The possiblity of a future Cardassian/Dominion faction is something they mentioned and its got me excited.

What would you like to see for this faction if/when they do it?

Jumping the gun a little, aren't you?

Yes, it was mentioned as a possibility, but honestly, if such a faction is to follow in the footsteps of this Romulan catastrophe, then I'd rather them leave it well alone. I'd much rather never play as a Cardassian/Jem Hadar/Vorta that I would to play as one that is being forced to pick a side between the Federation or Klingons.

The perfect opportunity here would have been for Cryptic to leave the Romulan as Neutral. Sure, they'd have skirmishes with the Klingons, and maybe even some Federation forces (Section 31 for all we know) but they should never have been inducted into this stupid war.

Honestly that doesn't bother me.

I really think people should seriously consider requests for additional factions when looking at what has and will be delivered first. Because in all likelihood, that's what we will get at best.

I can't see it happening personally seeing as half their fleets ships have been tucked into lockboxes...

This whole war nonsense has been the bane of the game from the start. It seems to have completely straitjacketed the game and the story in many ways. I dont think it would be so bad if the war actually did something, but all the best parts are where there fed and kdf are allied again anyway (Borg encounters etc.)

The Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend and all that?

The Klingons and Federation want to fight each other (the Klingons want to conquer the Federation, the Federation want to attempt peace (again) with the Klingons). The Borg want to assimilate everything, and everyone. They are the bigger threat.

if these were new factions, especially in the dominion sense, I'd think there would be entirely new ships, the ones in lockbox are only 4 ships out of the entire alliance, Cardassian-Galor (1), Jem'hadar Attack Ship (2) Jem'hadar Heavy Escort Carrier (3) Jem'Hadar Dreadnought Carrier (4), average ship setup per faction roughly 18 for basic level ships, not including skins, and C-Store ships.

so of total the 18 ships, the four listed above could be the way they are, but not offered to the factions, but instead, newer more time appropriate ships could be in their place.

makes perfect sense, when they release there faction, if you want a T5 ship you either get it for Lobi or from the exchange or possibly a re run of lock boxes lol, and if you want to fly an escort pony up 600million EC first lol

Not really. The official poll a few years ago had the Cardassians coming in second behind the Romulans as "What faction would you like to play after the Klingons?"

The Carfedians, Jem'Hadarfleet and Fedta would all be welcome additions to the UFP as they gear up to smash the Tholians once and for all!
