Ok I am noticing people are labelling missions as Romulan friendly, that is while they are not written specifically for Romulan players they can be played by Klinks/ Feds and Romulans. What are all the boxes that must be checked to make your mission Romulan friendly?
Off the top of my head:
1. You cannot have the mission take place on the players ship
2. It cannot be in any social zone where Romulans are not permitted.
3. The Rank of the player must be fill in dialog instead of just writing Captain.
4. You may need to add more dialog options to accomodate Romulan players.
What are your thoughts?
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)

No Lincoln is correct. Calling someone "Captain" if they command a ship regardless of rank is a Human tradition. There's no evidence to suggest Romulans observe it as well. You're better off using [Rank].
The Foundry Roundtable live Wednesdays at 7:30PM EST/4:30PM PST on twitch.tv/thefoundryroundtable Forum Logic dictates that if the devs don't do what a poster wants, they therefor actively hate what that poster is advocating for.
Forum Logic =/= Real Logic
But it would be a task to make them sound properly romulan i guess, Would take time to get the culture right perhaps
These are the Voyages on the STO forum, the final frontier. Our continuing mission: to explore Pretentious Posts, to seek out new Overreactions and Misinformation , to boldly experience Cynicism like no man has before.......
You also have references to Starfleet and Federation that you need to be careful of. Examples would be "report to Starfleet", "you Federation types" etc. etc. Plus when someone grants you the mission, it reason needs to make sense if you're not Federation. Any characters from your ship also are risky due to uniform and race.
Second, references to Romulans. If they're always about Romulans in third person then it makes it sound like you're not one.
