All I see is another 'dead' race struggling to survive, an imminent civil war when Sela returns with a federation eager to be involved keeping the peace and a Klingon empire willing to use the conflict to strike back at their enemies. I can almost imagine the glorious day when we destroy Earth while the federation is too distracted by the romulans to defend their home.

I've never trusted Romulans and I never will. I can never forgive them for the death of my Son with a disruptor to the back. It seems to me our mission to escort the Romulan Emporer Sela to a peace summit is problematic at best. D'Tan says this could be an historic occasion, and know he believes it true, the petaQ'pu. But how in Gre'Thor or Sto'Vo'Khor can history this through its arrogant hard head! HA-HA-Ha! (Gulpglpglp)
Chingachgook told me, Don't try to understand them; and don't try to make them understand you. For they are a breed apart and make no sense.

Ah, well, that makes sense if it's what he meant. I'm always annoyed about lack of detail of something that is so easy to make and correct when the mistake has been already made.

On the other hand, considering that the KDF in STO is not 'Klingon Only', our involvement in New Romulus makes sense to the Orions, Nausicaans and Letheans for ex. as I'm pretty sure they'd look forward to take advantage of D'Tan's pacifist faction.
Besides, having watched all Star Trek there is, I'm very aware that the Klingons are not simpletons and brutes, but rather intelligent and resorcefull. If D'Tan's tech and Boffs he offers in exchange help me enhance my B'rel's cloak so I can shove several dozens of torpedoes to the ***** Empress, I'll help him out. The enemy of my enemy can be my ally for the time being. My biggest STO wish is to get the opportunity to blow up Sela and if D'Tan helps he can stay and smoke the pipe of peace on New Romulus.

Ah, so I should be looking for you through my targeting systems in the future!
Jokes aside, I have Fed. chars as well, but my main is KDF and that is not likely to change, just as I supose your main would be RSE if and when you get your faction. If there is a RSE faction, I'll have a char there for ocassional play just as I do my Fed., but I'll still play KDF main, that's what I meant.

BTW, how do you mean 'hard and obsolete'??

Romulans. Ah well. I think the House of Duras should negotiate an alliance with Sela. Romulan warbirds are the perfect addition to the fleet. They blend in way better than those non cloaky Orion or Gorn tincans. Plus they can add the science ships the fleet is lacking atm.

New Farmville, err Romulus. I just think D'tan overestimates a Klingon Generals interest in tagging space bunnies and "fighting" mighty space moskitos.

Nah, that's just the usual MO of Cryptic when it comes to 'universal' content. Make it from a Federation perspective, and then throw a thin, measly, unconvincing KDF wrapper on it for the KDF faction.

I would have been done with it anyways if it werent for that fool J'mpok sending me to Mars instead.
ATM I'm actually more interested in crushing the Romulans, we can leave Earth alone for the time being seeing how the Feds. are all about peace and stuff, I don't see them as immediate threat.
Ofcourse if something like this happens:

then I'm game about attacking Earth, western U.S. to be more precise. For that Cryptic would have to pay!

BTW I see what you did there, tancrediiv!

Oh, come on, I've been looking for a way to kill Sela ever since I joined STO. It's my single most hated character in the whole Trek universe.
I know that the Duras are nothing more than treacherous targs and J'mpok being their petaQ pawn, but if they allign the KDF with Sela, this is one warrior that will defect to Starfleet. I'm with anyone that goes after her, hell even the Ferengi if they're up for it!
But really, if Sela becomes ally of the KDF it is game over for me on the red side, I'll wake up my Andorian and go blue. I couldn't bare working or cooperating with Sela.

Dominion missions could involve moral quandaries: pacifying rebellious planetary populations and putting down resistance, or engaging in subterfuge and intrigue and diplomacy to secure new Dominion territories, or missions under orders from Odo and the Great Link to assist the Federation/Klingon Empire.

There's a lot of potential with this game... I really can't stress that point. There is a guaranteed loyal player base with anything branded, in all seriousness, as Star Trek. This game is immersive and has a great foundation. I'm saddened that people like Dan Stahl squander all of it just to continue whoring out STO for as much microtransaction money as possible.
It's one of the many reasons for my take on a Romulan campaign.

For me, New Romulus is just *all wrong*. You have 3 of the major power groups of the quadrant sitting in a pretty planet. These 3 powers have had several major conflicts with each other, 2 of them are longtime blood enemies, yet here they are sitting around a campfire singing cumbaya and roasting marshmallows on New Romulus. It's so pretty and happy over there, the only things missing on that planet is a pretty rainbow with flying pink and purple ponies. And a Unicorn.

I don't want the New Romulan Empire.

I want the Romulan Star Empire.

And it doesn't bother anyone else that the mighty, warlike Klingon Empire and "hoighty-toighty" Federation are reduced to tagging groundhogs for the Romulans?
