I'd like to take the Federation president's words about "the politics of blame" and send them to several politicians (in every party) in our real world. Of course, being politicians, they would never understand.
I'm definitley seeing the beginnings of a Romulan civil war brewing, possibly the following year or this year. Also I don't think the Vulcans are going to be removed from the federation, Cryptic wouldn't do that...or would they? Either way the story so far is fantastic, can't wait to see what happens in the next 20 years. Either thier will be a reemergence of the Borg during this time and every one panics, or it leads to a war were the three romulan "Empires", I say that in quotes because they all claim the same thing, choose either the Federation or the Klingons to fight along side with and that cripples both sides, leading to the game.
Could this be the beginnings of Vulcan leaving the Federation which will lead to the opening of the new animated star trek set shortly after the years of STO!??
Plus i cant wait to hear what scientific exsplantion they give to Red Matter, this aught to be good!.. but despite my sarcasm i had insperation the other night of what it could be so ya never know!
