Me and some friends had a huge in-game discussion a week or so ago on how awesome it would be (though unlikely) if Cryptic opened another Server (so you can copy characters over) like Tribble but called it Original Series Server. That way you could have TOS Corries at VA level and maybe even make some ships based around the "TOS Ship Style" for Fed, Klingons and Romulans.

I suppose you could sneak in one or two alien ships from ENT too (like Andorian, Vulcan ships)
You could also include stand alone Vulcan, Tellarite, Andorian, Gorn and Orion factions... you could even sneak in Cardassians if you take some novels/comics of TOS into account

But think of it, a classic Trek server with weird and wonderful encounters and classic battles with old foes.

Personally I'd be willing to make the sacrifice of not having my Liberated Borg main Character and making him completely human. That said you could still include the numerous "Alien" races that players have made. The only reason we didn't see a lot of aliens in TOS was due to budget and the make up/special effect limitations of the day, but as we see in TOS Animated series, with M'ress and Arex, there are species in Starfleet and the Federation that you didn't see in the live action show.

... I geek out when ever I think about the possibility
