While I enjoyed this Update I'm kinda getting tired of trudgeing through 5 or 6 pragraphs about a race that won't even be the focus of the game at launch. I am interested in what is becoming of the ROmulans but come on. You are putting more detail into them than the federation and klingons combined.
At launch, I believe that the Romulans will be one of the major sources for content. They will most likely be the PvE Antagonist to both Fed and Klingo Players.
So it appears that Cryptic is setting the stage with many avenues of Romulan based content (mulitple Romulan Factions/Groups, various plot lines, etc).
