MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

I came up with a fun lore-friendly excuse to cover these things:

Remember the Romulan observer on the Defiant? Like that, kind of. Remember T'Pol? Yep, she didn't wear the Enterprise uniform either. Counselor Troi was also happier with civvie clothing despite being a member of the crew for all intents and purposes. And let us thank our eternal space gods for whatever possessed Seven of Nine to wear what she did.

STO's player captains aren't "regular" Starfleet, but more like privateers. Freelance adventurers subordinate to the brass but not part of the rank-and-file. Hence the relaxed uniform rules, owning multiple ships, building random starbases willy-nilly, and all manner of hijinks.

So there.

And that is just stupid.

This isn't a Jem'Hadar, this isn't a Borg, this isn't a Reman, and this is NOT a Breen. SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM!?

I would love to be able to at least put a Starfleet uniform on my recruited alien races. This is the only reason I choose to not use most of them.

According to my characters backstory, the first officer is a romulan. I can't exactly have my FIRST OFFICER out of uniform now can I?

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

It's pretty sad, they don't even get unique abilities. Just a trait.

Seconded. And giving that this person here I quoted presumably registered just to leave a feedback on this topic, you should get an idea how important a feature this is to the playerbase, PWE.

What? Why? Why would you ever NOT allow their costumes to be changed? Cryptic is supposed to be known for offering huge amounts of customization. I don't understand!
