Star Trek Online - Kilij Romulan Dreadnought by AdamBurn Star Trek Online - Kilij Romulan Dreadnought by AdamBurn
(This is not official Artwork)

I'm a bit of Star Trek Online fan mostly because I like Star Trek and flying around in big space ships shooting stuff is fun. My favourite all time Star Trek ship was the Scimitar first seen in the movie Star Trek Nemesis, ever since I always wanted a game to have that ship in it, eventually STO released said ship and I was happy.

Recently they ahve announced the possibility of adding an increased level cap and with a new higher rank comes new higher ranked ships, so I took it upon myself to design a kind of Scimitar Retrofit which would look like an evolution of the Scimitars design, but with more awesome sauce.

This is the Kilij super dreadnought, my idea is that the wings originally fold in and the nose leans up to be straighter when its out of combat, then during combat the wings extend and the nose tapers downward like an eagles beak, like its focusing on its target ready to strike, although rather than striking with talons and a razor sharp beak this strikes with an unholy volley of superheated plasma :)


If anyone form STO development team comes across this PLEASE PLEASE MAKE IT :ahoy:

so how do you feel about the designs of the new T6 Scimis? imo, not as badass as yours, but still super cool.

I think they took them in an interesting direction trying to make them more Romulan, which from the games stand point makes sense. I got all three to mix and match appearances but honestly I ended up going back to the original Scimitar appearance for a couple of reasons. One is that the new designs are too simple, too smooth, there is not fine detail or little nuances in the design of the hull like there is in the original scimitar which has loads of little bits and extra geometry that helps show the scale of the ship, the new designs are too plain and look like a single simple shape that's also much smaller than the original. 
My biggest issue though is with the wings, the textures on the new wings are MASSIVE and really low quality, it makes the wings look small and messy as the textures don't line up and cut bits off if you equip a shield visual, the original Scimitar wings were big and detailed, lots of plates and again it gave it a sense of scale, the new ones feel rushed. And that's pretty much my beef, they feel rushed, no real thought or planning, just handed it to the intern and said "make this as best you can" Sadly it shows as being of a significantly lower quality than the past ships :ahoy:

Looks like a tactical version while the Shamshir looks like a sci variant of the scim classes, now will there be another design (hopefully engineer) by chance?

Damn man, you should be part of their development team. If you can make the Scimitar look like it would make Worf and Data shit themselves Id love to see what you would do with the Odyssey and Bortasqu classes

That was one of the few ships I got where I thought to myself, "This thing is too powerful."

Seriously though, that was such a great ship, in movie and game.  In fact, in the game, it's still so powerful that it probably still keeps up with teir 6 ships.

I was just wondering, did you figure on the ship's dimensions? It would be interesting to see how it stacked up to a Galaxy Class or a Sovereign Class.

Its basically the next version of the Scimitar Warbird from the Nemesis movie so it's pretty big :ahoy:

Because I was thinking, if it was a bit larger, only a bit, it'd still be as maneuverable as the Scimitar was. Seriously, that thing ran circles around the Enterprise. That's very impressive considering it's half a mile long. I mean wow.

While the original ship looks alright, this blows that out of the water. Fantastic aggressive design here. "She's a predator".

Yeah, no.  I'd rather see something that actually looks Romulan instead of the bastard love-child of the Scimitar (which, by the way, was a Reman-built ship, not Romulan) and the Narada.  And though there are continued rumors of a level cap increase, Cryptic has said multiple times that they don't want to piss off everybody and his mother by rendering the T5 ships outdated.

It'd be a fine Reman ship, though.

Coooool, that's great work! Due to it's shape, the ship would obviously be overly vulnerable once the shields are gone, but they won't usually let things get this far...
