It seems that the romulans wont be getting the fleet/t5 ships of the ally they choose according to the newest dev blog.

Overall, I see this as a good thing. It means we will see a cooler mix of ships at endgame, fed and KDF characters will still have relevance and the romulans will feel more like there own deal.

It also makes a bit more sense cannon wise. I have no issue believing that the federation would have too much issue commissioning it's older , more obsolete vessels to the romulan allies.

So, thoughts? Anyone disappointed?

Definitely. People will claim their T1 to T4 ships for the consoles, and fly a Romulan ship at T5. It was a good compromise and I'm glad they made it.

I'd still rather have a completely independent Romulan faction.

Considering there's all of one Romulan T5 ship that doesn't require zen to purchase, I'd much rather have basic T5 ships available for Romulan captains (but not retrofits, refits, fleet, or C-store T5.5). But then again, I'd much rather have a choice of free Romulan T5 ships available.

I can only imagine that KDF captains now have something to feel good about, considering their choice of ships.

I'm fine with this.

I had no intention of using fed/kdf ships on a romulan so it does not affect me.

but i also have no problem with people using fed/kdf ships if they wanted. what other people do is really no concern to me.

the compromise probably does make better sense from a story perspective as you say. in times of war you mass produce ships quickly but that does not always mean you have enough people to fly them. giving weaker, older ships to the romulans who are great in number but lack the hardware makes sense.

to helps the feds/kdf out in a crisis against their enemies, gives the romulans want they need, while saving the newer ones for themselves so they dont become too powerful.

I wasn't gonna fly cross-faction ships anyway. Why would I, I've been waiting for years to climb into a Warbird.

But as far as variety goes, both the other factions started out with only a few ships at each tier and got fleshed out in many different ways over time. Romulans could go the same way.

Are there any Fed ships with a cloaking device below T5? Maybe the lower version of the Galaxy-X?

This kind of makes the Klingons a superior choice for a Romulan when leveling.

I too would much rather have an independent Romulan faction. This "ally" status is looking less and less attractive.

It's either what you get now or nothing.

Take your pick.
