And this is where you're not listening to me. Once you said he can't be customized I understood your reasons and said fine, but don't make him my first officer. You can't tell me they couldn't write a story where they didn't force a first office upon you. My understanding is that his uniform can't even be customized, you're telling me the immersion would be broken if I see him in the uniform I picked for him and then see him in a mission in the "default" outfit? Come on that's just lame.
I understand he needs to be there, I understand he can't change his species or his hair, face eyes, but certainly he didn't need to be my first officer for them to present a good story. Certainly he could wear the uniform I want him to for there to still be immersion?
I don't want the whole faction rewritten. I want the faction and story to be presented in a way the does not interfere with how I've played the game for three years now.
It's completely analagous to someone who dislikes PvP going into a PvP scenario, and then complaining that PvP happened.
I love this actually, because forcing the KDF into the PVP niche was what pissed so many people off in STO to begin with, not forcing the Roumlans into a "Story Driven" niche is repeating past mistakes.
