I did think the glow at the left edge of the mouse over graphic "could" be an Iconian Gateway or some type of "rift"?

Regardless of what it is, I did like seeing several types of Romulan ships represented.

I would be satisfied with a limited KDF-esque faction. Lockbox ships are off the table per Dev's comments in the past; with regard to Romulans. I love playing my KDF guy, still. He is neck and neck with my Fed as "main" and was played primarily until I got my Temporal Fed goodies.

I only think of "faction" or "playable" due to the sheer amount of hype and some dev comments associated with this as "bigger than a season".

EDIT: I will say I did not like the FedEx type questing on New Romulus and sharing of spawns and so forth. Was far to much like WoW or other Fantasy MMOs. This is Star Trek. I am here for white-knuckle Space Combat...and to a lesser extend some ground assaults. The Bajor method was tolerable. The New Romulus was too, too wow-esque. If you want that...probably should go play wow. I grudgingly did the quests to get the transporter pad locations so I could easily get to the instances I needed to do the Romulan Rep cap off quests and associated rewards. I did enjoy the rep system and its abilities.

TLDR; I love Romulans (despite my icon...love Cardassians too) regardless of how much Romulan we get.

I didn't think of this, but I am expanding on it..

Credit where its due.. user "nierion" on these forums..even if he didn't go for it..

Someone mentioned further development of new romular and ambassy rep.

Compare: Omega rep. Gained from Borg STF's, and Defera invasion.

Romulas/embassy rep. Gained from new romulas missions and special missions in the surrounding space.. What does one have that the other doesnt?

Omega.. Patrol mission in surrounding space.

Romulan... Special Task Force Missions!!!!!

So What if "Under the Raptors Wings" is a Series of STF's to for new romulas / embassy rep?

Hummmmmmm! In ter rest ink!

P.S. and editted in..: This in conjunction with what the KDF faction may have added to it to bring it much closer to up to speed certainly would qualify as more then just a season. There was the idea of Romulan themed STF's on these forums long long ago. It was never stated that it was a "No can do"

For that matter, we could eventually have mirror universe STF's too.
Release 8.5 "STO The Next Generation"

Let the happy old bug stomping commence, along with refinement toward enhancing each factions play experience!

Same here, this sort of ad campaign is something new.

Hmm, anyone else notice an outline similar to the raptor logo behind the green glow?

I would always love new STFs, but it's doubtful (at least it won't be THE main feature, they might slip a new STF or two in there as a side dish). It clashes with their statements so far. The May update will be about story and STFs aren't.

It might be a step towards a faction which would be delivered in a year or two. You know, slowly building assets over time...

Plus, we keep hearing about how May will resolve the faction discussion and how the character creation is being revamped...

Well, when did they actually START working on a Romulan Faction? Maybe it was last year that they started?

All of the Tal Shiar have been replaced by Undine, the Iconians answer to Q, and the half-exploded Narada returns from JJverse.

But STFs ARE about story, it's just the game play mechanics that are made more challenging than your average missions.

For an update to be anywhere near as big as they are claiming they will have to be adding some of each. Which would be a reasonable assumption with a new season anyway.
