My money is that season 7 is Romulan heavy but does not have them as a playable faction. HOWEVER, the assests used/created in Season 7 will be used in a later season for then they are playable.

Cryptic needs to move the STO story along so a playable faction makes sense. I think that is why season 7 will be "Story heavy".

Red Romulans, or no Romulans. Cryptic can't even support 2 factions, what makes you think you will ever see 3?

The Romulan Colony is from "Mine Enemy". We will be seeing it again I believe...

Why are you telling that? The only problem of the KDF is the lack of story content. The rest is working pretty well, and it's even more developped than the Fed side. More dailies, more work has been done on the homeworld, there are ships ready, etc. Just a few episodes to release. That's all, and you have a complete faction, nothing else is needed. They just don't release ships because it's not as profitable as releasing ships for Starfleet, but I assume they are aware of the fact that if the player is allowed to start at level 1, it would be profitable after several months. I guess they wouldn't make the same mistake two time with a 3rd faction.

I like the lighting.

Is that a preset that's open in the Foundry? I don't recognize it if so. (I would like more lighting schemes or ability to customize them on the ground.)

I'll tell you one thing: I've loved each lighting scheme more than the last. There is a palpable sense here and in C-Store designs (costumes and ships) that you guys are constantly mastering your own tools better and better. I know there's been turnover but I get a real sense that you guys are constantly coming into your own more and more.

I'm a nut for lighting (probably my theatre background). It's probably one thing I agonize over the most in my Foundry missions even with limited options available and the more high quality maps we get in the Foundry, the more I find myself using the maps you give us largely unmodified, with more emphasis placed on scenarios and lighting.

I've built some of what the Foundry community refers to as Ziggurats. One of my prime examples was from "Final Judgment." I have a preview of an old Work in Progress draft here:

But the more great maps you give me, well... I foresee a point very soon when I won't do much of these and can focus more on lighting and (fingers crossed) pathing and cutscenes.

I would be a litte surprised if a Romulan faction came out with S7. But my guess is they're using this as an excuse to slip in more elements a Romulan faction could use when they get around to it.

My guess, we won't see a Romulan faction until S10 or later. S7 adds in more Romulan-centric areas, S8 goes into PvP fixes with some stealth additions to support three-faction PvP, and S9 sees a crafting revamp, all of which sets up the springboard for the Romulan launch.

I'm mostly KDF player but TBH this is how I see the state of the game when ppl talking about content or what needs content. KDF drew me in well over 1.5 years ago now for one being I loved Klingon lore the other is it was so much easier to get emblems and data samples.

The thing with the federation is they don't even have anything like Pi Canis for dilithium or Empire Defenses it seems. If they evened it out where there was decent dilithium for time like Pi Canis does or even putting in dilithium for Fleet Events that would be fine but also an unfolding story so this isn't always 2409.

It can be done its just a matter of getting it all planned it seems the plans never make it out of the barn door from the podcasts i've listened too something that isn't much in the benefit of the player when it comes to story is usually overruled for something like a new c-store ship or lockbox rather than to enriching the game with story.
