Flying Fortress D'deridex by Euderion Flying Fortress D'deridex by Euderion
Named after a former Praetor of Romulus, the D'Deridex class is a crown juwel of the romulan Military in the later half of the 24th century.
The 1353 meters long warbird design referred to as D'deridex-class, B-type Warbird, or simply Warbird class was one of the largest and most powerful mainstays of the Romulan Star Empire. It served as the backbone of the Romulan fleet during the Dominion War.

The D'deridex-class warbird was classified as a heavy battle cruiser by Starfleet. Using a forced quantum singularity as a power source and the latest in Romulan cloaking technology, the D'deridex was not only one of the most advanced vessels in the Romulan Star Empire, but also in the Alpha Quadrant. These warbirds were roughly twice as long as a Federation Galaxy-class starship.

Vessels of this class were still being constructed in the late 2370s, before being slowly phased out in favor of the more agile and modern Norexan-class warbirds in the 2380s.

When I first saw this behemoth what was it, The Neutral Zone, yeah I think. I was: Oh wow, I want it.  

Design which aged very well in the franchise compared to many half-ass jobs for Federation starship (by Paramount) held by some untold constraints on creativity and design. Romulans they are the Italians of ship design in the 19/20th century. Italian warships not always were spectacular performers, more often than not were terrible, horrible disasters, but almost 100% of them were super pretty. Romulans have excellent quality ship building :D (Big Grin) and beauty side - they got it covered big time. 

I would love to stand between these pylons/nacelles! La la la la

These babies are super big; over a kilometer! This ship would make the Defiant look like a fly.

It was one of the most impressive ships during the TNG Era.

Didn't know star trek had something so ominous looking in the franchise. Besides the borg cubes! Great work here.

These behemoths were bigger than a Galaxy class and could go toe to toe with a Sovereign too

The D'deridex need some upgrades to beat an Sovereign class with the new Quantum Torpedos and all. D'deridex is a decades old ship, powerful, but not the newest.
Possible, that there is a "C Type" D'deridex out there, when the TNG version was a "B Type".

I`m sure there was a C type D`Deridex come 2378  just before the Valadore class came around

Star Trek was stuck in the "Cruiser" class for almost anything. This beast should be a Super Dreadnought. I would not want to face it in battle.

Dreadnought for sure. I think the term super Dreadnought is reserved for such special ships such as the reman Scimitar.

I don't know the Scimitar. Maybe one day you will introduce the ship to me.

Maybe in future. At this time i dont have a Scimitar model ready.

One day the Star Trek Universe will learn how to define starship classes. If it's your largest, best armed and best armored/shielded ship? It's a battleship.

Sorry to be such a downer for such a great picture.

Yep, thats a big problem in the two "Star" Universe Trek and Wars.
For me the D'deridex is a typical Dreadnought. On the same height as the Sovereign class or the Klingon Negh'Var.

Yep, that is intended by the Romulans, because all romulan ships are build in the likeness of an condor like romulan god.
