Man Fed players with all your entitlement, can't let anything new come out without having to get your grubby hands on it.
I'm just going by the development team's own history. The only way this thing works out is if the Feds get their hands on it. Lie back, think of England, and give the feds the cloaks they need to keep your mini-faction alive!
President Aennik Okeg of the United Federation of Planets (Geko) should be impeached immediately for allowing such a breach of the prime directive occur at the highest echelons of the UFP. It is simply shambolic that the Federation would willingly and openly take sides in an internal Romulan dispute. It essentially declares outright war with the Romulan Star Empire (who will naturally set it's differences with the Tal'Shiar aside temporarily to present a united front).
Canon to the right of them,
canon to the left of them,
volley'd and thunder'd...
storm'd at with Roddenberryisms and flame,
boldly they rode, and well,
into the mouth of hell,
Rode the... Fed cloakers?
