And for large established fleets like {UFP} who have 2 Federation fleets(1 for mains, 1 for alts) and a KDF fleet the House of Kular, all of which have 400+ characters and will have little space for Romulans.

Now we were happy to make a new Romulan Fleet with it's own Division in {UFP} and were happy to build up a brand new Romulan Starbase, why not just give the Romulans a starbase and their own fleet?, it make perfect story sense that the Romulan Republic would be making brand new starbases near New Romulus.
I agree with this

For those asking at what point you have to choose sides, Dan mentioned that you'll only be able to use your aligned faction's Doffs so presumably you'll have to pick sides before you reach Lieutenant 7 (or whatever the equivalent Romulan rank is) when the Doff System unlocks?

Since you won't be able to join a fleet until you've made that choice, I guess they're going to force it on you pretty early.

During Star Trek 3 production, the Romulans were the original draft bad guys. The Bird of prey was Romulan.

They changed their minds and decided Klingons. They even stated behind the scenes the logic for keeping the ship as it was, to be the alliance they had with the Romulans and Klingons at that time.

In "Enterprise Incident" they did not steal those D7's, they stated there was an "exchange of technology" and that the Romulans were "using Klingon designs".

(Not 100% sure if Spock said "exchange" off top of head, but that was the explanation producers had in the production notes then and in Trek 3.)

We can argue all day whether production info is canon, it doesn't matter. If you only acknowledge what you see on screen, you have to ignore 89% of what's happening in STO because there are characters like Captain Calhoun at K-7 who was never on screen, he was from books.

its now Lt. Commander 11 and Romulans will have access to to their own romulan doffs plus w/e faction they side with.

Where's the STAR TREK man?
STAR TREK & Romulans are getting sold down the river on May 21 !

EXCITING TIMES !!!
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???
... you know after another 3 story arc remasters, crafting revamp, skills revamp, PVP upgrade ...
*note : the 2-4 year guesstimate came out of comparing Cryptic's Dev speed and that of a snail . Sadly the snail won .

When did it change? It's listed under your progression (Fed-side) as unlocked at Lt. 7?

Read the quote again:

No mention of Romulans having their own exclusive set of Doffs (that's not how I read it anyway).

No Romulan Timeship or Lib. Borg Romulans at launch? Sadface.

I would love Cardassians implemented like this! They're already tied close with the Federation, so I could get to play for the 'good cause' while receiving orders from Garak!
