i finally figured it out and you "may" quote me on it
in march there will be new romulan content (missions, etc), driving the iconian storyline further
+ lockbox romulan ships, later in march.
in may there will be a general huge update, with new reputation options, character creation overhaul and a general gameplay improvement.
this improvement will change the gameplay mechanic.
There will be NO romulan lockboxes - it has been made clear that people want a playable faction , once they finishing the klingon content (which i dont even know why? , whats the problem with starting at lv20, the game is all about end game content - and they have raptors wtf..still always crying about content)
May/march etc - there will be a story line - I agree on this , however not playable faction.
I agree it will be a huge update with rep options etc
I, for one, am hoping that this is something that involves the Iconians assisting the Romulans!
I, personally, would love to see a story that involves the Iconian-backed Romulans, led by Sela, reappear. Perhaps they use a previously hidden gateway. Battle group Omega moves to intercept them but is defeated, cementing the threat that the new alliance poses (and giving Starfleet and the Klingons at least a parital reason to join forces).
The Romulan-Iconian alliance subsequently makes it clear that they're heading for New Romulus, and a joint fleet of Klingon-Starfleet ships is sent to head them off, 'Sacrifice of Angels' style......
But I acknowledge that this is little more than my own, personal, 'wish list' if you will and I fully realise that it's extremely unlikely.

It is easy.
The iconians are behind everything, we know this.
We know sela has been taken by the iconians. They backed her before.
And we know that the voice acting for Sela si shedluded for march.
Sela is coming back with more iconian backing and trying to reestablish the ISE anew.
No Romulan faction to play. Maybe a cooperation of feds and kdf to combat the new threat. But that is it.
The Tal Shiar serves the Iconians, but Sela did not. At least, Obisek didn't think so:
"This campaign of terror is the Tal Shiar's doing, not the empress's. Still, Sela does nothing to stop it.
There is little love between the empress and the Tal Shiar. Did you know that, many years ago, she was exiled from Romulus for attempting to assassinate the head of their order?
The Tal Shiar have their own masters. And Sela despises what she cannot control."
