Just thought I'd stop in to discuss the potential for future playable species within the Romulan Republic
faction coming to us, May 21st 2013. Most of us would already know that we'll be able to play as Remans
and Romulans, but what else? It looks like a rather short list for a fully fledged faction. So feel free to give me
your ideas and reasons for potential playable species we'll see in the coming days of release or afterwards.
I'll list the most viable ones below as them come in, so we can get some measure of order going on here.
What other species are affiliated with the romulan star empire in traditional Star Trek lore?
I was thinking about checking their subject worlds to see if any species other than romulans
live there, I mean, surely such subjects would rise up in conjuction to build a new republic?
Would be helpful for others to participate in this research, no? help explore possibilities? hm?
You are playing as a member of the Romulan REPUBLIC not EMPIRE so there is no other races but Romulans and Remans involved.
We do not know that, nor is that confirmed. We do know that the Romulan Star Empire consists of many subject species that are not reman nor romulan, as depicted in original Star Trek lore.
The subject is to discuss the possibility of these (or other) new species being included or aligned with the romulan republic (excuse the slight of hand in the original post, I actually meant to put 'romulan republic' instead of 'romulan empire').
These would be hypothetically be playable within the under populated (as of right now in playable species selection) romulan republic.

The ferasans are technically augmented caitians, are they not? why not an offshoot of this genetic experimentation? a prototype, as it were? or does that seem too strange?
I.. don't really know if the Hirogen will be eligible, which is kind of sad on a personal note. They have an agreement with the Tal Shiar and Sela and have demonstrated open aggression towards the New Romulus colony. It hasn't really been disclosed where this player faction fits in the Romulan power struggle yet.
