So, i recall Cryptic saying that we would be able to play either as androids or as photonic characters.

Currently neither is avaible.

So!?

Yes I want my Captain Bender of the USS Planet Express, or Captain Arnold J Rimmer of the USS Red Dwarf!

My guess is it was either postponed or scrapped. Hopefully postponed. Maybe we'll get to see them on the 45 day patch along with the Caitians and Tellarites. Hopefully we will see the Ferengi fixed on that patch as well.

And I'd really like to see some real Cardassians. Sure, you can make something that approximates them in the Unknown alien area, but their just not the same - the ridges on the head don't really stand out, for instance.

I thought it was just that you'd be able to have android and holographic BO's, not captains; but as we have neither atm...

I think you're right about that. They mentioned that the Photonic officers would have limitations, most likely being space only.

Cardassians seem to be up for being made into a playable faction, but it seems they will be doing Romulans first.

Basically, they have stated they will be adding races in.

1. Caitians
2. Tellarites

After those, we dont know, the art dept only said they are planning on more than those two and that they are first.

Oh, and source: http://www.rarityguide.com/articles/...ist/Page1.html

I am pretty sure they will introduce a hologram race, but it seems they will probly go like this:

1. Fix ferengi, they worked in closed beta =/
2. Add caitians
3. Add tellarites
4. Add holograms - Either a 'flicker' stance so you can have any race, or as their own race.

I thought so too. But apparently their idea of Photonic Officers is a science buff that reduces the timers on the Bridge Officer Powers.

But during character creation / modification, you can see there is robotic movement in place. And of course Quinto's EMH is apparent there could be Photonic Officers someday being available.

I'd like the idea of them adding the "flicker" like Quinto's EMH has as some kind of stance or other attribute to your character.

Either that, or they could just add a mobile emitter costume piece to place somewhere on your body.
