Is there anything a rom/reman can't do that my fed character can do?

I'm not aware of any particular disadvantages of using a Romulan-faction species over sticking with Federation or KDF. In fact, the Romulans have a big advantage in their de-cloak alphastrike damage, and their battlecloaks are a little better than the BoP battlecloaks.

The big 'disadvantage' of playing Romulan has to do with their ships. They don't work like Federation and KDF ships. . .less power, singularity abilities that require charging, more reliance on battlecloaking, etc.

no, battle cloak, op ships, op consoles, op visuals, op green neon's tunning style, op scimitar that laughs to the odissey, the rest is not up, its just fancy, op fancy drone pets, op fancy singularity skills that if well used they are op, there are no drawbacks on romulans... and they dont have me still!

There aren't any decent Sci ships, but there are some awesome Escorts.

Feds still claim the two best Sci ships (Vesta and Wells) without any real competition from the Romulans.
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

Biggest downside IMO is that the free T5 ships are pretty bad, compared to whats available with the Fed/KDF factions. If you are willing to buy c-store retrofits or fleet upgrades, you can get a couple of decent ships that way. If you dont want to spend cash on ships, go with one or the other factions.

But ... that is the only big downside. Rest of it is all upside.

5 sci console battle cloaker doesn't count as a decent sci ship?

It has everything sci ships are supposed to have, lots of sci consoles, Cmdr and Lt Cmdr Sci, 1.43 shield mod, SA and SST. It doesn't get universals like Wells or Vesta or their consoles, but it already has good boff layout and has access to other Romulan cheese consoles Wells and Vesta can't use, and singularity powers synergize pretty good with sci abilities.

Fly T5 Fed/KDF ships. However, since Rom ships pwn most of them, this isn't an issue. Heck, I'm finding myself vastly preferring my Mogai to my temporal destroyers and I LOVED my temporal destroyers.
