Is Timeships your battle for the week? Last week it was how Roms weren't Roms and this week it's how Time and Vet ships won't work unless they're Romulan?
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

There is only one reason why this fraction is being made, to make more money from selling ships etc.

I hope that we get Romulan versions of all the vet rewards as well, but I am not holding my breath on it

Fed: Eng Lib Borg (Five) - I only play one char now, such is the state of the game..

Roms still aren't Roms, what are you talking about?

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

That's funny, because KDF gets all those and a great many people would agree they aren't currently a full faction and haven't been from day 1.

And yet everything about the Romulan faction we know so far indicates they have even less content.

They're close enough now. Truth is Feds aren't "complete" either....
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

"Completeness" isn't the point of an MMO. They're never "Complete". What we want is a full experience. That isn't what we're getting.

I'm going to ignore for the moment that "what we're getting" is not something that should be used at all when talking about content that isn't here right now.

Instead I'm just going to point out that the term "full experience" made me laugh at its semantic impossibility.

As for Romulan Time ships, they will probably get added the next time the developers roll out a Temporal Lockbox promotion, there should be enough demand for them. But if I'm wrong, a lockbox goody though is by no means required.

The 1K ship is a bit trickier. The point of the 1K ship is to encourage lifetime subscriptions. Sure, we can talk about 'encouraging player loyalty' and 'rewarding dedication' all we want, but the second they gave new lifers access to every veteran reward, the lifetime sub became a 300 dollar in-game benefits package with the 1K ship being the cherry on the top.

If the Romulan Faction brings in a significant number of new players, even a bump of 2 or 3 percent, then I could see a 1K ship happening. If not, then I'd say no. But take heart OP, in the Dev Blogs they described the Mogai as a "destroyer-like" ship. My hope if is that a Z-Store version of the Mogai will be available with destroyer stats and a universal LtC slot.

Dude, if it can't be copypasta'd, sadly it ain't happening.
