Hearing about the Rom ships getting reserved for a faction is highly pleasing.
This escort though . . .
I seem to remember a BOP thread where players asked for 5 forward weapons and got shot down because the game coding couldn't allow it. Maybe i'm thinking of the warp core thread though. But most importantly, why is the andorian ship colored like the Atrox?
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.
Limited time ships, such as those in the lock boxes, are intended to be proportionally rare and difficult to obtain versus Fed and KDF ships which are the default and easiest ships to obtain.
The trouble with that is that a good chunk of the playerbase has at least one lockbox ship by now, even if they're all different ones. So while no one specific lockbox ship outnumbers proper Starfleet/KDF ships, lockbox ships in general are really common.
Anyway, thanks for answering my question.
"With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured ... the first thought forbidden ... the first freedom denied ... chains us all irrevocably."
So the update in May is basically an import of the Neverwinter character creation process into STO and an extension of the romulan reputation system to allow a romulan character to be created on the appropriate faction if you go high enough?
Edit: Oh and a Kumari with 5 or 6 forward facing guns.

Defecting from the Federation to the Romulans from May 21st
Q: (carcharodon1975) ?Beneath the Raptor?s Wings? has set people?s hope high on getting a playable Romulan faction in May. My question is? are we getting a playable Romulan faction in May?
Dstahl: We are not ready to begin discussing the details of what is in our May update, however the reference definitely suggests that it is related to Romulans in some way. We will share more news about the update and give a clearer response to your question as we get closer to May.
