Re: D'deridex class Warbird vs Galaxy class
...Wouldn't be so sure about it. The D'deridex is probably just about the only type of Romulan ship that gets to travel abroad (for any appreciable distance before getting caught for the illegal act, that is), so the Star Empire would certainly wish to have exploration gear aboard!
Even if the purpose is to seek out and destroy new life and civilizations, the seeking out part calls for dedicated instrumentation.
Which is why I said "likely don't exist or exist in far smaller quantities
on the D'deridex".
