First, Klingons will not be as popular as Fed, never. There are too many "They are animals" fans. Playing level 1-20 will not help, more ships will not help, more costumes will not help. But some Fed players hate Klingons and love Romulans , they will play Romulan faction so we can destroy both in the future .

Second, MMO with two factions are really really boring. PvP instanced + 2 factions = Dead PvP.

The point is, that they will REVAMP the faction system. There will NOT be equal factions of Fed,Kling,Roms.

Instead it will be one MAIN faction: Fed.

And there will be many MINI factions: Kling,Rom, ... soon later Cardis,Dominion,Ferengi....

They will set up the new system first so that will be easy to add mini factions later. We could even get 1 mini faction per season after May.

It's just like the Starbase system. First they set up the starbase system, then they release holdings one after another.

(PVP will be all mixed, so Fed/Kling/Rom in Team A vs Fed/Kling/Rom in Team B.)

Would have been better if they done that from the beginning but better late than never I suppose when it comes to Cryptic.

They have already completely blurred the line between canon and sense by allowing people to fly ships from the past, different universes and the future. We can fly ships from different races and use equipment torn from the bodies of our enemies.

I'm still leaning towards the idea that factions will get a unique starting sector block worth of missions and then Fed missions reskinned, with the new proviso that all playable factions will be Fed-friendly, making factions a kind of species-plus.

Maybe down the road, they could look at differentiation by giving each faction a unique C-Store unlocked profession in addition to Sci/Tac/Eng.

That would be so awesome, you are blowing my mind right now. If this happens lets hope some factions come out stronger, like the klingons and romulans.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.

This is what will happen:

You will be able to Buy a new character slot(s) that will open up the Romulan faction.

You will be able to buy from up to 4 different T5+ ships for your newly purchaced Romulan toon.

You will have to be lvl 50 Fed to start the Faction.

The faction will start off with a Featured episode series that you can unlock once you buy the 2 previous things.

They will make a new home on New Romulus with a base/city.

That is all for May. That would be a lot to come out with in such a short time.

Also it could be that a lot of stuff will be 'taken' from Fed (or even Kling) and be declared: NEUTRAL.

So the game will become a big neutral circle in the middle that is for all factions and all future factions. Around the big neutral circle there will be many little faction circles.

Level 1-20 (Faction-content) Fed-centric,
Level 1-20 (Faction-content) Kling-centric
Level 1-20 (Faction-content) Rom-centric
Level 20-50 (Neutral-content) Everybody plays in the big pot

Result is the same: It will be easy to add little level 1-20 mini-faction (content) in future seasons.

Amazes me how people don't think hey can make a big impact in a short space of time. They have loads of devs currently. And they made the game that launched in about a year. They don't need to build the engine etc that's all in place so it is actually possible that may might see an end to the kdf cry babies and the introduction of a 3rd faction. It is far from impossible!!! Give the devs some credit!!

I agree. There's always room to be skeptical, but all the Devs are looking forward to "Not" Season Eight, so I think we should too.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

There once was a dream which was so fragile, that to merely utter the words aloud, would cause it to fade away on the wind....

Donatra will return! Long live the Empress!
