New Romulus is a well done zone, but it does feel more like a side game, not a main story element.
You haven't played the New Romulus story episodes, though!

I'm fully prepared to pass some judgment but not until I've seen more of the story.

This is the introduction to the story.

If New Romulus is a musical score, the dailies are the overture. They set the stage for where we are. It's the establishing shot, in film terms.

You don't HAVE to play anything on New Romulus more than once for rep. You'll have to repeat SOMETHING for rep but you get a broad choice of what to repeat.

And by not repeating anything, you'd still be at almost Tier 3 in rep, by which point you'd have new things (including FE style story missions) that unlock on New Romulus.

You barely have to repeat anything unless you want gear or vanity items.

If you repeat all the New Romulus stuff once a week, you're absolutely golden.
