    Agreed! Are we not supposed to play our Romulan toons anymore?

    Seems that way... and it's too bad. I'll pass on those ships I guess...

    I think ignoring Romulans and Jem'Hadar (Dominion) is not good. I'm looking forward to some Romulan new ships for now. Until then, I guess we can wait.

    Love them both. Really glad to see 2classic ships getting the t6 treatment....good job devs.

    I will get them both....IF....the seat layout and/or the console is good.

    Sounds like Romulan stuff just isn't as profitable to keep churning ships out as often, makes sense.

    I'll definitely be getting this pack as I love the designs of both these ships.

    It means there is hope, reyan! People have already given up hope on ever getting a Tier 6 Vor'Cha, and finally, an eternity later, it's there. So there is still a chance there will be a Tier 6 Nova one day.

    I'm not seeing it - but guess am just FAR too used to being disappointed at this point.
    I guess the one tiny glimmer of hope is that recent canon ship releases have been Crusier (Excelsior) - Eng, Destroyer (New Orleans) - Tac, another cruiser (Ambassador) - Eng, so Science is overdue.
    But that doesn't mean that, IF a science ship pack does appear, it'll be the Nova.
    At this point the disappointment is horribly predicable.

    Yeah, it could always be the Deathstar with Nacelles, the noble Olympic :-D

    Two of the most iconic ships are available and some people still complain... :'(

    The noticeable omission of a romulan ship from another ALLIANCE bundle is kind of concerning.

    Already boycotting the store due to the idiotic flash sale times but this just reinforces that view.

    WOW! It's about damn time! Where is the Kamarag though? A huge thank you to the person who got this done! PWE has earned my money this time around. I hope the Kamarag is not too far behind.

    I think they are more likely to do Warship Voyager than the prototype Voyager.

    I'm not convinced. AoD is upcoming and it's irrelevant to that so.....

    No one thought we'd have new ambassadors. Or t6 mirandas....but.....

    Covered last time: there are ROM/DOM ships on the way but with the development lead-up to AoD (and quite a lot of ships teased for that) Cryptic isn't able to provide them at this time. Instead, we're seeing a few minimalist packs to tide the population over until AoD (see. making sure the lights stay on) with the aesthetic ROM/DOM options left out because they can use these ships at a base level.

    Would be great if we could have all the things, but during this period it's not possible.

    I'm just going by what Kael said in the Recon Destroyer thread and the weekly livestream. There will be more Romulan ships. Kael said:

    Yeah, we know. No one is saying they will NEVER make another Romulan ship. But they are going to make FAR LESS than they used to. That is the point, and anyone who says otherwise is deluding themselves.

    This isn't speculation either; we now have an actual fact pattern. Pre VIL we never had a single faction pack that did NOT include Roms (post LOR of course). Post VIL we have not had a single faction pack that HAS included Roms. The reason is obvious: they did not want to have to keep making sub-faction variants with every release, and allowing the sub-factions to use their allies ships "solved" their "problem".

    We know the deal. It's obvious to anyone who isn't sticking their head in the sand. My point is let's just be honest and open about the situation and not pretend like Roms will get anywhere NEAR the same amount of ships they did before. I'm not being pessimistic, I'm being realistic.

    Worth quoting to all of those in the past that said complaints were unjustified.

    No Romulan content equals less play time and zero desire to spend another real life penny. I put in well over a hundred real life $ in this game, but that combined with the persistent lack of end game content, the mountain of bugs accumulating to no end, it's done for me.

    Why did we make endless characters across so many factions in the first place? Grind the same content, pay multiple times over, just so Roms get shafted with 'play your alliance.'

    You are not the only one. The devs don't seem to understand how much they are hurting there own sales with the unfair flash sales.

    Cryptic's really testing my willpower with this one. I'm on an AoD save but...but shiny.

    +1 here too as my main character is ROMULAN.

    I actually do not like the look of this supposed Ambassador class design. It really SUCKS. Big time. Give us the Yamato alternate and I'd buy the FED ship. As it stands, nope. No thanks!

    This KDF ship looks like it got hit with the ugly tree too. I'd buy more ships if they actually looked like TOS and/or TNG ships. I'm holding off in sheer disdain as it seems Cryptic is being spiteful with continued underwhelming starship designs.

    For Pity's sake, look at the K'tinga! Now, look at yours. Look at the K'tinga again, and again, and again. Then build a T6 K'tinga!​​

    Yeah I can't believe we still have not been given a "real" K'tinga. Just look at the underbelly and you will see one major flaw there... and it's not the only one...

    I'm not buying another ship until we get more Romulan and Jem'hadar ships. It seems like the Federation and the Empire have not faith in their ship designs. They keep changing them...

    I can’t wait for it, we are supposedly getting one at some point if I remember correctly from a stream a last year I think . I’m guessing it could be a voyager anniversary ship or something. Fingers crossed anyway :)

    I hope so! I like the Intrepid, especially the two Intrepid interiors, but the Warship Voyager would complete the the ship package for me.

    This would have been a valid point IF the one two faction pack was all we got until AoD. But it isn't now is it. There is no fraking reason to do what they did other than to make it clear that they are abandoning rom and dom harder than they do the KDF now. And KDF is almost abadonware. Looks like the rom and dom faction is the new PvP...aka actual abadonware.

    I was about to say almost the exact same thing. 1 ship pack after ViL with no Rom/Jem ships, okay, I get it. All dev time is being used for the AoD stuff.

    However, a second pack mere weeks after the first and yeah, I can see where folks would start thinking this way. Do I blame Cryptic for "keeping the lights on"? Of course not, but 2 ship packs in 3 weeks and no Rom/Jem ships is a pattern. They could have made this second pack a Rom/Jem one and people would not be complaining like they are.

    Of course, a Rom/Jem pack is not as likely to sell as well as either of the last two, so again, I get it. Business.
