i made my first Tac Captain a Pakled just because of this thread.

after the enterprise incident, the pakled became more friendly to the federation, probably because they realized we could have killed them, but choose not to. (unlike most other galactic powers)

they became a minor ally during the Dominion war, unlike every other power in the quadrant.
mostly they escorted fed freighters or did search and rescue.

No, that wouldn't be possible.

DNA can change over time, but to acquire completely new features that don't exist in the genome coding is not going to happen.

The only exception I can think of is that they're not actually reptiles at all.

Prior to the rise of the dinosaurs, there was a kind of doglike creature which was part reptile and part mammal.

It laid eggs, but had milk glands much like a mammal.

But it wasn't a true reptile at all and is not classified as such.

However, this species went extinct long ago, so there are no living specimens.

If the Saurians were descended from this creature, then it might be feasible they are what they are.

But then if that was true, they wouldn't be reptiles at all!

Back off man, my Saurian is a Scientist and I rather like him.
Constant exposure to the same opinions leads to continual reinforcement of ideas until eventually, any challenge, no matter what form it takes, is going to be met with a disproportionate sense of outrage. Room for reasoned discussion can no longer occur.

I have seen Tellarite and Saurian characters, but I have never seen a Pakled character.

I do have a question- Am I the only person with a Rigelian Character? I have not seen any other Rigelian chars other then my own.

I almost went for Rigellian (I had Andorian in the end) as they do have a very noble appearance almost. It does irritate me that the skin patterns end at the neck - you have any kind of low collar and it looks silly (no offence to Ensign Helna in that bikini).

Yep, that's a major failing in pretty much any character with a custom skin texture map.

Infected Borg Skin for example, stops at the neckline, so it becomes very obvious if skin is visible below the neckline, that it's pretty flawed.

Tellarites used to be the unsung awesome of the game. I dunno how they fare under the new system...
