Keep in mind that Cryptic never gave their word. The android was only designed to be an Engineer - like Data. It was Jessie who said he'd create additional Tac and Sci versions. It was his side-project - something he'd do in his spare time. It was never a Crytpic-assigned project.

The android was like the Venture skin for the Galaxy X and Nebula. Those were Logan's side-projects, and he left the company before ever finishing the Nebula version.

As was explained in that thread, many Devs have side-projects they do on their own time - without pay - that eventually get into the game. The entire Captain's Table was one such project.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.
