Diplomacy vs. Marauder Bridge Officer rewards
 
I hit Diplomacy Rank 4 on my Fed awhile ago, and it really took some time to choose what I wanted as a KDF-exchange officer. Nausicaan? Awesome armour. Orion? Yeah, there's that "token Orion Slave girl" thing that could be an option. Everyone's thought of it at some point. In the end I went with Gorn, for the imposing height over my otherwise all-human crew and for the "Bite" racial. I haven't regretted it since. KDF officers have a lot to offer!

So yesterday (or was it the day before?) I hit Marauder Rank 4 on my KDF main. I went to the vendor, and it's taking me awhile to choose again. Not because we have so many fantastic options, mind you, but because this time I feel like I'm choosing the officer I dislike the least. I had hoped that maybe there'd be something fun, like Caitian, or Aenar available (particularly to those who've bought them before on Fed). But we've got the standard, human/near human fare along with Ferengi...

I'm curious, to all those of you on Fedside who (unlike me) use a more varied crew outside of Humans and Saurians and those of you KDF-side who've already hit Marauder, what's your take on the options available to us as Marauder exchange-officers?

I havn't hit D4 Fedside, I rarely play them, but I didn't even take the BO on my Klingons that have M4.
None really appealed to me and I only have 1 space left in most of my rosters and didn't want to waste it.

My bridge crew is made up of the following

Starting female Andorian
Borg ENG
Borg Sci
Jem'Hadar
Trill Starter female
Breen Tac.




I'm about 18k from rank 4 diplomacy but I like the idea of the gorn... only because I plan to refer to him as the ships counselor.

Crewman: I've just bee depressed lately...

Gorn: Well, stop it or I'll eat you.

Yep, I laughed out loud at that one. Nice :)

Hmm. I might want to get a Vulcan. Though Andorian is temping as well. (From the Fed Tutorial choice, I almost always take the Female Andorian. She's hot for a blue chick with antennaes.)

A Vulcan might get a little intimidated by my crew... although it'd be funny to watch his logic break under pressure with Gorn, Lethean, Breen and Nausicaan bunkmates.

I'm still no closer to actually making a choice. Le sigh.
