The game is back up, but of course there are log-in queues.
I made two Romulans in the character creator, one engineer and one tactical, just to have them ready. Bailed at the queue, though, because I need to go to bed shortly. One will ally with the KDF, and one with the Federation. And the first time I've made a female character.
Once I get them allied, I'll post them in the other thread. Have a story worked out for them and everything.
