I will admit up front that I am a little disappointed to see that the game is going to be using the same two faction racial division that WoW uses. The main reason for this? As in WoW, I find that I have a faction preference and a race I really like, and they don't match. I really like the Mechari, but I'd rather play Exiles than Dominion. Given that we have humans in both camps, I'd like to hold out hope that maybe, possibly, if I wish really really hard the faction lines won't be absolute black and white in this game. An Exile Mechari, or a Dominion Aurin for example. Unlike some other games (again, like WoW) the division seems to be mostly ideological. You've got the Dominion following their path to keep the universe from falling into chaos, and you've got the Exiles rebelling against the politicking and harsh crackdowns of the Dominion. I know it won't happen, but with all the talk about the game catering to the way we want to play, is it so wrong to hold out some measure of hope that for once an MMO will let me play the character I actually want to play, instead of just picking between the premades?
