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.

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.

I dunno, that's some very strange wording. It seems more like the klingons are getting new enemies to fight rather than a new race for their faction.

EDIT: On that thread it also states 'Fed Playable Species: "Rigelian" ', even if they weren't sure what species they were going to go with i'd expect them to re use the first part of the sentance for the same thing on the Klingon side.

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).

You make an interesting point. I could have read it wrong.

Perhaps dstahl himself would clarify.

I read somewhere that it is a species the Klingons will fight in PvE. Sadly. I don't see anything wrong with fighting Romulans, Starfleet or randomly generated species.

My problem with the demand for 'all C-Store should also be available by other means' is - a company needs money. If they make everything achievable by other means, no-one will spend money.
Look what's going on with the RAF items. People scream and rage and spam to get the stuff. That is 'other means', yet no-one is happy with it. Put that in the C-Store - problem solved.
