I wasn't the one to bring up TOR, nor am I the one who continues to bring it up as an example of "what you shouldn't do" because of the way it approaches its story. If you don't want to talk about TOR, don't bloody well talk about TOR.

That's doesn't hurt anyone who wants to fall in love with him and hug him and call him George (well actually they can't call him that I guess if he can't be customized).

And now that we're finally back to the technical issue at hand, it still hasn't changed. The way the Tovan character appears in the storyline (as both a BOFF and an NPC) necessitates that he keep a static appearance. If and when the game can technically handle making on the fly NPC changes based on BOFF modification, that'll change.

You're the one demanding that an entire faction be rewritten and redesigned because you can't accept a character driven story...and I'm the one being short sighted?

Nothing is preventing you from running through (or even completely ignoring) the stock Cryptic plotline and roleplaying as whatever you damn well want your Romulan character to be. Except of course your unwillingness to accept that Cryptic made a creative decision to actually put some life into their plot for a change.

You need to actually read what has been written. If you know you're going to dislike a character driven story, you don't walk headfirst into a character driven story, then complain that you hated it. Instead, partake of the content setups that actually appeal to you.

It's completely analagous to someone who dislikes PvP going into a PvP scenario, and then complaining that PvP happened.
