Hopefully soon.

Even as a Rihannsu RPer, I would love to see a resurgent Dominion/True Way under the leadership of a certain former DS9 Constable.

I hope I'm wrong but I firmly believe we wont be getting a cardassian/dominion/Breen faction. Too much has been given away for free/lockboxes from all those groups and I think we have gone past the point of no return.

There is an argument to say that the game cant realistically support another faction anyway, no matter who they are, so I can also see them sticking with 3.

If that is the case then I would rather they stick the other items in the lobi store than not get them at all.

I would like The Keldon, The Jem'hadar Battlecruiser, The Hideki fighter, The Cardassian Uniform, The Breen uniform and enough bits added to the character creator to make a reasonable looking jem'hadar. That is basically enough stuff to make its own lockbox/lobi promotion. Remnants of the last war.

Ah yes, but you forget that the Romulans are not a faction, but only a fraction. If this idea was set up with the Fed or KDF principle found in the Romulan f(r)action, in the context of this "New Dominion" of sorts, the mechanics would certainly allow for it, within your claims of what STO can and cannot do. Plus, it would not be surprising if the Federation is still occupying Cardassia, the K.E. however, not sure about that.

No, I'm not forgetting anything. I'm not talking about how large of a faction it is, or game mechanics but as to how much we already have either free or via lockboxes.

We could not create a proper Romulan or reman, we had none of their ships to fly. None of their costumes. A Romulan faction was desirable because we had none of it. We already have so many different aspects of the cardassians or the dominion in game that it waters down the attraction and annoys the people whole spent huge amounts of money trying to get these rare ships already.

I think they have given us way too much via other methods to make it viable so they might as well just continue to give us the factions remaining characters, ships and costumes by the way they have already done so.

A reason they have left Cardie content as only the galor is as they regret releasing that for a start and are holding it for the Cardassian Faction or demi-faction like the Romulan style faction set up. The current situation of Cardassian affairs fits perfect with the demi-faction concept. I just hope Garrak voiced by Andrew Robinson will be involved, if so I would end up only playing as a real Cardie most the time even if its a allied fed or kdf one.

Don't ask them for more Cardassian stuff in Lobi store, I'm pretty sure it's being considered for the Cardassian faction. I think we can agree that is the better option.
They even said they regret issuing the Galor in a lockbox.
Can't wait until we make our debut! I guess with the Cardassian Lockbox and new missions in the general vicinity of cardassian space there has been much more of a "want" from players for a true cardassian faction than they orginally anticipated. The keldon I believe was the most powerful ship in the Cardassian arsenal however non-canon speaking the Hutet Class would have decimated a Keldon.

Tier 5 Galor candidate: http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Damar_class

An escort Candidate complete with a cloak: http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Gul_Vystan_class

plus this: http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Sartan_class

Plenty of ships to choose from or atleast be inspired by.

It seems cloaks on cardie ships were quite common if you read through the classes on Memory-beta.

I like the idea of a re release of the Galor, but all current Galor's should be upgraded to T6 and in the process get turned into Keldons. Since Keldons are nothing more than upgraded Galors anyways.
I use to do 100K DPS, but then I took an arrow to the knee.
