I'm having a great time on New Romulus, and if any of you haven't been yet you should go. It's just like exploring a new world - taking samples, exploring, and all sorts of things that Starfleet does. Cryptic did a really good job.
I have to agree, i wish more of the worlds in STO looked and acted like this and dont. This is my main problem with Cryptic, they bring out great elements that they dont place across the entire game and only place it in certain areas.
As for the New Romulus, i want to know more backstory about the planet and this new government. Seeing that great hall or building is just awesome.
Even though I been disappointed with Season 7, I really am fond of New Romulus. Only complaint is the terrain looks like it was made of potatos (lumpy rocks). Guess Cryptic is using the round version of minecraft.

Tier 1 was fun, Tier 2 really felt like it was an afterthought.
Meh, the end product was a derivative of the original art direction, trying to make it feel like something that could exist, but which you haven't seen before, and the time we had to make the zone. I chose to go with a route that I knew I could easily cover the map in, and still (hopefully) look ok. You're no the first to make the potato comparison, and it's fair. But, it is what it is.
I agree - really nice environment. Some of the nicest looking areas are on the bridges Hopefully we'll see more of these adventure zones in the near future... It's fun to be able to explore in any direction I want, without hitting a zone wall, and to pick up random missions on the way. It gives STO some of that traditional MMO feel, that I'd been craving in this game
Quite satisfied with Season 7 in general - fun new fleet actions and an adventure zone I can come back to, without it feeling all that grindy.
Hopefully some of the bugs get squashed soon, and we'll be set
