A warm welcome for our brothers with green blood to the world of true warriors
 
Soon we will celebrate the brave choice of Romulans (and Remens) to join our fight against the bunch of tyrants who call themselves as federation of planets. Ha! what a peta'Q name they came up with for themselves. They look like a fools without any honor.

I hearby welcome our brothers to glorious KDF which has survived their backstabbing tactics. The federation call those coward tactics as diplomacy. Don't forget to enjoy the blood of wine and heart of targ. Once you are full then Onion girl(s) will be waiting for you in your bed.

Qapla'!

Having Romulans joining the Empire is wrong in so many ways its almost silly. I'm not really complaining. The Empire needs every soul it can get. Will be very strange though, seeing the green-blooded long-ears and their warbirds outside Qo'nos. From where I'm standing we might as well have invited the ancient enemy of ours, the H'urq.

Still, finally, Romulans will be here. Its about time and I am glad of it.

I recall reading that they once were allies long ago, hence the very similar ship designs and naming conventions. + The Cloaking tech.


But finding the precise / particular info on the history of cloaking technology / Romulan ships is rather hard.

A warm welcome to the Romulans...as long as they don't stand behind me, and keep their hands where I can see them at all times. :rolleyes:

The history is simple - Klingons never had cloaking. But the villains in Wrath of Khan were changed from Romulans to the more familiar Klingons late in the process, and suddenly Klingons had 'Birds of Prey' and cloaks.

Note that the 2009 JJ Abrams movie made things worse by calling D7s 'warbirds'.

I will be adding a Romulan Tactical Officer to my currently 5 KDF toons, I only really play one Fed toon these days and that is only for fed only stuff with fleet mates.

I just find KDF so much more satisfying. Battle Cruisers, both the Kamarang and the Vor'cha. Their temporal lock box ships look so much better than and make much more sense than any other lock box for my personal tastes. KDF Time ships to me look like a melding of KDF and Gorn technology, and fit my Gorn Science officer.

With that said The B'rel with the enhanced battle cloak never really appealed to me, sorry firing from cloak, just does not sit well with my Honor.

So my Romulan Tactical Officer will be flying a T'varo at end game, already purchased.

Besides the Dominion war showed the KDF and Romulans could have an uneasy alliance, and any Romulan that is KDF is one that is not a FED.

It may be a distasteful solution but better than allowing the Romulans to universally ally with the Federation.

I look forward to seeing you all in sector space.

Edit: It is not like they will get a space on the High Council, even a non voting spot like the Gorn. When that happens I will be up in arms.

It seems like the Klingons have short memories, what of the thousands of innocent Klingon civilians massacred by the Romulans at Khitomer and Narendra III? It's a spit in the face of those who died.

"Innocent" is a strong word for a militaristic empire :P

Innocent fits perfectly as those warriors and families who where massacred where attacked without provocation by the Romulans.
You cant devalue a person just becuase you dislike thier goverment.

They should come in handy during all those Tribble hunts :)

The vast majority of them will be going fed anyway...

Feds are getting plasmonic leech today, and they already have access to most of our other stuff, its just a matter of time before they have it all.
