You're going to have to help me out on this one...

What could possibly, without unbalancing the game by making augments universally better than humans and therefor universally better than all races the human race was (I assume) balanced against, be the difference between a human and a human augment?

They both look exactly the same...
They couldn't reasonably have any notable gameplay differences (unless you've come up with some unique racial traits for augments, like sucking at fighting in (STO's somewhat) three-dimensional space)...
And Starfleet doesn't allow genetically altered freakshows to serve knowingly, so if there's augments in Starfleet, they're pretending to be normal humans anyway...

They don't even make a whole lot of sense as a species for the Klingon Empire, what with the whole forehead thing no one talks about.

So what I'm saying is, my guess would be No.
