So is there ANY chance we'll get to play as an Android/Gynoid sometime?
 
Presently, I'm using an 'alien species' with a bio that makes her out to be a gynoid from Galor IV, otherwise known as Planet Mudd from 'I, Mudd' in the classic series. There's something of a tradition of sentient androids of all types in Star Trek. And with emerging Photonic sentience, one would imagine that such machine intelligences next step would be to construct bodies not reliant on Mobile Emitters like the Doctor's 29th century tech. So with all the research going on at the Daystrom on such stuff, might we someday be able to play as an android, gynoid or photonic? Would you even be INTERESTED in playing one if given the chance?

That is a very interesting question. I would be intrigued to play as one of the above mentioned, given what options would be available.

Will this happen? In time, maybe. It would be nice to see one day.

I think "alien" with the "twitchy" stance would fit the bill for most android/robot type automatons.

You can customize them with traits (strength, resistances, etc.)

The only thing missing will be the words "android" on your character sheet.

Android (Andro) = robot made to look like a man.
Gynoid (Gyno) = robot made to look like a woman.

I'd probably make a Soong-type if it was a selectable race.

I would make a little girl like data did and then catch alien-pedos like a super chris hansen.

I most definitly want to play as an android. But if that happens, it will probably be an expansion.

Strangely, Capulet and I made "Soong-type" Androids last night.. basically just picked traits that made sense and hers was basically a resurrected Lal.. mine was just a successful build by the Daystrom Institute by Geordi after they had studied all the information gathered from Data/B4/Lal and of course Lores deactivated body.

B-9 (also the original name for B-4 in the Nemesis script.. so I thought it was fitting)
