One of the perks for being a lifetime sub is a free purple quality android bridge officer. As this would not be a good choice for a Romulan Captain, will there be a special bridge officer specific to a Romulan Capt?

Out of curiosity, why do you feel that an android would not be a good choice for a Romulan?

I always think of androids as being Federation Specific (I.E. Data).

Ah, yeah I can see that. Personally I'll be making mine look like a Romulan.

Yeah, I make mine look human. I don't understand why android BOFs are pictured as alien instead of the gold skinned humanoid we all know and love.

I tried to make mine look like Lal. But I don't feel like Romulans would be beyond trying to built androids. An even better slave race than Remans? Yep....

I don't. Romulans may be elitists, but their elitism just makes them think of others as minions. They're happy to have non-Romulans as minions.

I'd say Romulans would be experimenting with Androids, but probably more like the droids from Star Wars rather than Data.

They're experimenting with Borg-inspired tech left right and centre. A few 'droids wouldn't be out the question either.

After all (SPOILER):
In the new Romulan missions you're essentially borg-ifying a captured Romulan with modified borg tech.

True they are using borg tech to pimp their rides and (SPOILER REDACTED) but whenever I think Android I see Data.
