Cryptic, please don't make the Romulans a wuss!

I was really hoping to play the classic Romulans, Tal'Shiar and all. But I actually I don't mind a fresh start. But... please do not make a second Federation or make us play those fake Romulans on New Romulus.

Aliens have the right to be different from the US!!! It is bad enough they ruined the Ferengi on DS9. Please do not mess up our Romulans with that boring, arrogant Western narcissism!!

Romulus have been destroyed. The empress assimilated. The Tal Shiar are behind the homeworld destruction, and are puppets from another power.

Do you really think we can have the Tal Shiar suddenly coming back and help the RSE ?

Also, in TNG (the episode with Troi posing as a Tal Shiar), we can see the Tal Shiar are not really liked by the people and the military. They are ruthless and arrogant.

I don't mind having a "not so evil" Romulan faction. At least, we may avoid some cliche.

I can't imagine that they have removed the Fed vs Rom missions, or the Romulan 'Enemy Encounters', etc. So there must be 'good' Romulans and 'bad' Romulans. So presumably you play as some faction that opposes the 'bad' Romulans and helps New Romulus, etc.

Here is a thought the "Bad Romulans" are Tal'Shiar or Remnant RSE Military hardliners that wont give up what they once had and lost.

pity we wont be playing the Romulan Star, I was hoping we would be playing a kind of restoration movent aiming to restore the empire to glory, reforming away the worse parts of the empire(reconciliation with remans etc.) and all that.

I just hope the faction will be at least somewhat anti federation by the end.

Apparently Jack Emmert and Daniel Stahl are both big Klingon fans. But, well ... you can fill in the blanks.

Of course neither of them actually write the stories.

The playable Romulans will be the New Romulus versions. The Tal Shiar are universal bad guys in league with the Iconians, who want to destroy all life in the galaxy. You're not going to be playing as part of the Tal Shiar, unless the storyline involves some how freeing them of the Iconians' influence.

Whether or not they are "a wuss" depends on you.

There actually isn't anything which says the Romulan Republic is related to New Romulus.

It's just naturally assumed. But that might be a fool's errand, because D'Tan's secessionists
look to be tying themselves to vulcan ideals. So would that make them still actual 'romulans'?

The Romulan Republic might just be another splinter faction of the RSE with more justice
to it's goals, but nonetheless still very much a 'romulan' (in terms of ethinicity) centric faction.
