# 1 Romulan Faction - Ideas
10-14-2012, 12:29 PM
Cryptic has indicated that they hope to introduce a playable Romulan Star Empire faction in the -future. So, what would you like to see in it?

My ideas:
Playable races: Romulan, Reman, Hirogen

Ranks:
- Uhlan (0-9)
- Centurion (10-19)
- Sublieutenant (20-29)
- Subcommander (30-39)
- Commander (40-49)
- Admiral (50)

Playable ships:
Uhlan: Bird-of-Prey (light escort)
Centurion: Lanora-class (science vessel), Seeker-class (escort)
Sublieutenant: Apnex-class (science vessel), Hunter-class (escort)
Subcommander: Mogai-class (escort), Venatic-class (science vessel)
Commander: D'deridex-class (cruiser), Apex-class (science vessel)
Admiral: Scimitar-class (cruiser/carrier), Huntmaster-class (science vessel)
Small craft: Romulan shuttle, Scorpion Fighter, T'Liss Fighter

Notes:
- Cryptic has said the Romulan faction probably won't have Hirogen, but I figured I'd include them just in case.
- additional ships can be created to fill the roles of dedicated Cruisers, Escorts, and Science Vessels
- ranks can be compressed if Romulan faction isn't full 0-50 levels
- Romulan ships will all have Reman skins

Let's hear some of your own ideas!

It would be great if they could do what they should have done at launch, and that is divorce rank from level. At any rate, the wind is out of my sails on the Romulan faction question; the whole idea of a mini-faction just doesn't sit well with me.

"Essentially confirmed"

What I heard was "we would like to do it", maybe you read something I didn't


I think what everyone is mainly focused on is it only being a new skin with no story aka "sub faction" in oppose to new content.

Me I just want a romulan carrier with cloak so I can send the fighters in and be afk cloaked watching a movie while grinding stf

I never cared about the so-called story since it doesn't have any impact on gameplay; when I play sto I am the story.

I only ask for everything, I want to have a story I can impact and that impacts the game.
If it's just a poor cutscene with some random text.. well I am too old for that

/edit

ps.

But ofc it would need a romulan homeworld and the classic uniforms for starters - it's easy to imagine them making the romulan faction a level 50 unlock so that they don't have to build 5 tiers of ships though : /

Could you provide some links to this confirmed info?
Everything I have read (Dev posts, Stahls Ask Cryptic&Raptr Q&A), listened to, etc, have shown them bouncing around the idea of a playable Romulan in the KDf/Federation.
This is not as good as it used to be...

Yes "we want to do it"


Which is saying we know you would like us to but as of yet no plans. Unless you actually have a link, I'd love to see one if you do

Lol Cryptic has been wanting to do a Romulan faction for years...and at the latest ST convention, we got a confirmation that "we'd like to do do this" i.e. we want to...but we we can't for some time.

Something should be done for those who cared enough to have a 1000+ day sub.

Sorry, I apparently misread something. Changing OP.

the scimitar class seems a bit OP to me since the Feds or the Klingons dont really have a playable dreadnought yet

The NPC versions of the above ships are all dreadnoughts. So the Scimitar could work as an endgame ship.
