If we are actually joining a Romulan faction, then it will likely be D'Tan's New Romulus (currently defined in the story as "good guys" and friends to Fed/Klingon), rather than Sela's Imperial Remnant or the Tal Shiar. I do hope that we will be able to have both Romulan and Reman playable races right out of the gate if so.

And my Legions will march beneath the Raptor's wings as I give my speech, Urbi et Orbi et Cosmi, and claim the position of Emperor in Sela's absence. Under my leadership, we shall crush the Klingons, make peace with Federation, and, as a follower of D'Tan and Spock's teachings, reunify with our Vulcan cousins. We will rebuild into the ultimate empire, one whose legacy will last indefinitely.

Boldly going where no one has gone before!

We will make peace with the Vulcan through superior firepower!

Definitely convincing it pointing to a playable Romulan Faction.

And funny that Romulan is just a really funky English script, "Beneath the Raptor's Wing".
NO to ARC!

Agreed. The way it's being teased, there are many people who think it could mean a Romulan faction. If that is not the case, it will be terrible.

If it's a Romulan "faction" that is played only 1-20 on their own, then they split off to join Fed or KDF, that will also be terrible.

If it's a Romulan faction that starts at 21 like the KDF, but you can only access it after playing a KDF character to 50 (or another level) that would be pretty cool.

I wouldn't have thought they'd do that.

It all depends on the next big release; they'll either have completed the KDF faction (having you start at level 1 from a first character perspective (in that you wont need to play through a FED character first), or they'll release the Romulan Faction as per the KDF requirements; you need to reach a certain FED level before unlock.

If the former, then there's a chance the Romulan Faction will be released in a whole lot of glory, complete with levels 1 through 50. I'd like to also say to everyone who ever stated there wouldn't be a 3rd faction. You were WRONG!

This teaser has Romulan Faction written all over it. It would be a seriously stupid move by Cryptic to produce something like this, knowing the gossip and speculation it'll receive, only for them to misguide us. If they think they've got unhappy players / fans now, they'll have a lot worse if it's all fake.

As for it's actual state, I'd be content with it being level 20 - 50 for the moment. At least it would be there. Something for them to later work on. Go Greens!!!
