The VA token reward is lackluster at best, and I say this based on the fact that everyone use to get those untill they took away our old reward and replaced it with the VA token, and then proceeded to just remove it from everyone. Giving me back something you took away from me just to so you can take something else away without actually replacing it is hardly a "reward". The android I dont mind at all since it is alien gen anyhow. However it would be nice if they could get us our own captains yacht.(Yes I know they are considering it).A romulan borg officer would of been nice, and on that same note, what about the holo science officer? Do we just get to use our allys instead of having one of our own factions?

So the alien gen hybrids will all have pointed ears and forehead V ridges? Personally, I don't see why people want to play as an alien on the Romulan side when the story is specific to Romulans and Remans. If you want to play as an alien, there are two other factions in which to do so. I'd imagine these people would be the type to say that the story will break the immersion of their alien characters.

I thought Cryptic was making too much sense with having Romulans/Remans on a R/R story where it's generally considered R/R aren't exactly the most xenofriendly race in Star Trek or giving subscribers some value for their money.

No, no Cryptic you stick to doing the opposite of making sense. As an LTS'er I wonder what's the point in buying the legacy pack when it's becoming apparent that as subbers I get access to a bunch of stuff as it is making what looks like a great deal....not such a great deal.

I'm well aware things can change but when you make so much sense (whether or not people agree) and then do a complete U turn doesn't exactly fill me with much faith.

So in LOR we'll have a Klingon looking alien in a Klingon ship serving the KDF and have absolutely ZERO connection to anything Romulan except for the first 10 levels or so? Wonder how much this will end up another KDF faction where really everything becomes a KDF (or Rom) flavoured FED mission e.g. CE mission where KDF get instructions from a Federation officer.

The Romulan Republic is run a by a reuinificationist rather then a xenophobic Romulan. It's already stated the Republic is sharing resources with their Reman brethren who are also on the run from the RSE/Tal Shiar. The idea that the Republic might be willing to take in a few other aliens who are also willing to help them isn't far-fetched.
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.

My Romulan on Tribble is Level 21, has never flown a Fed ship and never did a Fed mission. Level 10 is where you choose an ally, it's not the end of the Romulan Progression. And your Klingon looking character would be half Romulan.....

I like the set of your jib, thecosmic, and I was thinking the same thing. I suppose if you have the 7of9 Costume Pack, you can use her "implants" on a Female Android, at the very least, right?

A Standard list with the minimum one could have expected.

The Veteran Uniform, Ship Hull and Veteran Ship will be not available at launch and currently just "planned" for development - not even "in" development. I have a feeling we will wait a looong time for those to show up eventually.

But hey, finally a blog about it
