Romulan Rep unlock missions order (continuity order for new players with AoY)

I know it's been asked for previously, but since we've got the new TOS faction coming and it looks like story wise we'll be dropping in to 2409/10 before all the Iconian war stuff happens, can we please get the Romulan Reputation unlock missions (the ones that unlock at rep tiers 1 to 4 and the T5 cut scene) decoupled from the rep and moved into the main story prior to sphere of influence please?

Presumably the dev's are going to be targetting new players with the expanison, so the whole Iconian Gate on New Romulus thing is going to come out of the blue since you can't find it until you complete Rep tier 5 (which since it takes 40 days or rep missions for a new account) is likely going to be well after new players have completed sphere of influence. The way these missions unlocked made sense back when New Romulus was the end point of the story, but now things have moved on it feels like it leaves a gap in the story.

Adding the rep missions to the end of the "Lending a Hand" introductory wrapper on New Romulus could be an easy way to address this and putting "lending a hand" or a mission that say's go to New Romulus into the story arc before Sphere of Influence would then give new players direction to go see New Romulus before they do Sphere of Influence.

    Yeah, i've been on board with this idea for quite sometime now. The Romulan Rep is cool as it stands on its own, but having the missions open to all helps Sphere of Influence make a fuckton more sense. Their current set up disrupts the narrative.
