# 1 C-Store needs KLINGON races!!!
05-07-2010, 08:52 AM
Lets see some Klingon love on C-Store.

I'm sure ship variations are being held up by the lack of source material in the canon and complicated by any and all Cryptic designs needing blessings over at CBS/Paramount, but for now, can we at least see some expanded Klingon race options?

Some quick-and-easy additions below:
Terran Empire: A small but significant number of mirror-universe Terrans have begun to make footholds and alliances here in the prime-universe. Allying with and aiding the Klingon Empire is but one of many tactics employed by Terran command to divide the Federations attention and thin their defenses. Much like the Germans trying to back Japanese and Mexican forces in an effort to keep the United States busy at home in WWII, the Terrans are seeking, for now, to aid the Klingon Empire of THIS universe in keeping the Federation on its toes, and offering better chances at gaining a strong foothold in this universe.

Cardassian True Way: Not satisfied with the direction of their own government, no small number of Cardassian True Way fanatics have turned to outside aid in their ongoing campaign against the threat of non-cardassian influence on Cardassia. Continuing to see the Federation as the great threat to Cardassia, and much like the Terran Empire, True Way fanatics have offered their aid to the Kliongon Empire in exchange for concessions ensuring the solidarity and purity of Cardassia after the Federaton have been pushed out of the sector.

Human Augments: It has been clearly established that Human Augments are working with the Klingons in existing Federation PvE storyline quests.

Jem'Hadar remnant: a rare but growing number of Jem'Hadar have begun to trickle into Klingon space, seeking asylum from the Federation and offering their not-insignificant skills and talents to the Empire's cause.

Well Terran Empire isn't really a 'race.' People would want them for ships/uniforms/etc. No race sold on the C-store comes with those things.

But human augment is a fun idea. C-Store Humans of any stripe on the Klingon side would be fair.

And Cardassian and Jem'hadar are most likely to become their own faction sometime in the future.
That aside no cardassian or jem'hadar would ever side with the klingons. :p

The races need to be added to the game not the C-Store.

The Klingon Empire isn't really supposed to have a wide variety of races.

The Federation of Planets, on the other hand ... is sort of founded on the idea.

On the contrary. Not ships and costumes belong in the C-Store. THAT belongs in the game for free. Races, C-Store, that works.

Calnoth would be my first choice.

From the Delta Quadrant, Hirogen seem to fit better in the KDF than a future Romulan faction. I could also see Vidiians (who admire Klingons and would be likely to surrender to them) and Voth (originate on Earth, might want their ancient homeworld back) in the KDF. Voth would also go along with the other reptilians in the KDF. Both Vidiians and Voth are not members of a faction that may be planned for the future.

I could also see Kazon join the KDF, for the sake of getting better hairstyles for the Klingons, lol
Kazon might side with the KDF to get better technology; they are already warriors and have some unfinished business with the Federation.

Please allow me to clarify - I am a champion for the C-Store, but ONLY so long as Cryptic corrects the oversight of exclusivity there and opens all C-Store items as in-game achievable, through either effort (accolades, STFs, etc) or Time (Vet rewards).

I however do not feel the opposite should be true (All achievables should not become c-store, but all c-store should become achievable).

I believe this thread would be made more lively and some posters happier if they were to notice some cross posted information.

According to dstahl's latest engineering report, one of the plans for Update 2.0 is to add a new race to the klingon side.

The Thread

The quote in context of the list:

Quote:
Season 2.0 - July

* STF – “Into the Hive”
* Random BOFF Stores
* Curved Federation Ship Hallways
* Smaller Federation Hallways (non-combat versions)
* Player Ship Interiors
* New Skillpoint Level Cap
* Klingon Episodes
* High End Episode Sector
* Multi-Faction Episode Sector
* Federation Diplomatic Corps
* New Enemy Ship Designs
* New Enemy Group to the Klingon Faction
* New Global Enemy Group for Series 1
* Wildlife Creatures
* New Off-Duty Costumes Types
* Klingon Costume Customization Updates
Unless I'm reading that wrong, that does indeed seem to be a new race added to Klingon faction.
