Cryptic is preparing a surprise, according to the Dev Blog which explains how Undine has been revamped to make this race more intelligent and more resistant.

Undine was the only species immune to the Borg assimilation. Species 8472 was their Borg Designation, but they told Klingon to call them Undine in Star Trek Online. So far, the species wasn’t a real match to the Borg in game and devs decided to change that.
Undine ships were improved as follows
Undine Frigate now has better AI and faster engines. Strafing runs at high speed is used a bit smarter now, which makes them feel more real as an enemy.
Nicor-class Cruiser will now chain powers more often, and will also use strafing runs on their enemy. This ship wasn’t easy in the first place, so didn’t need much improvements.
Vila-class Battleship has been significantly improved so it can deal an attack worthy of a battleship. Ai has been completely redesigned and the ship got extra beam arrays to play with. “Rumors also persist that the Vila-class ships have been modified to allow them to rip open rifts to Fluidic Space in combat, but this ability has not yet been observed by any surviving party.” This could be one hell of a ship to defeat.
Tethys Dreadnought has been revamped to largely increase ship’s performance. It has an ability to summon Dahut-class Frigates from Fluidic Space, making it worthy of the dreadnought classification.
Undine originates from a dimension called Fluidic Space, which is accessible by Quantum Singularities. In Star Trek Online, players come across the species by playing Undine Advance Episode and its four missions. There used to be a Terradome STF, an interesting mission consisting of both space and ground parts. Terradome cannot be found in a game any longer, though there are rumours that it will be added back.
Some players speculate of an undine Lock Box, but that seems highly unlikely. Although you never know with cryptic, they are full of surprises.
Whether Cryptic plans to bring Terradome back, or introduce something entirely new, we will find out very soon. In the meantime, players can replay the mission within Undine Advance Episode to relive the Fluidic Space experience, which is considered to be one of the best in a game. previous blog revealed that Klingon War Episode has been revamped. We can except more changes to be announced regarding Season 8.5.
