    Add Cardis to the Romulan Republic not to FrED or KDF.

    I would rather play a Cardassian that helps Romulans to get back on their feet and in the process ending up with Star Fleet, then having to bend over and join that oppressive Regime the Federation is.

    i think from a storyline point of view it would be almost impossible to consider as the early missions point specifically to an internal Romulan and Reman matter. it would mean adding extra dialogue for alien characters in some missions in the republic and doing more voice work.

    i would imagine that is the reason, but it would be nice if the Romulans were thrown a bone and the Acamarians or Suliban ended up in the republic, but it isn't a stable or secure one, so you got some suliban who prefer to remain free and neutral and others who want to do something for their own people by working for the Republic to protect their people. that would make it more believable for the storyline purposes.

    The Republic has the option to role Alien toons since Day one.

    The emerging Romulan Story Arc also has species hooks at least some i am aware of in Dialogs usually you only notice those as Reman but there are some.

    History and Fiction is full of foreigners that get sweeped up in internal struggles in the process ending up as great equalizer for the people they care fore.

    There is no such thing as impossible just the notion we don't care.

    Cryptic could if they wanted we don't know much about what the average Joe Cardassian did after the Dominion War.
    There is plenty of room to consider that some did hasten to help Romulans after the Hobus incident.
    Even one of the old Cardi arc mission did hint at that Cardis do hold Romulans in high regard while you played the mission as FED or KDF they virtualy insulted you or just wanted you to get of their lawn.

    So yes imho if they want they can do.

    For Cardassia! And the Federation too I guess...

    Looking forward to this now!
    For Cardassia!

    Cardassia is more or less a Federation member at this point.

    Also do we get Cardassian boffs too?

    I fail to see the logic of Cardassians being Federation and Klingon, but not Romulan. The Romulan faction sure could use more species options. Now that I think about it, shouldn't the Romulan faction also have access to Vulcans? New Romulus is all about the reunification, right? I know, you can modify a Romulan or alien, but I still think Vulcans should be an option for them. Anyhow, playable Cardassians should be available to Romulan players.

    Glad to see this finally coming, but that space trait worries me. Just from that little description, I'm worried that everyone will NEED to play a Cardassian in order to be competitive if that trait is too strong.

    Can't wait.

    Roll on June! Unless there is an early access option in which case roll on early access!

    Sure hope they are part of the mini-faction. The way it is written sounds like it is just new purchasable zen species from the store. Which means no Cardassian ships, Boffs, and uniforms. And no new cosmetic features (npc hair/neck).

    Question: Will there be a Cardassian based Tutorial (like there is for Romulans); or when creating a Cardassian, do we just pick the Federation or Klingon faction at the character creation screen and then take the new Cardassian character through the existing Federation/Klingon tutorial storyline?
    Given that the Cardassians are not a seperate Faction, like the romulans, my guess is No. You are just making another KDF/Starfleet character, so you will be using their tutorials. It is just that now, you can make a Cardassian.
    given that the preview picture they showed is a Cardie in a STARFLEET uniform?

    Debatable, as we've gotten species-specific uniform options for Starfleet species before (Bajoran uniforms spring to mind, along with the 23rd Century Vulcan, Andorian and Tellarite ambassador clothes). Not to mention, the Orions, Gorn and Nausicaans have their own unique uniform options KDF side.

    This is an interesting point of view, the blog has no mention of the Romulan mini faction, but look at it this way, in the end a Rom created character "MUST" choose a side - And Cardassians are technically not an alien generated creation, they are now said species.

    I fear they are going to be a CStore purchase :(

    550 Zen for a playable Cardassian, similar to Joined Trill, Ferasan, Caitian, and Klingon - If this is the case, then no point in deleting my existing alien generated Cardy.

    Only way I will delete my Alien created Cardy, is if the existing one comes with at least the Cardassian uniform options & a free Cardy inspired ship designed.

    I play an alien made Cardassian.

    Least I hope the new Cardi ship can be bought in the Z-store. Otherwise meh.​​

    Considering that Romulans themselves can only be Federation or Klingon faction aligned...

    At least we get two options. I was a mite concerned after AoY came out and only a Federation character could be rolled with the precedent established of a new character forced into a faction.
  • jcswwjcsww Member Posts: 6,402 Arc User
    Will we be getting the Cardassian uniforms? That is really my only concern. After that, I am cool with Playable Cardassians being allied with Fed/KDF. Admittedly, I would have rather had a Cardassian Union faction, but I can live without it, if I get their uniforms for my Cardassian.

    My guess for those is, expect them in a lock box.

    Hey, Devs, can we FINALLY get a "change player character race" token? Please?

    I knew holding off making a custom cardassian would be worth it eventually
  • evilmark444evilmark444 Member Posts: 6,480 Arc User
    So ... will Cardassian uniforms be available? Picture had him in a Starfleet uniform, and skimming it I didn't see anything about Cardassian uniforms

    So Klingons get Cardassians which doesn't make a whole lot of sense but the RR is screwed over yet again?

    It took me awhile to realize you we're refering to the Kardassians.
  • nommo#5819 nommo Member Posts: 1,054 Arc User

    First, well done Cryptic on finally delivering upon a long request STO feature. Blue spoons, Vulcan nerve-pinches, & all else aside, if inaccurate currently, will be remedied probably for canon soon.

    I'm totally okay with the Cardassians following a similar path as the Romulan/Reman factions did. The mechanic for such is already established, it is probably easier for Cryptic to implement a new race that way too, it allows flexibility, & I'm sure that "vetting" Cardassians means having to go through some sort of introductory tutorial similar as LoR had us do.

    For the BOFF concerns I'm sure Cryptic will offer us some sort of Cardassian "Tovan".

    Pertaining the Spiral-Wave Disruptor weaponry that is a toughy, Cardassians deserve their own distinct type of weapons since in canon they have them, but you also don't want to devalue, even if it is just perception, those weapons that come with the current (2) Cardassian ships (Galor & Keldon).

    If we are lucky, & Cryptic feels generous, like they have in the past there will be no need for a race respec token. Cryptic will offer (1) free character slot for all to decide how to enjoy for the VIL.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Cryptic followed a similar suited path for VIL like Cryptic did for LoR so there might be basic templates of ships, weapons, uniforms etc., but then have much more options from a package or per item from the Store variety then of course add in some gambling additions too.

    I really do hope Cryptic can use this expansion to turn STO around a bit for the better. VIL certainly is appearing impressive so far.

    Well I guess I should delete one of my two fakedassians, too bad one of them already has a Keldon and is my main engi.

    Or wait for new character slots? Shouldn't an update like this come with one or two new ones? I believe they have in the past! Or get some Zen and buy a slot, that's what I'd do, unless there's some sort of maximum and you've reached it!
  • avoozuulavoozuul Member Posts: 2,948 Arc User
    I just don't want fake cardassian toons anymore, but I could rename one and make it a different alien.

    I definitely would like something like the Romulan Tutorial. It could be used to help the player know where the character is coming from as well as help to decide which faction to work with.
  • asdfjkadfjkasfasdfjkadfjkasf Member Posts: 345 Media Corps
    Yeah, making it a different alien might be a better idea, if you don't want to lose a ship! Though, depends if you want to stick with Trek aliens, or make something completely new. There's always Denobulan, but that might not make sense for flying a Keldon...
  • captaincelestialcaptaincelestial Member Posts: 1,871 Arc User
    Does the Romulan Republic get Cardassians too?

    The Cardassians are probably going to be like the Romulan Republic characters, where they had to decide on Federation or Klingon faction to work with. So they wouldn't likely be a part of the Republic.
