The next faction will be the Romulans. Why?

1) There are already Romulan warship models ingame, just like Cardassian & Dominion ships, however...
2) The Romulans are the 3rd of the 3 major factions introduced by TOS.
3) The Romulans have long been a major player militarily and politically in the quadrant ever since their TOS introduction.
4) The Romulans have been embroiled in numerous conflicts with the Klingons and Federation. If you really get down to the nitty gritty of wars in Star Trek, most of the depicted or heavily mentioned ones involve the original 3 factions... Federation, Klingons, and Romulans. Even better is a combination of 2 against 1 every now and then.

The Romulans have been so important to the history and background of Star Trek, that not making them the next playable faction would be a**-backwards.

Even the Cardassians, so heavily depicted in DS9, have a mere footnote history in Star Trek compared to the Romulans.
