So the new story arc is called Forced Alliances. That sounds like there will be more of the Empire and Republic teaming up against a third faction.

Can it be a rogue republic faction this time?

I think we've had enough rogue empire bashing done.

Oh, so it wasn't just me noticing that as well?

Btw, I believe it's Forged Alliances.

The republic couldn't possibly have any evil factions within it...

Bah, I heard the "Alliances" name a while back in connection with 2.7 and was worried that's where things would be headed.

I was hoping I was reading too much into the specific wording of the Road Map where they said: "Two new Flashpoints on Tython and Korriban where the Empire and Republic confront each other directly, initiating a new storyline that will span updates across the entire year until its galaxy-shaking finale"

I thought it might end up being significant that they described the flashpoints as confronting each other directly, but not the storyline as a whole as confronting each other directly.
Given the choice whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny, what was a king to do?
But does one ever truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate, and thus defy the tyrannous stars.

Nope. And certainly nobody in the republic could have built any doomsday devices and then accidentally lost track of them. Because that never happens!

I think that the new story makes no sense as:
Spoiler
Europe -> The Red Ecplipse
Oracans-> Sith Pureblood Inquisitor Sorcerer
