Perhaps not, but with a bit of brain power, it's not hard to deduce.

19 days to something related to the May teaser. But May isn't in 19 days. Obviously they won't release the whole thing early, and assuming the devs couldn't look at a calendar to count to May is, frankly, absurd. Why generate the hype like this, though, if it's just going to be a red herring?

It's pretty clear they're going to tell us something at the end of the countdown. Which incidentally will be in mid-late March, which is right at the start of the timeframe I suspected they'd officially let us know whether or not it's an FE or a faction. They haven't been teasing any other content releases in the meantime between now and May either, which further fits into my prediction that they'd go pretty much all heads down after Feb.'s festivities died down, save for First Contact Day coming up.

All according to plan...

Wait... how exactly is humanitarian and scientific aid to a fledgling ally while simultaneously exploring a Strange New World not Trek-like? Really aside from the grind involved, New Romulus is the most Trek-like content STO has ever seen...

[quote=gornman47;8384801]hmmm.....some of those silhouettes don't look quite like D'deridex class ships...maybe new ships? Some do look like Romulan BoP ships though.

All I can see is some D'deridexs and Warbirds, but nothing that looks like a KDF BoP

Ah! yes it does look a bit like that. Of coarse, if it is a new Faction they would need more than just a D'deridex and a warbird. Also its pretty doughtful that you would get a Scimitar.

You can view background image to see the image - then if you've got a zoom plug-in or just want to save it and zoom, you can get a better (albeit fuzzy) look at the ships there.

Willard the Rat, Reman, F.T'varo - Rave, J.Trill, Kar'Fi - Mysk, Gorn, Varanus

Well, it means people know something will happen when the counter hits 0, but it won't be an actual release of the content/expasion/whatever we're getting.

I'd be stunned if anyone didn't 'get' this.

# 78 Borg Sphere

So with all these new ships that will probably be available, maybe they should give the KDF a Liberated Borg Sphere. Why not, huh. It would be just like in Star trek Voyager!

Looking thru page source, found this:
var targetTimeStamp = 1363874400; // 03/21/2013 - 6am PST
and
Matthijs de Graaf | 02/07/2013

Ideas, anyone?
