Then why can't we have a D'deridex in a lockbox? Can someone from Cryptic answer the question, please?

I'll bet you that the battlecruiser will be a lobi-ship.
Other than that, i want a romulan bop too.

Well, because this would be pretty much mean that we will never get a Romulan faction. Cryptic already once stated that they regret handing out the Galor cruiser to the players due to the fact that this killed a possible Cardassian faction. I think they will be more careful from now on with what they'll be putting in lockboxes, so I doubt you guys will ever get Romulan ships for your feds.

I think that's pretty short-sighted of Cryptic to decide that just because we have Galors that a Cardassian faction is impossible. Just because it's a rare ship for us doesn't mean it can't be a main ship for playable Cardassians. Heck, Cryptic would probably have to use Dominion ships (captured and "repurposed") to flesh out the Cardie faction anyway.

I believe that dstahl said the galor was picked while he took time away from being EP, and in hindsight should not have been selected. however i dont recall him ever saying it killed the faction. just not ideal.

but if a cardassian faction comes it will be so many years between the lock box and the faction that it wont be that big of a deal. the romulan faction is next, and at some point we are getting them. who knows when or in what shape but releasing a rommie ship in a lock box, then having one appear for free 6 to 12 months later or so would be a bit crap for the people who spent money buying one.

Actually, I can very well imagine that they might one day drop the notion of "no faction ships in lockboxes, no lockboxed ships for factions". They oculd just have a, say, Cardassian faction with a C-Store Galor, and a Fleet version that equates to the lockbox ship... and when opineing the lockbox ship, they don't get a Galor, but, for example, a bird of prey (in memory of Gul Dukat).

The lockbox system can certainly be made flexible enough to allow for this - we already have requisition packs that produce different ships based on the player's faction.

Because some people still kid themselves, in believing a Romulan Faction might happen one day ... including Dstahl, so it seems ... the Romulan Faction is just 6 months away for 3 years now, just like the complete KDF Faction is just around the corner ...

My guess is, it will happen sooner or later ... simply because they are running out of Lockbox ideas ... the whole stuff started with Jem'Hadar Ships, and now we're already back to "more Jem'Hadar Ships" ... what else would people really care about besides "Romulan Lockboxes" .... Pakled, Talarian Lockbox ... doubt it

Would still prefer Romulan Lockbox over Borg Lockbox, but I'm afraid, both might happen some day ...

I don't believe we will ever see a Romulan faction, considering they are already incapable of providing two fleshed out factions. Still I hope they will never hand out Romulan ships. There is already way too much non-Federation stuff transfered to the blue side. The very notion of battlecloaking feds is cringeworthy and if I would ever see this ingame I would certainly quit. However I'm very sure Cryptic is on my side with this. They could have given the Federation a B'rel Bird of Prey long ago, on basis of the 'Bounty' from Star Trek 4.

I think the Romulan faction will be 10-20 lvl on new romulus, doing some Romulan mission, then you join either SF or KDF and play the faction like nothing happened. Add some ships for the 10 or 20 first lvl, like Mogai, D'deridex,... Maybe continue to add them for higher lvl, if you are Romulan.

I would hate to see Romulan warbird used by everyone, when a Romulan faction/race is available. I'm sure KDF would hate to see Klingon ships used by the feds, and vice versa.

We won't get a battleship before the level cap increase. But we may get the heavy escort and a breen cruiser.
