Thank you for your quality reviews as always. I'm really glad I'm getting better at the proofreading.

As for your concerns:

Optional Dialog Rework:
Few Big Issues with this, a few more that aren't worth going into.
-Although a smooth way to make sure players see the progress, it causes too much problems if someone wants to go back and read something again. Worse, it limits and in some places erases any kind of group play if they want to take part in it. The only dialog triggers that can be used to "mark off" other dialogs would be read by all party members, in addition using the triggers to prompt them rather then contacts (as most of them are now) severely limits who you see you can speak to. Additionally, it makes the rotating and changing dialog in some contact's lists as objectives progress even more tricky to form, even if most players miss that dialog already.
-I would have to transpose ALL of my optional dialog to new trees, cut and paste. Reselecting the emotions and the costumes of the speakers. Considering the mess the Klingon Dialog list is as is, that mission alone would be an undertaking in attempting it.
Like I said, there are more reasons I'm going to side with them as is, but those were the two big ones. Still a good suggestion, but I'm gonna keep mine as a stylistic choice.

Romulan Ground Combat:
-The romulan faction is actually the best suited for how I want the Kai to fight, that does include thalaron weapons. I never necessarily wanted them to play fair, even if their lead ambassador said they weren't going to try and disintegrate you. Also, keeps the mission 16+ for both Kling and Fed.

Mission Brief:
Although I want the big bold letters saying DIALOG INTENSIVE and 1H -3H up as the first thing to read, the secondary explanation text was only next to it back when we had the 500 char limit and I needed to mash all the [missioninfo] together to get it in. I will be splitting it up, and putting the faction different mission disclaimer after the mini-blurb of what the mission is actually about.

Again, thanks for your work and viewpoint! I always appreciate everything you call to light and all you can add! Keep up the good work!
