Who wrote that? Right, the Federation. Nothing but a bunch of two-faced poltical propaganda.

Which is why you roll a Gorn for KDF.

Why do you think the head KDF diplomat is Gorn (S'taaas or whatever his name is)? Why are all the KDF science ships Gorn?

Because the Gorn, as unbelievable as this is going to sound, are the smartest guys in the KDF.

Well we just got Shadow vessels in the game so there's no reason why we shouldn't have the Shadows themselves. I'd like to request playable Narn while we're at it.

So...we can assume from this that the Fed simply chose to sit by and do nothing, just as Picard did when Gowron asked for his assistance in "Redemption".

To say Picard did nothing was incorrect. He was following orders from Starfleet Command who takes their orders from the United Federation of Planets, which are clearly against direct involvement in any matters of internal politics. The matter was internal Klingon politics, Gowron realized Duras had many allies and was desperate for aid. Besides Picard discovering that the Romulans were secretly supplying the Duras faction did far more damage then any direct military aid would have done.
Only thing worse than ignorance is the illusion of knowledge.

I should have been more specific. I was referring to the scene in Redemption Pt. 1 where Gowron's Vor'cha is under heavy attack by BoPs, he sends out a distress signal, and the Enterprise turns around and flies away.

I would expect that is exactly how the Federation would react during the story mission where you're attacked by the Tal Shiar and the KDF arrives to assist you.

Well at that time the federation was in peacetime operations and not looking for conflict.

Now the federation is saddled with conflicts at nearly every border and are looking to make more strategic moves rather than take the moral high ground even if it means shooting themselves in the foot.

I chose the Federation. Now we get battlecloak, leech and true battlecruisers.

Also I chose Federation bc of a growing number of Romulans seek reunification with the Vulcans. An obvious reason for the federation.

I do wonder if somewhere down the road all Romulans and Remans cut their alliances and unite to form their own independent faction.

The Roleplay element would lean heavily towards the Federation. From as far back as the Khitomer massacre to the Klingon attacks after the Hobus explosion, the Klingons and Romulans have bitterly distrusted and hated eachother. Then there's the whole reunification thing with Vulcan.

The only (and huge) reason I am choosing the KDF for my first Romulan is for DOFFing. Marauding is just so much more profitable and fun than diplomacy. I like to send my DOFFs ransacking and pillaging everything in sight.
