Q: m.parsons: Can you tell us what discussions or plans there might be concerning when the Romulans become a playable faction what we can maybe expect?
A: The leads on the project discuss playable Romulans all the time. The biggest concerns that I've pointed out in previous interviews is that it would be very difficult to introduce a new Faction until we feel the Klingon Empire has an improved Faction experience. That said, we still discuss how and when we would introduce the Romulan faction. Obviously, with their homeworld destroyed, it would be interesting where they call "home". The latest Feature Episode series is starting to delve into their story and show just how fractured their people are at the moment. Perhaps the Romulan Empire will split into multiple factions where one will join the Federation and the other the Klingon Empire... That's an interesting idea.
As someone desperate to play a Cardassian even if its in the Federation or Klingon empire and not an Alien that looks a lot like a Cardassian is there any chance that we will see them added to the C-Store soon. I know ideally you would have an infinite budget and be able to put all the factions in the game but as this hasn't been the case and after waiting a year for Cardassians it is very clear that the Romulans will be added if any 3rd faction is and that doesn't seem to be foreth coming.
As such can you please have someone work over the weekend
and sort out a Cardassian playable race and maybe (though not required) some Cardassian uniform bits.
