If you can get duty officers at both the Romulan Command and Star Fleet Academy with my Romulan captain, why can't I do the same with my federation captains? Also, I know of the Vulcan,Andorian and Tellerite ones you can get at the fed academy. Are there more out there for free without paying dilithium?

    Short answers;1 because only romulans can go to new romulous command and 2 yes, they are occasionally available in sector space.
    It's not my fault if you feel trolled by my Disco ball... Sorry'boutit.

    Colonial chain completion = free blue doffs
    Colonial repeat assignment = free purple doff on crit
    Asylum assignment = dump the refugees from the colonial repeat into the correct assignment, and more often than not, get a blue doff.

    Still doesn't answer why:

    a) the Federation/KDF Captain can't run Romulan recruitment, while the Romulan can run Fed/KDF

    and

    b) why Fed/KDF duty officers are being rewarded through Romulan duty officer contacts (up- and downgrinder at command can yield Fed/KDf as well as Romulan doffs), while we don't get Romulan doffs through the SFA or KA
    why can't I do the same with my federation captains?

    The real reason is, that the Dev who was in charge of the duty officer system moved on a year and a half ago, and any changes done to the duty officer system since then, which includes any doffing related to Romulan characters and the Tau Dewa system were half-hearted, inconsistent and badly implemented.

    ....

    Did your Fed/KDF character agree to ally to the Romulans, and agree to do battle against other Fed/KDF agents??

    The only reasons why the Romulans can do this, is that their actively trying to play both sides of the Fed/KDF conflict. Both the Feds and the KDF will not tolerate a officer fighting against their own comrades...

    Even Cryptic have admitted, not in so many words perhaps, but read between the lines and you see that Cryptic didn't think the player base was comprehensive enough to support another complete faction, that Romulans are a 'Fraction" not a 'Faction" which is why they need to be aligned with one of the others, and why there are several areas where they lag behind the others ...

    But there are compensations, like being able to use a lot more varied ships and equipment, and ... Recruit DoFF's from more places ...
