Benzite Birgde Officers

I was curious if and when Benzite bridge officers will become available in the game? It seems rather odd that they are a playable race, and appear as duty officers and NPC's, yet they are not available as of bridge officers. Is there perhaps some obscure technical reason for this or any reason at all?

Any information on this puzzling matter would be appreciated. Thank you for your time, and stay safe among the stars.

yeah, that is weird... I suspect that the developers simply didn't get around to it.

Didn't even know that Benzite were playable....

Yeah, you don't see them often. :p

I don't know, people must not like them very much... maybe it has something to do with their low appearance in Star Trek (unless they overcompensate for it in TOS) and their somewhat squid-like head. I did however make a Benzite character (just an NPC group filler atm) for my Foundry mission, Exploratory Crisis.

I have a Benzite NPC in one of my foundry missions. Benzites were one of the new races that debuted in TNG, they weren't seen much after TNG.

They WERE seen on screen during DS9, and a few unnamed Benzites appeared on screen in ENT.

So, the Feds made contact during ENT era, but the Benzites remained unaligned until TNG/DS9. By DS9 they seemed to be a member of UFP.

I've been - and continue to do so - waiting for Benzite BOs for a long time now. I am patient in this regard. Eventually they will come about, just as the Letheans finally did.

Btw, I have a Benzite character. :)

Benzites are known for being efficient right? Give them the efficient trait and people's Saurian crews can have a little variety, at the least.

We've been complaining about there not being Benzite BOs since the game released in 2010.

Weeell... I know it doesn't make much of a difference, but you can make Benzites (minus respiratory device, I believe) in the Alien creator.
