I agree on both terms. Mostly likely Iconian Featured Episodes, IF there is a Romulan playble faction it would probably be released after the episodes are completed.

And yes KDF will once more get the raw end of the deal.

I disagree I think it will bode well for the KDF but time will only tell, and I highly doubt we are getting a Romulan Faction yet, may is just the start of the stories for what is to make the Romulan faction

  • For those who march under the raptor's wing (original slogan)
  • Our shadow will dim the stars (new slogan)
  • Picture of Romulan ships invading (new promo picture, mouse-over)

I'm thinking we will be getting STF-like content themed to new romulus and tal-shiar friction. Maybe we get to pick a side and play some sort of mini-factions. But a fully fleshed Romulan faction? Don't think so. It was said that it will show the way additional factions will be added to the game, like cardassian, etc. If we were getting a full faction, how would it be different from Feds and KDF?

I rather hope for some content themed to Romulus and be surprised of faction content, but I won't hold my breath

it couldn't be a full faction like the federation, that would start a war. maybe the march date is when the faction hits, but in very limited form. then may will be a major content update to both romulan and klingon.

It would explain how a race that is now and endangered species would be able to make such qotes has " Our Shadows will block out the stars"
that would be super cool. i'd love to go to the romulan capitol undercover, to investigate nero, and eventually stop him, thus restoring the timeline and erasing jar jar abrams from history.

...or something Iconian.
thats an interesting thought. it just made me realize that being able to play as a super over powered killing machine against groups would actually solve the problem of getting super op ships in game. we could totally fly a scimitar or even a cube, and fight players as long as its not 1 on 1. when we fight a cube in an stf, it's 5v1, so maybe we could have new pvp stf's where it's like 3 cubes vs 10 normal ships.

Super complicated.

It's more likely to be a $30.00 Romulan escort with 8 fore slots.

Something interesting to consider:

If it is more than just an announcement - say, an announcement a a 5 part (one episode per week) Romulan/Iconian based FE series - If said series started on Saturday, March 23, 2013; the final episode would roll out on Saturday, April 20th, 2013.

Now, you might think that's too early still as the next update is due in May; BUT, it would leave Saturday, April 27, 2013 as a Tribble Test Weekend for the May update - which could then launch as early as Thursday, May 2, 2013.

(All that said: Yeah, it's probably just the first release of 'official' info regarding the May Update, and if anything; we'll see the May update rolled out closer to the end on May 2013. )
