A Borg-fied Romulan shuttle/fighter/small craft would have been nice.

The problem is I have around 500 purple doffs on fed side, plus most of the c-store ships (and therefore consoles).

It's pretty much a no-brainer. I'll still roll one of each, but the KDF Romulan will be delegated to neglected doffer alt and my fed will turn into my new main alt.

S'just how it is mate
I'm going KDF because that's what the result of our fleet vote was.

BTW, I love your Doctor Who signature. Big fan of the Doctor here.

Fed: Now have some armor, ship gear, and personal weapons that we've adapted from Borg technology!
Rom: .......
Well, we're adapting it.

Maybe the Tal Shiar are just plugging unadapted, live Borg tech into their ships.

Yeah playing when LoR comes out tommorrow is looking very very unappealing.

Edit: Its ironic an organization like Starfleet/federation having higher tactical based ships when they are suppossed to be explorers and not conquerors like the KDF is SUPOSSED to be but yet the feds have the stronger ships now and are also getting the leech very disappointing.

In my honest opinion that accolade is insulting.

I don't even KNOW if there were a dozen accolade related bug fixes in the lifetime of STO. Most of the time we have to be lucky and they work fine when added to holodeck, or they are bugged and we have to live with it for eternity.

And it's not that there weren't plenty of possible accolades to fix, gamma orionis defender, incursion captain and fleet alert flagship wrappers come to mind immediatly, hell, even most of the siege ships don't even count as the right one in the 'normal' fleet alert accolades.

Neither do I want to know how the pet collecting fraction feels with another 18 pets chewing on their premium storage space.

So basically they expect everyone will play romulan? Since there is like zero non romulan gear?

Wouldn't mind a costume either but it's all romulan over the next period of time eh...

even though the narada is from the prime universe, and all its weapons too, isnt that ship and its torps a LITTLE to close to crossing the line on what the trek license gives you guys access too? this is a half step away from putting the JJprize in game...

Resistance is futile. Your ears will be assimilated.
