If he is not wrong then he should answer the question.
If he refuses to answer, then I can only assume he's wrong and he knows it.

Using another factions starbases for equipment is 1 thing, but flying another factions ships is another. Shouldn't need to join another faction and divide a faction in half making your faction non existent.

If you don't care why do you keep posting, go be happy in the game.

Leave it to Nu Kirk, and Nu Spock, to be the voice of reason.

Im very surprised we do not have the Federation and Klingon fleets complaining like mad about being forced to accept Romulans

All I want to know is, if my Romulan can fly my Odyssey, can my KDF fly it too?
After all, I paid for it and it's "only a game" mirite guiz?

I dont know that it doesnt exist. Look at Beta quadrant on your map, the size of the empire is freakin huge.

Even with Sela's absence, the empire could continue running on autopilot for a very long time. It took a looong time for the Roman Empire to collapse after the fall of Rome proper, why would the Romulan Empire suddenly go poof? There are billions of Romulans with a vested interest in seeing it continue to operate.

This would be an excellent point, if it were true that you and/or people like you were all that were keeping the game afloat, or if you were sufficient to drive the development of the game. Since you're not, I think this thread would do much better without the extravagant claims about the self-importance of certain posters.

You don't like the decision Cryptic made. Got it. No amount of complaining from you is going to change it, and frankly I think you're just flat wrong anyway - this seems like the best decision to me - Romulan characters get to have access to high-level fleet equipment without grinding out their own starbases from scratch, Romulan players get to run STFs and PVP with their friends, and still get their own play experience, ships, and story line.

And the cost is merely that you don't like that one of the most devious species in Trek might possibly have arranged to play a "middle" position between the Klingons and Feds, allowing them to benefit from relationships with both powers without getting pulled entirely into a war they can ill afford. Oh, and if the cost to the Romulans is that sometimes captains from their fractious and dispossessed military end up on opposite sides of a conflict, well, I don't think it's too much "Realpolitik" to imagine them considering that cost well worth it.

Go look back over your last post aimed at me... You didn't ask a me question... you tried to make a point of some sort.

Now, I really must go to bed... It's almost 2am (therefore, not copping out and no need to do so). Nite folks!

You might want to try and read the whole post, rather than only the part you just quoted, before you reply.
