out of the shipyard at Remus.
The Vor'reel being a capable warship faired very well against all, then current Federation and Klingon ships. After the Klingons presented the mighty Vor'cha, the Romulan Imperial Navy replaced the Vor'reel with the larger, more powerful D'deridex class Warbird. Slowly phasing out the Vor'reel.

The Vor'reel will fit nicely with a Pre-TNG setting or have a slightly re-written ODF for a Post-TNG setting.
