New things I would like to see for Romulans
 
Hi I would like to discuss some suggestions for the Romulan side, feel free to add to this list and hopefully the Developers will listen.

1) Crafting desk for the Romulans somewhere on new Romulus please! It so annoying having to go to Qonos or to Memory Alpha just to do crafting
2) More Romulan specific missions such as involving senators, praetors, proconsuls etc. Romulans are meant to be tricky and involved in political back stabbing stuff like that. I really feel like this is missing
3) Ship self repair droids as seen in ENT United. That would be a cool Romulan reputation item
4) Some cooler animals on new Romulus, sorry but that octopus looking thing is just so stupid! I mean come on! It is meant to be some wild untamed world!

1.) There are already crafting consoles at New Romulus Command.

2.) Politics would certainly be an intersting idea for all three factions so this is a good idea.

3.) Not quite sure what you mean by "ship self repair droids". I hope you don't mean R2D2.:confused:
If you are referring to the Romulan Drone ships, those are already in the game as pets that can be launched by the Scimitar.

4.) You sure you took a serius walk around? There are more animals to see there. The scientists actually tell you about them as you walk around the adventure zone. And not all those animals are "cute" ;)

3) Ship self repair droids as seen in ENT United. That would be a cool Romulan reputation item Me: Please explain, do you want R2-D2, or the Drone Ships? If it's the latter, we have them as pets for the Scimitar
4) Some cooler animals on new Romulus, sorry but that octopus looking thing is just so stupid! I mean come on! It is meant to be some wild untamed world! Me: wut do you mean 'cooler animals', do you mean a giant 3 headed Lion?

Answers are above, labled 'me'

Are you sure you can do crafting there? The last time I checked there were "crafting consoles" that allowed the purchase of various crafting materials and offered the same items the vendors from Memory Alpha offer (the consoles even have Ferengi names :rolleyes:), but there wasn't a crafting console where one can actually craft.
Is this changed, because although there were consoles, we couldn't craft at NRC? :confused:

Just checked...looks like those darn things don't actually work.
Indeed that's false advertising.*doublefacepalm*
Haven't done and crafting since before F2P.
My apologies then, those things indeed don't do what they're supposed to.

I double-checked as well. 4 stations labeled "crafting" of one kind or another. All are actually stores rather than crafting tables.

I have the faintest impression, not quite a memory, that there was an active crafting table in the room, either in beta or right after the Romulan faction was released, but that it was pulled after just a couple of days. If so, I don't recall a "why" being given.

I don't know about the beta on Tribble, but I'm 100% sure that there never was an ability to craft in NRC on Holodeck. I know this because I made my Romulan instantly after the LoR patch was done and this was one of the first things I checked out when I hit level 10 and visited NRC, since my Rom is a maxed out crafter I wanted to do that there, but found out I have to go to Memory Alpha.

2. More info on the political situation in the New Romulan Republic would be a good thing (although I think I've almost gotten it figured out), especially in the context of missions. However, "Romulans are meant to be" statements often seem to favor one depiction of Romulans over others (and usually the favored depiction seems to be the Tal'Shiar of TNG, which are anything but representative of what "Romulans are meant to be"). In point of fact, D'Tan and other officials of the New Romulan Republic and/or military like to emphasize the values of "openness and honesty" over "secrecy and deceit" quite a lot. While no political state can exist long without some secrecy and deceit, there is such a thing as going to extremes, and the Tal'Shiar definitely went to, and beyond, extremes.

4. The Mother Nanov is quite awesome. There are many other fauna native to ch'Mol'Rihan as well.

To be honest I don't think there's anything to craft. There was Aegis but even that isn't very much worthwhile.

What I would like is for the Romulan faction to really become an independent faction. I don't have much problems with the end of the empire and the start of the republic, but I don't like all that much doing missions that state plainly I'm doing stuff for the Federation (or Klingon empire).


SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER
Even in the new FE, my Rom character could "claim" the Sphere for the Federation while the Romulan Commander advocated it for the Federation. I mean, come on....I could go with "It's for the alliance" option, But "it's for the Federation"?! A Romulan?!

I have to agree with Protogoth here. This is a new start for the Romulans who want to live differently to the Romulans we know of from TNG. Even then the Tal'Shiar were feared by the people and disliked by the military. Before the destruction of Romulus this was not possible.

There is even a cut scene where D'Tan politely tells the Tal'Shiar where to go.

I too would like to see more in depth story missionds on the situation. Maybe they can be gated behind the rep system like some of the missions already are. When you have reached tier 5 you have earned enough trust to start these missions.
