Dstahl: Legacy of Romulus definitely opens up the door to adding new factions in the future and ultimately puts STO one step closer to a living Star Trek galaxy.


I saw this and thought, Delta Quadrant, Borg, alcoves, ships, plasma wrist weapons, Borg UI, Cube fleet base, etc...and also spending lots of money on Borg related lock box / c-store items...I'd love Hue as a commander...
Which side will the Dominion/Cardassian players chose federation or klingons? It will be intreasting.

As long as the plan is to slowly add all the Games Systems like DOffs / Fleetbase / PVP etc. over the next Seasons to the Romulan Faction, like they did in the beginning with Klingons, then i am OK with that.

I would just like to hear now that Romulans one day will actually get their own full blown DOff Expansion.

The only question would be how to separate existing chars from their allies again, in particular with DOffing, once you have FED or KDF DOffs those can't be magically get a green border and keep working...

so even if we have to play the FED/KDF DOff Missions and Chains without any Romulan Flavor, i would at least request that ROM faction specific DOffs be added before it is too late.

While I disagree with a lot of what you say this I totally agree with. I feel this move is wrong. I think the community would be happy to have only minimal content for the next 12 months on the Romulan side in exchange for not being forced to fly Fed and KDF ships on Romulan characters.

I understand they are trying to give Romulan players as much content and things to do as the characters on other factions, but I think it be better not to do this even if the Romulans have a bit of a content drought while the KDF are polished up and Romulan content is released in each season.

All joking aside after this how can the romulans ever be a real faction
there is no way to make them into an actual faction now.

Maybe they can splinter off a different rom faction based not on D'Tans space hippies but on the rom star empire led by sela after the hobus made romulas go boom.

Idk just seems cryptic is taking a lazy mans way out of making an actual faction

In that clip I totally misred the FI for an A in final journey.

But I do not want Romulans to use Fed or KDF ships. That would be odd.

People were saying very similar things for the past three years, almost every time something happened.

It's a given that I can't see the future, but based on patterns up until now, I am willing to guess you won't be any more right than the ones who came before you.

Would be nice to have both Dominion and Borg as pure separate entities...

This won't happen. That's what's so annoying about this. Once the Romulans are entwined with the Federation and Klingons, there is no undoing it. Cryptic simply cannot take players from those factions and dump them into a new one later on down the road.

The shortsightedness of Cryptic's plan is probably one of the most aggravating things about it.

The Cardassian government under Natima Lang will join the Federation, ofcourse. The Federation already patrols and protects their space by the peace agreement.

The Jem'Hadar on the other hand, will go KDF. They respect the warlike Klingons.
