This initial Dev Blog was created to provide some of the background story of Legacy of Romulus. We have a ton of Dev blogs planned that will cover mechanics and reveal more information, starting tomorrow with an interview-style blog. It's going to be a great couple months and an incredible summer and 2013 for STO.
Why do so many Romulans have to be dead? The Super nova didn't originate that far from Romulus did it?
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.
Since we know you end up in a RRW ship, we can assume that the opening scenes after character creation somehow throw you into the arms of the Republic. (As in the Tal Shiar waste your family farm.)

Personally. as a Romulan, I like how you begin your "career" as nothing but a common man (or woman). I also am intrigued by the Sela-Hakeev connection. It seems that she was working with him all along while not "publicly" working with him on his projects. That is so like a Romulan, though, at least in my opinion.
