As far as Horta go, we are using some loose canon references to an Ensign Naraht joining Starfleet as inspiration for allowing players to have a Horta away team member.
Yay! And much love to all of you for looking at some of Diane Duane's excellent works for further ideas. I hope you guys keep looking at the books for more ideas, I know not everyone likes every book, but... Duane's work is almost universally great. Any chance of seeing the Sulamids at some point, as random background NPCs or such? (can't imagine em being playable)
Hope you're looking at other books as well though, especially 'series' type books such as the Stargazer ones by Friedman. It was mentioned once long ago that one of the devs was interested in doing something related to the energy barrier, in-game, some of the stuff from the Stargazer books (and the prequel "The Valiant" especially) that would be good for that.
All in all, things are looking good
