I would personally save the Suliban for any potential Romulan faction.
Could Cryptic not acquire that license?
What would be the point? Hydrans are ugly as sin and they breath Methane, the ISC were a bunch of pacifists and would want nothing to do with the Empire, and we already have Ferasan which are based off of Kzinti which are feline based species like the Lyrans.
In all seriousness I would like to see each race as its own faction just not grouped under "KDF". I would like to see Romulans, Ferengi, maybe Cardassian etc. each with their respective ships to choose from. Why can't we roll Borg or play as Borg?
The Federation side is nice the rest of the factions need a lot of work.
Think about it... there are already DOFF assignments to help splinter/rebel groups of Federation folks, and you have to figure there's at least a few humans or small groups who have thrown in with the Empire, particularly during the brief peace between the two.
And hey, if you can have Federation Klingons, it makes just about as much sense to have the reverse.
Uh? No. Go pro or go home - make a full romulan and reman faction.
Have to agree with you there. I hope I never see either of those races in either existing faction. Well I'm not so bothered about the Remans, but it definitely wouldn't feel right for the Romulans to completely disperse into both factions. The Romulans have always been strong and independent, so they lost their homeworld, that doesn't mean all of a sudden they became a minor power. They still have plenty of ships, outposts, starbases, colonies and now they have "New Romulus"...
