The only thing I am not 100 % sure is if Cardies and Dominion are seperate or not.
It kinda makes sense to have the default setups like this, but... It's not satisfying that you can't customize it well. Changing costumes is insufficient, unless you can live with fighting Klingon Neg'Vars behaving like Romulan Warbirds or shooting phasers.
But the NPC groups arent going along with that. I had one group of Klinks mixed with a group of Orions and they started shooting each other, and they were "Blue" to me (as a fed), now as they killed members they would become red and allow me to attack.
Some kind of Friendly/Enemy tag needs to be in there in some capacity for all groups, which would allow better story telling.
I would love to be able to do a me vs Section 39 but I dont want to have to skin every NPC actor to do it.
