That actually sounds exciting. Imagine Capture and Hold...
If the Romulan faction is done and is a resounding success, I'm hoping Cryptic might also implement the idea of a Dominion playable faction. (Dominion players are isolated in the Gamma Quadrant until level 40 or so, then can rejoin the Alpha Quadrant. More territory would be available for high ranking Fed/KDF/Rommie players)
i would not be surprised if a 3rd faction was the death of faction ques. do we really think they would go to the trouble of making all the que types? and if they did, could we even fill them so half of them ever had games pop?
On the serious note, i hope it will give players everything that was lacking on kdf side.

If true, we really need some sort of unified queue system. FvF, FvR, FvK, RvK, RvR, KvK is too much and would seriously split the community.
Faction Queues and STF PUG-like Queues.
FvRvK - first come first serve. If there are only 10 Feds in the queue, it will be a 5v5 FvF. If there are 5 Feds and 5 KDF, it will be a 5v5 FvK. If there are 5 Roms and 5 KDF, it will be a 5v5 KvR. If there are 4 Feds, 4 KDF, 4 Rom...the first two to get to 5 will go while the one that didn't get 5 will have to wait. If the two that got 5 manage to get 5 again before the other, that other will wait again....possibly again...and again. If that other gets 5, then they will face whichever of the other two queues five first. If there were 5 additional available for two, they'd make it a 10v10. Priority given to establishing 5v5's and then filling out 10v10s.
STF PUG-like Queues:
Mixed teams of Feds, KDF, and Roms...
