Romulan is live - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kg0B0ZhGp4k

IRW Belak 3-2-6-4 TTWWC 30 SP Unique
When defending, you may re-roll 1 of your [battlestation] results. If your ship is cloaked, you may re-roll all of your [battlestation] results.

Generic 3-2-6-3 TWCC 28 SP

Captain Lovok Skill 3, 2SP Unique
During the Modify Attack Dice step, you may re-roll all of your blank results. If you do so, place an Auxiliary Power Token beside your ship. Look may field the “Tal Shiar” Talent Upgrade.

Tal Shiar (Elite Talent, 5 SP) Unique
During the Planning Phase, after all ships have chosen their maneuvers, you may discard this card to target a ship at Range 1-3 and loot at that ship’s maneuver dial. Then place a [battlsestation] Token beside your ship. You cannot perform a [battlsestation] Action (even as a free Action) this round. This Upgrade may only be purchased for a Romulan Captain.

Tallera (Crew, 3 SP) Unique
Action: Target a ship at Range 1-2 and roll 1 attack die. If you roll a [hit] or [crit] result, discard this card and 1 [crew] Upgrade on the target ship.

Aft Disruptor Emitters (Weapon, 2 SP, 3 Attack Dice, Range 1-3)
Attack: Disable this card to perform this attack. You may only fire this weapon at a ship that is not in your forward firing arc.

Modified Cloaking Device (Tech, 5 SP)
On the round you perform a [cloak] Action, your ship can only be target locked by a ship that is within Range 1 of your ship. In addition, you may roll your full defense dice in spite of the presence of an opposing ship’s [scan] Token while you are cloaked.

So excited that news is getting out!

The re-roll BS ability is great while cloaked, nice little nod toward making cloaking more effective.


This means you're holding a Vor-cha right?! Huh huh? Surely?

EDIT: just read the rest of them and love it! Tallera is painful, Aft Disruptor Emitters 2SP for 3 attack anywhere is useful help toward the rubbish D'Deredix arcs! Modified Cloaking Device is nice - Scimitar is more invisible now, but it is 5SP so might make you think twice...

and thanks!!!

Does this mean blind ships will be larger than 30 sp going forward?

Blind ships are now 40 SP. It was a little line in the Temporal Cold War instructions that came out, so very easy to miss.

Fantastic blind booster. I think I'm more excited for this one than I was for any of the previous ones. Really excited to see what else is in store for us now.

Great work on the video. Looking forward to more.

Gagh! You're killing us!! Haha... In fairness, it would be the hardest thing to be sitting on 10 (TEN!!) shiny spaceships that no-one else knows anything else about... Just over 6 weeks until they are due for release... when's the next one we instantly begin to ponder....

David, as usual, I repost your great stuff over at our german STAW forums www.NeutraleZone.net, but link back here and to your video as the source.

Thanks for providing us with the information. I write (yes, very oldschool...) STAW reviews for a german blog (weiterspielen.net), so I can fathom how much work you have to put into the effort.

I'd love to be able to provide some frist-hand-news like you to the german fan base, using either the blog or the forums, as a platform, but over here we're a bit out of the loop and lag behind, timewise. Therefore re-posting your great stuff must suffice, and it feels nearly as good

Awesome back, Thanks for sharing. I am a monster Romulan fan, WK please Keep the Warbirds coming, I want them all

The only down side is that I want at least 3 for that Aft Disruptor Emitters

Lovok will be pretty good on the Valdor, more green


Khazara will love the aft disruptors.

Tellara will be great for begining to crack the armour in those fed defense builds.



Hey David jsut watched your video you are correct, that is Senator Vrenak. That might be a good sign for us. Kor, Mendak, Liviana, and Desoto were all released as generic captains before their unique versions.

Also looks like for the generic ship they just used the generic that came with the Khazara.

And if we ever do get a unique Vreenak, I look forward to including both versions in the same fleet so they can argue over which is the real one and which one...isn't whistle

Pretty interesting. Shows that they can make the much-maligned D'deridexes good and fun with the right upgrades in the pack (like the Haakona). I like most everything here. Will be a good addition for Romulans.

The Romulans sure are getting a staggering array of Warbirds. This is the... 5th? For them (not counting the MU Terix).

Out of curiosity did you start with this one because it was particularly interesting, or because it was just the tip of the iceberg and its going to get better from here? I hope the latter. cool

He can confirm or deny, but it looks to me like its the translucent plastic like the Vrax and the cloaked ships (but green, of course).

I see what you did there.

It's the exact same as the Vrax from what I can tell.

Romulan is the faction that John Knoph (the fellow who spoiled the USS Intrepid for us on Tuesday) requested. Well, one of a couple, but it was the one I could accommodate.

Honestly, I haven't even looked at all the cards yet, I have opened them all to see what all the ships are, every pack I have looked at has something that highly intrigues me. It may not be absolutely amazing, but I think that something can be made from it.

Thank you for posting these. However, your time is valuable and you don't really want to lock yourself into having to do this everyday for ten days. Why don't you just post them all and we promise not to watch more than one a day? Deal? whistle

Nope, that's part of my "gag" order. I kid Wizkids. It's just a standard NDA.

That ship ability is a nice defense buff, and the captain's ability a solid for attacks. Too bad you are limited to what is in the booster, because he just about screams for a photon torpedo to be added - rerolls blanks, BS->crit conversion from the weapon... not bad.

I can see this ship showing up pretty often outside of the blind buys... and really nice upgrade in the aft disruptors, too. Going to drive the prices on up eBay...

I don't think agreeing to do a series of 12-13 preview videos complete with editing and voiceover work over a period of two weeks qualifies as "lazy," normally I'd think it's just the opposite.

Great work on the first video, hopefully these blinds will come down to the same-as-retail price point on eBay the previous blind boxes have, the I.R.W. Belak is already something I'm much more interested in paying for than many of the recent retail releases.

I think you're taking what I said a little too seriously, and I hope David took my comment in as intended. I am very grateful for his work and for the videos, my comments have been just a bit of sarcastic fun.
