And I haven't even started to talk about the Hirogen... who's controlling them?
8472...

For all of the above .

Throw in a touch of "play both sides when it's advantageous" and "play both sides against eachother" as options and you have a winner. Romulans are nothing if not highly situational with regards to their allegiances, I suppose.

Except they really are just a minor player and another pawn in all of this. They're not evil. They're victims like the rest of us.

Sounds interesting. So, what's your best guess on which side a playable Romulan faction would side with when and if you do make it available? Will each individual player get to choose who to sympathize with and will end up with a different set of contacts/locations based on what they chose? That sounds too time consuming for the team to make. Will the majority decide in a player poll? All very interesting and important questions. I hope the team will have answers for us soon.

Stahl, in my opinion the Romulans should be divided into 3 separate groups:

1) The ones that side with the Federation for survival (a Romulan playable faction in Starfleet)

2) The ones that side with the Klingons for survival (a Romulan playable faction in the KDF)

3) The ones that want to keep being independent and get their former glory back. These are the ones working with the Hirogen and even Remans. This is also the new Romulan playable faction.

I honestly think this covers the entire storyline for STO up to this point and has a good reason for all of it.

If the Romulan Empire collapses into a civil war, then I would not be surprised to see missions where Feds + Roms are fighting against KLG + Roms.

Or maybe even more specific than that...

Maybe it is Remans+Feds vs. Rom+Kdf+Hirogen

you can see - there are a lot of ways we can go with it... nothing is for certain... except that we want to focus back on the conflict between the Federation and KDF and adding a Romulan faction will play into that somehow...

well at least until the Iconians arrive to destroy everyone

So they want you to think. I'm onto them, they think I haven't noticed they replaced my Breen BOff, but I can just tell from how he looks at me, he's not the same.

*ahem* I think it MIGHT mean that they get to do a lot of existing Fed and Klingon content along with their own. So I'm not sure if it IS impossible time consuming.

Get Klingons up to having 40 missions or so and, say, launch Romulans with 25 and a choice of 20 Fed or 20 Klingon and the ability to pick a side in existing PvP. Just my thought on what it might mean.

I can't wait for that. XD

I'm finding the Romulan ideas quite interesting. Can't wait until things are finalized so we can learn more.
