That would be good.... im not against them flying though.... I just said they didnt have to fly incase that would be an excuse for not adding them.... I would not make one myself but im sure people out there would love one of these.

You're thinking of the Kzinti, the evil cats in TAS.

And they weren't stolen (or borrowed), because both were created by Larry Niven.

According to the timeline on this very website, the USS Voyager encountered an avian species by the name of the Lorians in 2402. If they're going to ever add an avian species to this game, why not them?

It's too bad I can't *give* the species I've made to Cryptic, I've worked out a lot on them. ...Do I really have to sell my ideas to them? I'm mentioning this while quoting you because one of the three species I've come up with is vulpine.

I'm good with having Avians in the game They were in TAS, and also written into the novel "The Final Reflection" as a race that the Klingons had conquered prior to the TOS era.
