Call me selfish but I only want to play Federation. I'd prefer they make new content for the existing factions than expand to create content for six or seven.

In STO's F2P matrix, the Silver players have 1 Fed slot and 1 Klingon slot. Where would you put any other faction character? Buy a dedicated slot for the 3rd, etc, factions?

I've given up hope that playable Romulans will ever be introduced to STO. I have no faith in PWI / Cryptic bringing any other independently playable faction into STO.

For this lifer, with this loss of faith and hope, I've also lost interest in continuing to support STO or Cryptic.

Actually, didn't they more or less say they were going to add the Romulans eventually?

I just hope it's a Romulan, Cardassian, Hirogen, Reman faction because that way we don't ever need another.

Though I fully expect fans to go, "We want a Borg Faction!'

Not gonna happen. Cryptic can claim Romulans are gonna be in the game all they want but their repuatation is at such a poor point that I wouldnt even believe Romulans were going to be in the game if it was on Tribble.

Borg Faction ? - We already have it with the Borg Boffs, Seven Of Nine, Borg Sets and Liberated Borg

The only thing really missing is being able to fly Borg ships... I'm sure Cryptic can be convinced to put that in the C-Store for $4000 C-Points.

I'd pay 4k c-points for a tac-cube. Kind of kidding... kind of serious. A borg faction would be cool, after they flesh out KDF, RSE and Cardassian Union. Screw the content, they could just have assimilation grind missions and give skill points for pvp...

...but back on topic I personally feel that they should start working on RSE now or soon. I don't care about KDF content not being complete (and they're my favorite faction). Honestly. How many books or episodes were written or filmed purely from the standpoint of Klingons? Give me a percentage. Sure, there should be some fluff, but just to re-iterate, this is a game based off of a universe that revolves around The United Federation of Planets. Believe me when I say I'd like nothing else but to play the game entirely from the viewpoint of a Klingon empire soldier, but to demand it, or even expect it, is just odd to me. To suggest there should be as much content, in another faction, as the Federation is unreasonable, and unrealistic, and [giving in to] that demand is probably what led to them ignoring pvp, which is what new factions should be based around, for the most part.

Want storyline? Play federation. Want to mill around and be the other side killing Fed? Play Klingon or Romulan or even Cardassian Union. Hell throw Borg in there. Make the entire neutral zone open pvp. That's canon, anyway. There's multiple examples of ships being fired upon, without warning, due to treaty violation on entering the wrong space.

I'm not saying Fed's should be allowed to romp around into KDF space (or vice-versa) and that be an invitation to fire on, or have a fleet-led invasion of, anyone's territory (that's an invitation for griefing, after all) but certainly there should be some open pvp raiding events.

Just my humble opinion. I'd be surprised if it hadn't been brought up before.

Nothing new.
But I'd like to point out that percentage is not really relevant otherwise there would not have been several other computer games that gave factions besides the Federation as much room as the Feds themselves, not to mention two games that revolve entirely around the Klingons.
Based on your logic those games should not exist at all.
Arguing about how much should be in a computer game based on what was shown on TV, which operates under a totally diferent set of rules since it has a completely different target audience is rather out of place.

What i would like to see is before they add new race's to the game they sould finnish parts of the game that is not done.Like a real pvp system that has meaning and risk and reward to it.After that is done then bring in a new race would would feel right.

I will never obey or accept Hirogen anyone playing a Hirogen will be auto ignored. As to the Remans, yeah but that cat's WAY out of the bag and at least it is kinda cannon.

Yeah I suppose that's a pretty good point. I didn't take into account the different target audience, and just assumed a star trek fan was the same across the board.
