Are you going to put a playable Human Augment in the near future?

You're going to have to help me out on this one...

What could possibly, without unbalancing the game by making augments universally better than humans and therefor universally better than all races the human race was (I assume) balanced against, be the difference between a human and a human augment?

They both look exactly the same...
They couldn't reasonably have any notable gameplay differences (unless you've come up with some unique racial traits for augments, like sucking at fighting in (STO's somewhat) three-dimensional space)...
And Starfleet doesn't allow genetically altered freakshows to serve knowingly, so if there's augments in Starfleet, they're pretending to be normal humans anyway...

They don't even make a whole lot of sense as a species for the Klingon Empire, what with the whole forehead thing no one talks about.

So what I'm saying is, my guess would be No.

That is about THE one only thing you can be 100% sure will never happen. Even Bashir's father had to go to jail for 2 years, just so that Bashir could remain in the position where he had been for 5 years, even though he had never done anything wrong.

well, balance wise, you have a precedent with the joined trill species, but story wise, they don't belong in the federation.

Didn't we have a mission at lt cmdr dealing with a person making augments and you sent off to arrest him or somethin?

Also don't we have a children of khan mission coming sometime before the end of the century dealing with augments?

Yeah no, don't think we'll ever see them serving in the federation (outside of bashir):p

Everyone is this thread is universally opposed to this Idea of Augments in the Federation, except for the TS, whose not really listening to anybody.

Bottom line: There is no good reason to but augments in, and several to keep them out. There's about one person in these forums that likes this idea, and Cryptic isn't about adding something for a single persons desires. (Or we would have had a new Tier 1 Cruiser: The Saladin Class!
