I'm wondering if it does become a playable race if there will be a way for us to turn out fake romulan aliens into this playable race because a lot of us who love romulans have already done that and would feel like a wasted toon slot to have a fake one and then one that is actually romulan...

Thats the ball buster right there because if they were going to go that route they should have done it a long time ago and now its just going to complicate how a lot of long time players have built characters up.

I'm sorry, since when does either group trust the Romulans? A romulan in the KDF would get nowhere in the ranks because Klingon leadership typically and utterly hates Romulans.

Federation I see it being possible, but slower then the other races of the Federation...
A - Since when do Romulans trust either group? )
B - You got it about right for the Klingons
C - You underestimate the Federation

I guess I don't follow the theory that the new blog spells out that the Romulans will not be a new faction, but a mini-faction. I suppose the possibility exists, but there's also the possibility that this is just new content with a new story arc. That has been the main complaint that the playerbase has had for well over a year. It makes sense that the next story arc would show the fallout from Sela being taken away by the mysterious alien ship. I understand there's new zones and missions, which makes sense from a content standpoint as well.

Something to keep in mind about the idea of a stand-alone faction versus a mini-faction...The Fed sides does have the ability to have a playable Klingon and the Klingons are their own faction. Cryptic has always said they wouldn't make a Romulan faction until they'd finished out the Klingons. Whether they consider the Klingon's "finished" at this point is only known to Cryptic, but if/when they do make a Romulan faction, you can bet that they will have playable Romulans for the Fed and Klingons as well.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks that bigger and better things could be made with the time and effort it would take for a Romulan Faction in any form or fashion?

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

You are probably not, but I sincerely hope you are a minority.

To be frank, any new storyline in the game is a good storyline at this point. It's been a little stagnant to me. I'm speaking from a "Nothing's changed since TNG" perspective, too. I kinda like my Star Trek universe frozen in a particular point in time, it's familiar there. Heck, I finally warmed up to JJ Abrams' Star Trek THIS YEAR and watched it for the first time. Yeah, I'm that stubborn. Which brings me to why in the world would I be up for a fractured & crumbling RSE. It's not a static universe. Things progress. Species progress, new ones are met--I was pretty taken aback & disgusted at the kitty cat species additions (Caitians and Ferasans) in the ST 'verse, but I grew up & got over it. I think the degradation of the RSE is inevitable. Like a house of cards with one card too many removed, it's going to go bust into a smoking, writhing pile in it's death throes at some point. Nothing is static, nothing is forever. You can only slap duct tape on a broken culture for so long before it doesn't help anymore in reality, the same applies to the Romulans' progression over time as well.
Now, hopefully, the content is an accurate reflection of the Romulan backstabbery & deviousness we all know & love. You can tweak the political structure all you want, but you can't really take away the essence of Romulans. That behavior is all their own. I liken this storyline change as being the same game, but a different level (or, same book, different chapter, et al)

I'm also hoping there's at least a little story room for the Remans in S7. I've acquired a bit of a soft spot for them, and am curious to see/know what's potentially being developed, even if as a sub-plot.
