^Wow, that sounds a lot less grindy than I was expecting.
Also, I just read the new dev blog and...I like it. I'm probably in the extreme minority but I enjoy it when things deviate from the shows. It opens up lots of story telling possibilities.
Also I don't get the outrage on the forums about how "Romulans would never do this!" or "Romulans would never do that!" Umm, both Romulus and Remus were obliterated and the Empire has suffered 30 years of war and strife. If a natural disaster completely destroyed the DC-Boston megalopolis, would the United States survive? Probably. Would America be anything like it was before? I highly doubt it.
It sucks if you've always wanted to live the life of a TNG Romulan, but that's JJ's fault and not Cryptic's.
