Questions About Romulan Boffs
 
I have an Alien Fed character made up as a Romulan and a full complement of Alien as Romulan boffs. Before I spend the crazy amount of time and resources it would take to acquire 6 Romulan boffs from the embassy, I wanted to get some clarification on things I've read about them.

1 - What are they wearing? I've read Romulan uniforms (which I envision as the military ones) and I've read they're in refugee rags like the mining colony. Does anyone have a few screen shots?

2 - The traits are randomized by an algorithm. So does that mean I buy a boff and hope for the best like a lock box?

3 - They're not customizable ala the Jem'Hadar, Breen, Reman, and Borg Science boffs. Is this still true? That's seems like I'd be spending a lot of resources to buy the opportunity to limit my creativity.

Basically, everything I've read seems to make me want to stick with the nearly free fully customizable purple alien boffs I have rather than giving away the farm for cloned Romulan refugees that may or may not have useful traits.

1) it's a boring, ugly outfit
2) from what one of the devs posted, each quality/career/sex combination had their traits determined randomly but each boff of the same quality/career/sex has the same traits - every blue tactical male boff has superior romulan operative (and the same ground traits, but I don't think anyone cares about those)
3) you can't edit their appearance

Thanks for info. Do you happen to have a screen shot or a link for the uniforms? The google searches have not been very fruitful.

Has there ever been a dev explanation of why the unique boffs can't be altered at all? The have the ability to provide uniform options that are available to some of your boffs but not others (Naussicaans, Orion, kitties, etc.). Even if it's just a little customizing, like the facial structures and a belt or comm badge here and there.
