Legacy of Romulus
Note: the new content shown below is direct information from Star Trek Online's website.
 New character
- Instead of having to play a Federation character to unlock all other factions as playable, every faction will be playable from the beginning of the game.
- All factions will now start with a level 1 character, which is a change over the KDF's current level 20 character beginning.
 Playable Romulan Faction
- A new playable faction, the Romulan Republic, will be available.
- The player can choose between Romulan and Reman playable species for this faction.
- Remans will be available as either a C-store unlock, or an account-wide reward for achieving Tier 5 in the Romulan Reputation System.
- Around level 10, in the mission “Turning Point”, players will have to ally with either the Federation or the Klingon Empire.
- This choice is permanent, and will allow access to some of the ally's equipment and starships.
- Empress Sela and Colonel Hakeev will return in the story.
In addition to their ally's Tier 1-4 ships, Romulan players will be able to fly iconic Romulan warbird class starships. These ships use Singularity Core engines, and cannot equip standard Warp Core engines.
