It seems to be time for the faction walls to drop with fleets/armadas. Based on the story, all of our factions are currently allies. The Jem'Hadar and Romulan factions have full access to their ally's ships. There really is no reason for player created fleets & armadas to be divided. It actually hurts the game because players are being restricted, which is shocking considering how flexible this game is. After 8 years it might be time to revisit fleets and drop those faction walls.
