I wonder if it's some type of level 50 unlock to play as a Romulan. Maybe it will be through some type of Romulan reputation unlock that allows you to fly a Rommie ship and be a Rommie character. It just seems highly unlikely they have had time to sport a complete Romulan faction.

Maybe it's just an intro to an Iconian/Sela alliance. Since we've been hearing about Denise Crosby coming into the mix as well.

The second says "Our shadow will dim the stars." With a lot of Romulan Ships on screen.

In Ask Cryptic: February 2013:
Q: (carcharodon1975) ?Beneath the Raptor?s Wings? has set people?s hope high on getting a playable Romulan faction in May. My question is? are we getting a playable Romulan faction in May?

Dstahl: We are not ready to begin discussing the details of what is in our May update, however the reference definitely suggests that it is related to Romulans in some way. We will share more news about the update and give a clearer response to your question as we get closer to May.

Q: (nometa) Will we be able to get a Romulan Warbird or a D?deridex class now that we?re helping the Romulans on New Romulus?

Dstahl: We discussed this opportunity when we were developing Season 7, however we decided that player interest in a Romulan faction is so high that we need to reserve these ships for a future update when we can implement a playable Romulan faction. So until then, these ships will be off limits to the Romulan Reputation System!


Also they haven't denied it!

So it seems like a Romulan Faction to me, or a really bad joke lol.
Considering the desire for a Romulan faction for some time, the not too terribly far in the past poll where that was the number one requested feature by a long shot, the lack of a denial thus far the the Update that is not Season 8 contains said Romulan faction, they either have a Romulan faction coming out in May, or they really want to piss a lot of people off so that the forum rage of players who want to be Romulans truly does blot out the stars.

Given this, plus the fact that Dan in recent interviews has said they are doing a new KDF tutorial, and that May will be the next time they do KDF only content, seems to me a fair bet that KDF will get rounded out as well, which might also point to a Romulan faction since that was a previously stated pre-req for a Romulan faction.
