Expect it to be a P2P faction. Likely it will cost north of $30 to unlock one romulan toon slot.... the base ship will likely be a terribly speced 100 year old romulan warbird... with everything thats any good being another $20+ off the cstore.
Cryptic can keep there greedy ways.... I have real faith that I will get to play a real romulan faction when some other dev has the licence 10+ years from now. lol
When the messenger comes to appropriate your profits ... kill the messenger.
