So, can Romulans go further than lvl 21 now?
I see you have opened up STF queues for Romulans, and just wondering how we are meant to level past 21 with no missions other than regrinding the prior missions etc...

Nice set of updates, looking forward to getting back on later

Good to know that Neutral No More is fixed, and I'm excited to try it out so I can progress with my Romulan who sided with the Klingon Empire.

Erm, if the base is 45 and t'lis gives +5 to all systems shouldn't it be 50 wep, 50 shd, 50 eng, 50 aux?


Also what do you mean by singularity power will makes your ship easier to detect? Does this outright counteract the stealth bonus or is it based on charge level (ie. no charge and you can't really be detected, 3 is slightly detectable and at 5 you are fairly detectable?)
