Of course, at some stage we have to ask how many species is too many?
I'm all for having tons of species to select. They are C-Store, no-one has to buy them all, so the more there are, the better the chance you can play your fave. I just think it should be fair (its not now, its only Fed species, not a single KDF one) and should also be done one step at a time. Instead of pushing out as many as possible as quick as possible, I'd rather see the devs take their time to make a correct model, even if it means to wait a bit. Simply scale the height to minimum and slap a Tellarite skin on the same basic body doesn't work - see beer belly issue. Same for Pakleds. Both would require a thicker base body. Ferengi have no teeth and traits with barely any relation to canon. Klingons still have VERY limited hair options: the dreadful dreadlocks, nothing even similar to what Klingons had on screen.
Rushed species won't satisfy their fans; I know a lot who didn't buy Ferengi because of the wrong traits (which are even listed as 'better' on the C-Store page than they are in game), or didn't buy Pakleds/Tellarites after seeing on BOs that they can't look like in the shows.
