You will get some new Missions, and access to some Fed or KDF Missions - depending on who you ally with. We don't know how many Missions. There's a new blog coming out today, in a couple of hours. Maybe that will give us more clues.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

False. They have their own dedicated storyline up until about level 40, at which point they move into the faction neutral stuff like the FEs and Undine content.

Having their own storyline doesn't mean they have enough independent missions to get to level 40 without some additional help - and we know they have access to their ally's missions.

Only via team play.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

My understanding was the the Fed or KDF can only do Rom missions via team-play, but Roms can do Fed or KDF missions if they are allied with the Faction.

I really hope people keep their expectations in check (yeah i know who am i kidding?)

they will have their own storyline but dont expect 40-50 solid levels of missions. there is no way they can hammer out that much content. it will most likely use the FE already in place, possibly some converted missions, and the usually array of events and what not to get us there.

there will be unique romulan missions, there many even be a fair bit but dont expect it to look anything as full as the fed faction.

Romulans are FED and KDF playable races. Romulan story, ships and costumes don't make a faction. If you like new story, enjoy. If you like new ships, enjoy. If you like new costumes, enjoy. But dont call it faction because you are playing for FED or KDF, your starbase is FED or KDF, your Dutty system is FED or KDF, etc, etc.

I just wanted to point this out:

[dStahl] Yes. Romulan captains and ships will be able to use the Duty Officer System and we are adding Romulans and Remans to Duty Officer Packs. We also have exclusive Romulan DOFF packs planned in the near future. Romulans will be able to completely outfit their ships with Romulan/Reman DOFFs and BOFFs. FED and KDF captains will also be able to obtain Romulan and Reman bridge officers. We also plan to offer Romulan Republic flavored Duty Officer Missions.
