Yeah, I'd really like to play the Romulans too. But I'll be fine for a bit if i can have romulans in my crew.
Suspect us rommies at heart will have to settle for vulcans (aka unified Romulans) in Fed Space, with hopes on returning to the Empire when Cryptic has time to make an Empire expansion or patched/update.
... not so good would be any notion of typical MMORPG "classes" in ship combat - like for instance a "healer" ship class. Please tell be we wont have ships firing "healing beams" to "heal" damaged ships.
Thanks for the addition information, Cryptic dudes and dudettes.
How about a ship upgrade that can allow you to extend your shields around another ship, boosting their "health"? Or a ship with maintenance shuttles that can fly out and repair other ships?
