I have decided that I will just keep my top level KDF and use them as farmers - as my Farmer Romulan grows up and joins the Federation. I just can't come around to the idea of being a Klingon and accepting a Romulan or being a Romulan and accepting a klingon - a "klingomulan"
I think you still live in the Trek universe before J.J. happened. And I don't blame you for that, personally I'd prefer it as well.
But with what has hapened in Romulan space and what has become of the Romulan Star Empire, it wouldn't make sense in STO for Feds. and KDF to ally just to finish off a scattered and crushed people. I'm not saying that the Romulan faction couldn't have been the RSE anyway, but after Cryptic's decision to involve them into power-fights and assasinations, then introduce the faliure that is Sela as the Empress and have her dissapear, giving Obisek control over the forge and finally creating a civil war in Romulan space after that, it wouldn't make sense for us to have A Fed./KDF alliance to stand against Romulans since obviously the Romulans are nowhere near of capable to handle that kind of opposition at the moment.

So in essence, the direction that Cryptic decided to take the story in STO makes more sense to have Romulans allying to Fed. & KDF, then Fed. & KDF allying to crush already defeated Romulans. Besides, these are D'Tan's Romulans after all, makes sense for them.
Because true Starfleet Captains command Exploration Cruisers!
Thank you Cryptic for finally giving me MY SHIP!!!
