Well yeah, but I just took that to mean that they have no plans to put the Cardassians in the game as a playable faction. Just like the Ferengi, Breen, Dominion, Tholians, and any other species that finds their iconic ships trapped in floating space-cubes.
And all this time I thought that trapping ships in floating space-cubes was some new, wacky borg weapon.

Me personally I am going to play on the Romulan side in addition to playing some on both the Fed and Klingon side. I like variety so for me personally it is better to have more options.
I would like to see what people think and what concerns you have.
While I'm more of a KDF that IRF fan, I have been hoping for a Romulan faction since beta.
My concerns for the Romulans are the same concerns I have with the Klingons really.
Are there be missions enough to get from 1st to level cap without ridiculous amounts of grinding?
Will there be sufficient variety of stuff (i.e. costumes and ships) for the faction? For me specifically that means full TOS outfits for all faction members, but each to their own.

KDF ships don't make them much money, unless the Romulan faction has some kind of major shift, I don't think that will change for Romulans, other then maybe some good intial sales while Romulans are populating and leveling.
There will probably be the basic iconic ships for leveling, and then Some new C-Store Designs, and Fleet versions of all of the above.
I don't see them putting a primary iconic faction ship in a Lockbox.
Slight correction: CRAPPY KDF ships don't make them much money. I.E., useless space whales like the Bortas'qu which only appeal to a small minority of the KDF playerbase.
Make a useful raptor or science-heavy battlecruiser, and KDF fans with Zen will eat them right up.
