Dunno what it is the page source narrows the date to 21/3/2013 6am PST.

I'd love a new playable faction, saying that I'd like anything that is new, although its usually a remake of something old.

Either way not long to wait.

It could be any number of things.

It could be the Romulans as a playable faction. Considering how they have handled the Klingons I am not as excited about this as I wish I would be.

It could be Romulan theme lock boxes. I don't think it will be.

It could be new missions involving the Tal Shiar. I think this is most likely. If so I hope they have some new Romulan related items as mission reward.

What's up with the timer on the launcher? It shows the Romulan wings with "May 2013" and a timer counting down from 19 days and 16 hours.

It's March 1st. It's not 19 days to May. It's not even 19 days to April. Cryptic can't count!!!

It's probably 19 days until some kind of big news gets announced.

A romulan STF series!

Now I had not thought of that ! And in March, not May. Now that's a much much greater possibility for many reasons.

(sorry, I won't be throwing myself on my Bat'leth for you. My main in play these days is a Orion, and female, we don't do the ritual suicide thing. We just send a hit man to remove the person who dared to irritate us by pointing to something ..shame full.., I'm Orion, what is this "Shame" you speak of anyway? *puzzled look*)

I was thinking an FE series, but having it as a STF series would be far more interesting. Kudo's to "nierion" for bringing it up.

If it is a STF series, it would provide additional umf to the New Romulas/embassy rep grind. The Borg have the defara invasion, and thier STF's. Might be a more balanced approch.. but I can see the possibilities and it would be all in all rather strait forward!

There was talk months and months... and months ago about the concept of non Borg STF's.

what an interesting concept.

Let the happy old bug stomping commence, along with refinement toward enhancing each factions play experience!

this is silly. a third faction is the last thing this game needs. it can't even properly support a 2nd.

My gut tells me Romulan Faction. My logical brain tells me Featured Series.

If I had to choose, I'd put my money on a Faction. I don't think it's any more likely than an FE, but experience has taught me that overthinking things increases the likelihood that you wind up with the wrong answer. I gotta go with my gut.
