I know it's a Romulan faction. However they could start them off at the same time that Fed and KDF folks start off, that would mean events happening for them and leading up to the Romulan FE missions.
If it isn't I probably won't be making a serious return to the game. I need a reason to begin a fresh character, preferably with a sleek green UI and sleek green ships. The Feds and Klingons are so stale for me right now, been playing since launch...bored bored bored.
