The new openness on Romulus has made it much easier for the Federation to get news about what is happening on that world, but not all of it is favorable for the long-term stability of the region.
Ambassador Spock reports that the Romulan Mining Guild has finished a multi-year study of Remus and has presented its findings to the Romulan Senate. The guild reports that the planet has been seriously overmined, and recommends that to avoid a Praxis situation that the Reman operations should be shut down and mining operations should be moved to more distant areas of space. The guild spreads their operations across the Empire, settling hundreds of miners and their families on space stations and colonies light years away from Romulus.
On behalf of the Founders, Odo meets with Lamat’Ukan, First of the Jem’Hadar in the Alpha Quadrant. Odo asks the Jem’Hadar to return to the Gamma Quadrant with him, but Lamat’Ukan rejects Odo as a false god. “You wear the shape of our gods, but you do not have their spirit,” Lamat’Ukan is reported to have said. “You are corrupted by your … taste for the life of a solid. To follow you would be to sacrifice our souls. There would be no victory under your banner. Without victory, there is no life.”
Gives me a lot of hope that any Dominion faction won't be "Federationized" by Odo.
First thing I have to say is....Captain Data! Finally he is resurrected. i mean it was obviously leading up to it but I expected it to take a little longer. I really hope us fans can consider the story of this game close to canon after release, because the parallels between Data and Spock just make so much sense.
And saying Remus could be the next Praxis is similar in drawing parallels with the past, all this stuff with the Romulans is vastly more complex but nonetheless like the Klingons in STVI
Really starting to look like Cryptic may be following in the footsteps of the Countdown comic books. If they do in fact go through with the destruction of Romulus... I wonder if the Remans will be a welcoming sort to the Romulans on Crateris.
The whole thing with the Cardassians is also really great. I'm really hoping they become part of the Federation. It's the only way they'll regain some form of identity. They have much to offer the Feds.
