Why do the Feds as well as the Kdf have to be allied with the Romulans.The Federation would never trust the romulans or have we become so niave to know better?

The Kdf were once allied to the romulans and know very well how dishonourable they can be.Why would they trust them a second time?

I doubt eithe race would trust the romulans no matter what they have been through it was there own fault.

The Federation didn't do much for the Klingons after Praxis except agree to a peace treaty which is now broken by them.

These two Empires are allying themselves with Romulans because they're currently engaged in multi-front wars with eachother and with multiple external threats.

The Cryptic has made the Romulan "faction" into good guy rebels fighting the rest of the Star Empire. Players won't be the villains from the shows. Basically they are peace-loving Vulcan wanna-bes, not the Romulans I am a fan of.

Fairly simple
The Federation needs the manpower

They are losing the Borg war
90% of starfleet ships are partly assimilated and many have borg crew
A vast number of Starfleet officers ARE Borg

An infusion of skilled warriors , high quality ships and new tech is vitally needed

after all most of Omega force is Borg now

Well, the new home world is covered by embassies, bunny-pig farms, and packs of marauding Tal-shiar. So the devs need time to spin a whopper of a yarn to make it believable that the Romulan military would side with either side, because one world destroyed in an empire of worlds caused a total collapse within.

That one world was the Homeworld of the entire Empire. It would be the equivalent of Washington DC to Maine getting wiped out in the United States.

We are talking massive amounts of resources, manpower, leadership, space ground and intel assets....

It was kind of an important world.

I know a certain Dark Elf from a certain fantasy setting who would fit right in with Cryptics Romulans, I bet his ship would even be a scimitar.

Yeah, and the U.S. Navy saying, they would join up with China, and the army moves to Canada, because defending our weakened Nation would be Stupid.
