Add Orions as Fed Playable Race.
 
We get them as DOff's. We should be able to play them as characters. Not all Orions are Syndicate.

Z-Store Unlock? :D

Z-Store Unlocks are annoying. And the race made for the unlock won't be the one you play on the Klingon side. The stats/passive bonuses for Orions don't add up to a 300-550 Zen unlock.

Oh no you don't!
You Feddies couldn't handle Orions.
You want those Orion lovelies, join KDF

:P

If someone want to play Orion play KDF or use the Alien Archetype.

Orions as Fed playable species:

Pro:
* Its canon (see Gaila on Memory Alpha) and in licensed material (see Dennisar on M. Beta)
* another playable species (+ one that is from classic Trek)

Contra:
* loss of uniqueness for KDF
* You can make an Orion-lookalike from the Alien playable species.

Personal opinion:
Playable species - the more, the merrier. I'm pro.

If you want orion boffs/character choices, play kdf. Simple as.

You can already have Orions on the Fed side. It's called "Alien" you just don't get the outfit to go with it and rightly so.

Orions on a Fed ship. Hmmm. How'd that work out for Archer and Co? Not too good as I recall.

Enough already. The Spoon-Fed side has already copy/pasted everything else cool or special on the KDF side. Could you just leave us this one little thing? The thought a Starfleet Vice Admiral has a harem for a Bridge crew, just like I do, takes all the fun out of having one in the first place.

If a FED player really want to play with a orion, pay for this. Is the same rule for Klingon in a FED faction. But no metal bikini for you! ;)

But I want the same for Ferengi in the KDF faction. Ferengi can make a good race to play in KDF for rp reasons.
