Only thing I'll agree to complain with is no Borg Romulan.

This is my read as well. I have a feeling its more a safeguard toward having to make Veteran Reward equivalents for every tier. I could see how they might not make ships or special uniforms.

@OP - the answer is simple, team green is not a proper faction; ergo no LB race for it or really any others for that matter.

I'm concerned about the playable races, or lack there of, too. What I got from that ask Cryptic, was, until you complete tier 1 of the rep system (possibly), you will have no choice but to play as a Romulan, and only a Romulan, no Alien/Gen hybrid, just a Romulan. Now I will most definitely be choosing a Romulan, so that doesn't bother me, but what about the folks who would rather play as a Reman or some other race the Romulans could possibly integrate into their ranks?

The variety in races are of concern, but that all pales in comparison to the other questions that were answered, specifically, about the alliances. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I gather that at the end of the upcoming Romulan feature episode series, you have to pick a side to ally with. What if I don't want to side with either one of them? What if I would rather worry about my new homeworld than embroil myself in a war between the Federation and Klingons? The next part, is access to cross faction ships and consoles. Did I read this correctly? If I ally with the Federation, I, as a Romulan, will be able to take one of Starfleet's most advanced ships (the Odysee for example) and go galavanting off through the galaxy, while still at the same time having my own Romulan ships? This is a bad idea for two reasons:

1. They're Romulans. Sure D'Tan is trying to play nice with the Remans and everyone else and build a new Romulus free from Tyranny and all of that, but let's not forget what kind of tactics the Romulans are known for. It's not uncommon for the Romulans to be back stabbers when it suits them. I can see the Federation maybe doing this, because they have a tendency to be a bunch of space hippies sometimes (it's still a big stretch though), but would the Klingons really be so foolish as to give the Romulans access to their most advanced designs?

2. From a game standpoint, is it really a good idea to allow players from another faction have access to one faction or the other's ships and consoles when those two factions can't do the same, and what kind of problems would this cause later on down the road when the Romulans are finally fully realized into their own fully independent faction? Personally, I want the Romulans because they are the Romulans. I want to fly a D'deridex as a Romulan. If I wanted to fly around in a Sovereign or a Negh'var, I would play one of those factions. The only cross faction ship that I can see making any kind of sense for the Romulans to have, is the Klingon D7 cruiser, or some Romulan variant of it, because that is a ship the Romulans actually used in ST lore.

My next question, is PvP. Why couldn't PvP be three factions, or at least a part of it anyway? I can't tell you how fun it would be to see three different factions, all with their own strengths and weaknses fighting it out in a space or ground arena in a three way fight. It doesn't make much sense to have Romulans with the KDF, and Romulans with Starfleet trying to kill each other when the Romulans are struggling to regain their place in the galaxy. I envoke the Chewbacca defense here. It does not make sense.

And here's the specific question about Lifetime rewards:

Q: (robdmc) Will gold and lifetime subscription perks get applied to the new Romulan faction?

Dstahl: We are currently reviewing all of these perks to determine which of them will be available to the Romulan faction at launch. We?ll finalize a list once we get closer to May.
So relax about the Liberated Borg Romulans. I think they're a sure thing. Cryptic just doesn't want to say so until they start making announcements.

I'm guessing the parts will just be unlocked for lifers in the alien-gen system for the Romulan faction. It seems like it would be more effort to exclude the option.
