Normally, I'd have said the Cardassians as a 4th playable species, but honestly, I don't think their current empire is in the correct state to be of any substantial threat to anyone just now. I would instead incorporate Cardassians (at least Bridge Officers) into the Federation and Romulan factions. I'd leave them out of the KDF (Klingons and Cardassians have never really got along, not even Worf and Garak managed to do so).

Although I would be more than happy with just the Federation, Klingon and Romulan, if we were to have a fourth, for me, it would have to be a Dominion one; and I'm talking Gamma Quadrant Dominion. They'd need to be their own faction though; in that they're not specifically at war with anyone, but they're protecting the founders. Have a sector (or three) where all their main missions are (though make them within the Gamma Quadrant). Access to the rest of the current galaxy can be through the wormhole.

Obviously you've got the ships, and you've got the species. Vorta and Jem Hadar are a given, and you could have the Dosi and Karemma (among others) as secondary species. I know the Karemma are primarily traders, but I'd suspect they'd make good engineers too. From what I remember about the Dosi, they remind me of Klingons. Brawling on the streets and the like, plus they're somewhat aggressive.

Edit: I wish people would quit asking about a Borg Faction. It wouldn't work. Unless you play as the Queen (then you'd be one Queen of many) you're looking at a non-borg playing borg species.
