The new ships are definitely a big hint. My fabulous shoulder pads are going to make all the orion girls drool.
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.
My opinion would be, the end of countdown marks the start of the new season of episodes. At the end of those events things in the galaxy may have changed a bit to see a larger update of the game in May.
What the Sela / Iconian story arc may or may not bring is rather not important except of course that its exciting and I look very much forward to it.
A romulan faction is the only reason I still remain in this game. I just hope it will happen and sooner the better. The argument that the KDF is not fully fledged holds no value. Fans of the Klingons can have Klingon Chars, fly Klingon ships and at least enjoy the feeling of playing Klingons in the Star Trek universe.
Romulan fans as well as Cardassian fans are not having that small luxury. For myself I wont play Klingons no matter of how "developed" that faction is... because i WANT to play a romulan. Even if it is only a small part of the content. I want the feeling... the Klingons sstarted smaller than they are today... and look what was made of it.
In May there will probably not be a new faction, but until then the foundation may be created upon which it can work in the future. Hopefully thats whats going to happen. Versa Dera!
Has anyone else noticed they screwed up to month on the timer? Should be MARCH, not May. It scares me that if they can make such an obvious mistake on the launcher... What kind of horrible "Glitches" will be there when the content is released.
