Romulan Valdore/Mogai Class?

Is there any detailed info about this class of warbird? Im having a hard time finding specific info about it, which sucks because IMO its the sexiest Romulan warbird yet.

Re: Romulan Valdore/Mogai Class?

TrekCore had a good-sized concept art of the Valdore in the Nemesis section, but as far as actual information, I'm not really aware of anything. Which is too bad, since I as well think it's one of the cooler alien ships we get to see.

The recent run of novels identify the Valdore as being a Mogai Class Warbird after a large predatory bird on Romulus.

The customizable card game calls the Valdore a Norexan Class Warbird.

There are about three different names for it.

It is IMHO the sexiest ship in the Star Trek Universe. Unfortunately as it has only made one appearance on screen there is not much known about it. Sure I read somewhere it was a lot more mobile than the slow and cumbersome D'deridix Class. But I can remember where

I seem to recall Norexan being the canon name supposedly, though I prefer Valdore myself. Norexan sounds like a brand of cough syrup.

I usually refer to it as "Valdore-type". I'd love it if there were an official canon class name, but I doubt there ever will be. I really like that ship.

Ask your doctor if Norexan is right for you.

The D'Derridix had more girth.
Difficult to disable.
Highly manuverable for a ships of it's size
Incredibly powerful.
Highly intimidating.

The Norexean looks and is fragile.
It's too big and easy to hit to have shields that weak.
That's a ridiculous wingspan and not enought weapons.

Design wise I don't really care for it.
It would have worked better as a bird of prey. It would have been fast mauverable and powerful and dominating in numbers

The look is...ok
It doesn't displease me personally.

Side effects include coughing, wheezing, hacking, emphysema, asthma, runny nose, upset stomach, diarrhea, cramps, bloating, migraines, high power bill, intermittent satellite service, mold in the fridge, and in rare cases, even death.

Hmmmm. The Valdore/Mogai looks almost Klingon.

Because those tiny struts between the head and the wings on the Warbird don't look fragile.

I've never thought that the Warbird looks "intimidating", sorry. It always felt ungainly and "blagh" to me.
