If this is the case then Fed/KDF characters must have access to Romulan ships/gear.

There is no way that our Fleetbases should be building out Romulan ships and gear for the Romulan only players in the fleet.

That would be an OUTRAGE! To expect that our built up bases produce Romulan ships/gear but existing fleet members don't get access to it unless they roll a romulan?

But Romulan Charaters will have access to Fed ships/Romulan ships/KDF ships?

Tell me this is not the case?

If it is the case - fleets should boycott the production of any Romulan ships/gear!

All members of a fleet should have access to the same gear and equipment. No member of a fleet should have exclusive content that the others do not. This situation must be prevented.

I am hoping Cryptic won't be so stupid as to allow Romulan characters access to Fed/KDF ships and equipment but not the other way around.

This needs some clarification.

Q: (walshicus) How will lockbox ships and consoles work for Romulans?

Dstahl: Romulan Republic captains not only have access to their exclusive faction ships, but will also have access to the ships and consoles of their chosen ally. Lock Box ships will remain available to all faction captains. This includes the possibility that we might release a Romulan themed box that may have specific Romulan ships that are available to all factions.
Fleet leaders have a responsiblity to insure that ALL members(in good standing and appropriate rank) have equal access to ALL ships and gear. There should not be one group(Romulans) in your fleet that have exclusive items that other fleet members don't just because they don't want to roll a Romulan toon. If it becomes Cryptic's policy to give some members of your fleet exclusive access: just say no. I can only see big problems with what I highlighted from Mr Stahl above.

How else is the half faction that is the Romulans suppose to get access to ship consoles so that they can use them in PvP?

Make claiming the c-store ships you own just give you the consoles ?

I also object to the ship thing, no one should fly around in the ships of another faction, and certainly not one-way.
Only Internet users deal in absolutes !

Hell no - I know our fleet won't be accepting any Romulan players and building them ships - if the existing members don't have equal access.

So a Romulan player can come into a fleet - go to your base and have access to buy a Romulan ship - a Fed ship or a KDF ship

But the players that built the base are restricted to only the ships of their existing faction? HELL NO!

Galor Cruiser, Chel Grett Cruiser, Heavy Escort, Dreadnought, Recluse, Orb Weaver, D'Kora

Other faction ships are already (annoyingly) accessible to players not playing as those factions. The idea behind limited that has long since faded. I am extremely hopeful that any Tier 5.5 Romulan ships are via the C-Store only, and the only rewards coming through the Starbase are weapons etc.

Lock-box ships are different.

What I am saying is that if they tag the Romulan to an existing faction and fleet - the fleet ships should be availible to ALL memeber of the fleet regardless if they are Romulan or Fed/KDF

the Idea of allowing romulans to be some special class that will have access to all 3 faction classes of ships would be a slap in the face to the existing factions.

Even C-store ships - if a Romulan can use a Warbird and an Oddy - then a Fed Character should also have access to a Warbird and an Oddy

If this is not the case why would anyone play Fed or KDF - when you could play Romulan and take advantage of everything that was already built?

This would bury the KDF even farther into the ground as no new players are going to roll an real Klingion/KDF toon when they could roll a rommie and get access to KDF ships/bases and Rommie ships.

The KDF will die off due to player attrition over time.

Don't make the mistake of thinking I don't agree with you, I do. I just know who we're dealing with (Cryptic) and they aren't know for making the best of choices.

They can't do that though unless they offer the consoles at a discount since you do not get the ship it goes with. If they offer the discount; everyone who bought a ship just for the console will then feel ripped off.

If they would of held off and waitied till they could give the Romulans starbases, and Cstor exclusives this could of been avoided. But Cryptic never waits for anything when they can release it NOW!

This is going to blow up in their face HUGE if Romulan players get dual access to ships - and existing Fed/KDF players are restricted to Faction specific ships.

Maybe, but people will still play while raging and complaining, and STO will continue on.
