May Teasers

Captain's Blog Stardate 90796.4

So is it just me or have things been kind of slow with STO news this past week? As a matter of fact on Thursday there wasn't even a patch to the game, just some maintenance. I'm going to assume that Cryptic is working hard on the May update (which still doesn't have a name by the way). If you haven't seen the teaser yet, head on over to

So far we've been given 3 hints. "March Beneath the Raptor's Wing", "Our Shadows Will Dim the Stars", and "Some Will Fall". Many people are speculating the return of the Iconians and I'm starting to agree. Either that, or the Tal Shiar returns in full force. So let's analyze each one and see what we come up with.

First, "March Beneath the Raptor's Wing" is an obvious reference to Romulans. There is a Star Trek novel with a similar name that is about the Earth-Romulan war during the time of Captain Jonathan Archer. My assumption is that this means we'll be seeing a Federation/KDF - Romulan war.

Next we have "Our Shadows Will Dim the Stars" which I have no idea where it came from. This sounds like something the Iconians would say, however it could go along with the belief that the Tal Shiar comes back in full force. If you think about it, a large number of vessels in space could theoretically block out the stars from a planet's view. This could simply be a way of saying "we have a very big army".

Finally "Some Will Fall" sounds like it refers to a war. If you viewed the picture with it, there is an office carrying another officer in what seems to be a battle field. This is a pretty obvious teaser about a war coming.

After looking at these three teasers, I think it is pretty obvious that we will have another Romulan war with possibly the Iconians joining them. I guess we'll just have to wait roughly another 10 days before the announcement! If you have any other speculations or information about these three teasers so far, or if you have any other comments just write them below!

No bets in any direction Attilio. They've been pretty good about teasers with no clues on this one. I'd still like to see a Romulan player faction, but I suspect that is NOT in the cards right now.

Darn the luck.

I agree. The Tal Shiar is likely to return in full force. As the Romulan episodes left off with an Iconian presence it is likely that they will join. This update will probably bring more end-game content but not much more. Based on the previously over-hyped updates, I suspect the end result will be somewhat less than we are hoping for. Not to say it won't be good, but I think new lockboxes, new VA level stuff, and more grinding is in our future.

Hah! I was wrong and my hope is to be fulfilled! A Romulan faction will exist!

Hmmm,I'm I dreaming or is the Romulan empire trying to recreate W.W.II with the Iconian presence.My God I'm I the only one to see this!!! The Federation should truly take a deep look at the Romulan faction.
