In other news apparently the Romulans are going to become a playable faction. The KDF is barely a faction as is and they're going to put in another one. I've very, very underwhelmed. If they really wanted playable romulans make then a 500 zen option like playable trill and caitans and then put out a romulan lockbox with D'Ds and Mog's in it.
Supposedly they are also bringing the KE up to the standards of the Feds, with several new ship variations (for customization), levels 1-19 and associated missions, along with more KE specific fleet actions. This is slated for "sometime 2013" so that could be soon or could be later.
If this game went from 1 decent group to 3 in one year, that would be nice.
