Nice to hear we can use any ship regardless of our specialty, so maybe I can have a medical specialty and still fly my Akira which would more likely be a tactical specialty ship,
Well, in the Romulan Way, by Diane Duane (Pocket Books, sometime in the 80's), there was a Horta Ensign on board the Enterprise. It was a baby of the Horta that Spock mind melded with. They found it was useful in the geology lab as it could differentiate minerals by taste. I might be thinking of the wrong book.
It was also useful in combat as it could eat through rock and metal walls.
And yep, I vote for playable Horta first.
