Love the throw back to the TNG, hope we get to see D'Tan in the game teaching the Vulcan language to young Romulans.

Actually... it is "at least three groups" in the dev blog.

Could be "one Fed, one Klingon, one independent".

All in all, I totally like such news pieces. Nicely written, Brandon!

However, given what we have seen happening in this year of 2409 (among other things, going through a career from Ensign to Vice Admiral between January and October, it seems), maybe one should think about placing all the events in the STO story on some calendar...

fall of their government by nero, explosion of romulus, 50 years of civil strife.
I am suprised it didn't fall faster.

The romulan faction will make nice pets for the klingons.

Shame there won't be an update to the D'deridex-class Romulan Warbird model with this.

I for one, welcome the death of the Romulan Star Empire, and can only hope the ridge heads aren't far behind.

Not going to lie...this blog post upsets me. More and more its looking like romulans are going to be a playable race in both of the current factions and not their own. Its very sad that Cryptic is going this route.
that could be, but they could also be setting up to do both. if you didn't notice, it said they were splitting off into three groups. presumably that implies a pro-KDF, pro-fed and pro-independent romulan faction (at some point)

If Romulans do get added as a mini-faction then blame the majority of the STO playerbase for spamming Cryptic about it for 2 years without thinking it would be a terrible idea and a waste of time.
exactly. we will see just how serious they were when they said they didn't care if there was a handful of missions, as long as they got to play them

The people on the forums make up a very small minority of the playerbase.
no they don't. thats an offensive statement thats been repeatedly used to belittle people and make excuses

If the Romulans are added as playable, you guys should be lucky you're getting to play them at all

Sure it'd be nice to have a proper faction, but we all know they don't have the time or resources to make it happen; they have their hands full already

I for one though, welcome more content in this game, no matter the form (and yes that includes grind, as I don't hate or love it)
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.
