How about CIVILIANS as the third faction?

If a "Civilian" or "Independent" or "Mercenary" faction is the closest we get to playable Maquis, or a Han Solo/Malcolm Reynolds simulator, count me in.
This might be interesting as a transitional faction for Federation characters to defect to the KDF and vice-versa. Let's say, an optional defection/discommendation mission in each faction dumps that character into the neutral middle faction, opening up another optional mission that leads to the other side, should the player choose to take it.
If not, the primary gameplay for that faction could be trading (with transaction bonuses?) privateering on behalf of the other factions, mining (new means of Dilithium procurement?) smuggling, raiding... anything that doesn't fit into Starfleet and KDF gameplay.
rather see this happen than the supposed Romulan faction or the Cardassians. It's certainly more appealing to me personally than Borg gameplay.
