Allegiances are split and all things trace back to the Hobus Supernova, Nero and Spock.

On the subject of the Federation crossing the NZ willy-nilly, I think it's fair to say that the game currently lacks the depth to explain it, and leaves it at plain ignorance of common sense and Star Trek canon. The developers should have made Romulan space inaccessible just as crossing into Fed space as a Klingon is currently prohibited. Then again, I seem to recall seeing Rom ships lurking around in Fed space on a few occasions...

I think the lack of attention to all this allows players to make up their own minds. Myself and many other players I know of write their own Captain's Logs, some of which are incredibly in-depth and full of brilliant anecdotes. So if you let your imagination go, make up your own story about why the Feds can hop around in Rom space seemingly at will.
I believe the open boarder is because of the fractured nature of the empire and the continuing relief efforts. This is also not to mention the continued efforts by the federation to keep the Klingons out of Romulan territory. I think the parts we are missing is really that Romulan/Klingon front. But it would be nice to have a mission where we have to get permission to conduct federation business in Romulan space.

I want to be allies with the Romulans, they seem friendly.

Is Federation at war with just about everybody?

Undine, Hirogen, Borg, Gorn, Nausicaans, Orions, Klingons, Romulans, Remans, Dominion, Cardassians (actually the True Way plot and the large Dominion fleets in AQ don't seem too believable), Vito'D, Starlians, Phaonians ...many X "race of the week"...

I'm seeing this as issue created by Hobus event....completely destabilizing AQ.
...aaand I'm also expecting (not in STO though) that someone will find out that the Hobus event was caused by some temporal messing and will be erased from history / timeline corrected....

Hobus was caused by Praetor Taris, who was under the command of the Iconians for a long time. She first encountered Iconian technology in the second season TNG episode "Contagion." The Iconians have been hard at work trying to destabilize the area for decades, and are responsible for the peace and unity of the Post-Dominion War era transforming into the mess we have today.
