???

I dunno what to believe, the new JJ film is coming out in May and so this major update too. I wonder if they're connected or not - dismissing the whole contract thing between them, after all, they did with the 1st JJ Trek film to make that work.

Anyways, we'll find out sooner or later! Not long to go now!

I luv the way that pic shows all the different versions of Daleks through the many decades of the Doctor.

I'd be 'welcomly' plotting behind their backs, to overthrow their sorry tin-can asses.

For those of you arguing for the older Romulan Empire model of a Faction...let me point out that they are setting them up to be the servants of the Iconians.

I for one would not want to serve the people trying to take me over.

So I am betting a Romulan Faction will involve New Romulus.

Another point...why can't there be both a new FE and a Romulan Faction in the same update?
Cruisers do not suck at DPS and Escorts are not Tanks. If you think this, you need to reread the definition of Tank.

Thanks, I love it too, the episode was great and awesome, but the image isn't mine. It's created by the BBC for part 1 of series 7.

The screenshot from STO maybe is meant to be seen as an intertextual reference to Doctor Who's poster, or surely it was defiantly inspired by.

When I first saw the poster from STO, it imminently reminded me of DW's.

If you've actually seen the episode which the WHO poster is referencing, you'll know that the poster from DW was slightly misleading.

- SPOILER -

(Highlight to see):

Amy doesn't "fall". But it LOOKS like she did - looks like she died.

- END -

Maybe this upcoming season is going to feature time travel somewhere. They have mentioned similar things in podcast interviews etc about returning actors and actress, especially Denise Crosby.

Anyways, I think we should get back to the subject! This new screenshot!

Although a lot of work, but, what if this update is for both?

But the main advertisement to gain people's attention about Romulus/Romulans.



3 years = 3 factions? XD

I'm starting to wonder now.

A number of players have told me that this isn't an announcement about a new faction, but rather, the level cap raise to Fleet Admiral/Dahar Master.

While that's interesting, to me, it's hardly as fascinating as a new faction.

The last time there was a level cap raise, it was one new sector, 3 missions and a new group event (that was buggy to the point where it was unplayable!).
And that was all.

I hope they do better next time.


However, to me, this looks like classic misdirection.
Given the heavy Romulan theme of the announcements, why would you turn it around and make it about the Iconians?
Even if they are linked due to the Sela abduction/Tal Shiar storyline, Romulans and Iconians are completely seperate matters.

If this was truly about the Iconians, I would have used pictures of gateways and the line about "air and darkness" which is the mythical interpretation of the Iconian's abilities.


As for the KDF, I'm so disinterested in their faction, I have no intention of making another character for them ever!
I have one KDF, that's all I'll ever need.
So, from my point of view, adding more content for KDF below the max rank means nothing, since I'm not going to play it anyway.
