Completely agree, the D'deridex is, IMO, one of the best looking ships in Star Trek. I wouldn't mind taking a Mogai Warbird out for a spin either, the only reason I watch Nemesis anymore is to see them in action.

I remember reading that if they did Romulans (this was several months ago) and they went over well that they might release a future expansion with the Cardassians, or the Dominion, or even the Borg.

I'm seriously disappointed in the community.

Is nobody going mention how this is the last nail for small fleets?
More rep sinks, a whole faction full of new fleets to divert resources to, the loss of players from Fed and KDF to Romulan, yadda yadda...

At least with season 7, they made the new content boring, and the new gear useless in pvp so that the few who stuck around went back to contributing to the fleet after completing the rep. I mean, what else were they going to do?

With this update appearing to add actual content, I fear it spells the end.

Well, I guess there are always those who look for the cloud in every sliver lining.

Actually I was alluding to this, as you can tell from the title of my post. It was meant to be a bit tongue-in-cheek.

If another resource sink is what is required for (what looks to be) fun content, then I'll dump more resources into the sink. My Fed fleet will suffer for sure, but unless the new content is more bunny chasing, I'll be too busy with that to care

I'm excited for the new content and exciting options I can take with the Romulan faction...But I have to agree in that I fear this is going to weaken KDF even more. Content is scarce for the Klingon faction and now with resources diverted to the Romulan content, it just seems like we are never gonna get a new ship pack, costumes or any other kind of "enhancements" for the KDF for a long time. Not to mention the grinding it's gonna take for the smaller fleets to finish anything with the resources split three ways.

While I am excited (believe me!), I'm also dreading the grinding that might be required.

I know that I'm going to have to put resources in but I don't see it as a "sink". I see it as if I want to gain the most enjoyment out of the upcoming new content then I'll have to earn my rewards.

Let the earning begin!!!

Personally I think it's too early to make assumptions. One could just as easily assume that there will be more content, ships and other goodies for the Klingons to fully flesh them out. I think the best thing to do is wait until more info is released. Get the facts from the correct source instead of making up and spreading rumours.

I'm glad we'll be able to play as Romulans, but... "Romulan Republic"? Really? Not the Romulan Star Empire? Why can't we play as the actual faction that already exists? Backstabbing and manipulating and all that? Why are players always forced to be "Good guys"?

I'm not making up any rumors; I was just stating some fears I had for the game. But I think your right and should just wait for more information to come out.

Isn't the Romulan Star Empire gone since the destruction of Romulas? New name for a new Planet kinda thing? You can still be backstabbing and as mischievous as you want.
