According to what NPCs say, since Sela disappeared and the Brea base was destroyed, the Romulan Empire is in the middle of a civil war, as factions try to seize power. Also, the Empire is already at war against the Remans. Even if/when Sela return, I'm not sure if it will stop.

If there is a Romulan faction, it won't be the Tal Shiar (sound obvious since they are with the arch nemesis of the galaxy, the Iconian, which mean new missions, no common stf...).
If it's Sela's Empire, it's also doubtful, because they wouldn't do STF with the 2 feds and klingons, Sela want Borg tech, but the others will do whatever they can to prevent it. I can't imagine OMEGA reputation for a Sela's Romulan Empire.
The only faction left is New Romulus.

Sorry, think of it like going to Disneyland. There are a lot of cool looking areas you see from the rides, but if you walked over to them, you'd see they're plywoood cutouts and such.

Yes, you can walk there, but there's nothing exciting down there. Perhaps in the future.

So wait, let me get this straight. It's a reputation grind on New Romulus. That involves obtaining large amounts of resources to hand in. And eventually the gates will open! To ...

The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj!


I've done this before. Wow.

The new Romulan homeworld was build on Rator III.
If there is going to be a Romulan faction, it should be stationed there..

Rator III is the Romulan Star Empire's headquarters at this point. The New Romulan Empire, as the wiki puts it, has Mol'Rihan (New Romulus) as its capital planet, which is what people are talking about in this thread.

Don't dash their hopes like that. You need to tell them that it's a totally awesome area that you can visit when you achieve a special (and very secret) accolade. All the cool players hang out there but are sworn to secrecy.

There is no way IMHO they would make Roimulans loyal to the Tal Shiar playable.

Start thinking through things:

Any playable Romulans will get the same Feature Episodes as Feds and KDF. They will also be teamed with Feds and Klingons in STFs. There's no way Cryptic would make that exception.

Seeing as how the Tal Shiar and the old Empire loyalists want the death of all life in the galaxy (heck, including Romulans), that teaming dynamic wouldn't work.

The New Romulus Romulans will be the only ones that will be playable.

I would assume it's just remnants of other development projects being used as filler to add a little bit of atmosphere to the zone.

Key word - was.

In the New Romulus storyline, Rator III broke into infighting among factions after Sela's disappearance. D'Tan, the Remans, and others moved to New Romulus to establish a new capitol and to begin a new Romulan Star Empire.

Yeah, at this point given the reinvention of the Romulans, they will be "friendly" to the Federation and the KDF, while the Tal Shiar would be similar to how the KDF have the Rival Klingons in benig antagonists.

Personally, just hope that the Romulan faction would be different than how they made Federation and KDF. Before Season 7, I was hoping the Romulan faction would be more around spying and infiltration and get away from the Tactical / Engineering / Science careers.
NO to ARC!
