Romulan Star Empire

Post  @KTagloH on Mon Jul 19, 2010 6:22 pm


The Romulans feature heavily in Star Trek Online. The Empire is just beginning to recover from the decentralization caused by Romulus’ destruction, and not every Romulan faction is friendly to outsiders.

Captains will spend a great deal of time interacting with the Romulans throughout the game, and an entire Season (Episode arc) is dedicated to exploring Romulan space.

While players will not be able to join the Romulan faction at launch, it’s possible to create Romulan-styled Captains who can join either the Federation or Klingon Empire using our unprecedented Alien Gen character creator.

Players will work with and against different Romulan factions to solve a host of problems, like warding off Borg attacks on the weakened Empire, performing counter-espionage and engaging in peacekeeping efforts between the Romulans and Remans. These are just a few episodes of a long story that will become yours in Star Trek Online.

The Klingon Empires view of the Romulans

Post  @KTagloH on Mon Jul 19, 2010 6:27 pm

The only good thing about Romulans is their ale.

Romulans are pointy eared bastard Vulcans, except not as smart as Vulcans. But just as annoying. They count themselves warriors, but they aren’t. They’re rabid beasts. Sly, unreliable, willing to dine upon the corpses of their brothers to survive. Oh, not that Romulans are cannibals -- that I know of -- but they sacrifice each other’s interests more easily than breathing.

The pack of them have been at each other’s throats since the Federation killed off Praetor Shinzon -- who wasn’t even a Romulan -- but I digress. The Praetor after him was murdered in her sleep. After her, there were three or four different factions warring for power. One of them even styled herself Empress, before she got herself killed in the supernova.

Those Romulan fools were so busy fighting each other, they didn’t notice their planet getting blown up under their feet.

Oh, but we did. The Klingon Empire noticed. Like hounds, we could smell the blood slowly spilling out of the Romulan Empire. And we leapt to the hunt, tearing at their flank.

Of course the Federation tried to make peace between us. Pah! Foolishness. There can be no peace with the Romulans. They’ll swear alliance with you and then slay your children as they lie in their beds, as they did on Khitomer. And then the traitorous scum will smile at you, as if nothing at all has happened. The Federation will learn soon enough, if they haven’t already.

We’re ready for them, though. And it will be a glorious day when we slay the Romulans, destroying their Empire and taking vengeance upon them for all of their betrayals.

The Federations view of the Romulans

Post  @KTagloH on Mon Jul 19, 2010 6:28 pm

Romulans are an enigma.

The characteristic Romulan/Vulcan auricula, brow formation and blood coloration results from a shared ancestry and makes the two races almost indistinguishable from external physiology. There the resemblance ends.

Romulans are widely regarded as being -- by many accounts and supported by Federation xenosociology analysts -- highly emotional, arrogant, ambitious, and xenophobic. Romulans -- and most especially, their governing body -- perceive many known races as inferior and will rarely and reluctantly enter into even mutually beneficial partnerships unless said relations are deemed absolutely necessary, as was the case in the Dominion War. Additionally, they are known to work against the interests of their allies whenever doing so would offer them any advantage.

Unfortunately, the Romulan long standing enmity with Vulcan has only complicated matters between the Federation and the Romulan Empire. It is worth noting that a splinter group of Romulans, perceiving the coming threat of the Hobus supernova, appealed to Vulcan for aid and were denied. Since the destruction of the Romulan homeworld in that explosion, Romulans have become even more volatile in their dealings with other species in spite of the aid offered them by the Federation and Federation allies.

Klingon and Romulan conflict has also worsened as the Klingon Empire, perceiving weakness in their old opponents, has made incursions into Romulan space.

At present the Romulan Empire is attempting to recover from the loss of Romulus and establish a stable government. It was perhaps fortunate for the Federation that the Romulans were unable to settle upon a leader for any extended time in the last several years. Such internal instability has no doubt prevented the Romulans from extending hostilities even further within the Alpha Quadrant.
