Which would also fit into canon far better than the current form, since drones can be of any species, not just human.

Yes. It's not exactly like the Borg would suddenly choose to become speciesist. Non-human drones saved for "special" enemies, hah. The Voyager type seen in the Federation tutorial and in Khitomer Accord Ground were pretty diverse without needing the aliens to be special types.

I would have made the omega rep a borg armor visual, a simple unlock of what is already in the game, we'd have an all new armor complete with their assimilation attack: having npcs fight for you after you take them over.

Would anyone like to roam with an actual borg prosthetic arm, instead of a green minigun?

Just like their root attack is a colored version of engineers difuse attack animation...

You could somewhat easily make all new content just changing some colors around and combining existing animation.

To me it would make more sense to have salvaged borg parts for hybrid gear that utilizes their technology but oh well

seems easier if cryptic just allowed retrait tokens and free'd the traits for every species.

Except not everyone wants the species change for traits. I for one want to change to Alien to increase character customization options. Sure, my traits are picked more or less "wrong" since I didn't know what's important when I started, but I wouldn't spend much Zen just to swap a miniscule bonus to some stat somewhere into a miniscule bonus to some other stat somewhere.

Caitian converted to Gorn as captain of my Excelsior.

Can't see why Gorn's can't be in Starfleet, Klingon's are.

I am currently unsupervised, anyone who knows me will tell you that this will most likely lead to trouble. =3
Non stop crashing and epic lagging are helpful in telling me it's time for bed or to go outside and get a life.

And there are Starfleet Gorn boffs you can get from the diplomatic rank.

Yeah, but you can't play one as a Starfleet captain. And that's what I want.

I noticed in the Playable Cardassians thread that there's talk of actually adding playable Cardassians and Romulans to the game.

If that happens, I would LOVE to be able to re-species my Alien/Cardassian into a real one, without having to lose all of the work I put into him. I definitely think this option should be offered. As I asked over in the other thread--is there any way for Cryptic/PWE to survey and see how many people are actually playing Alien/Cardassians and Alien/Romulans? It can't be just those of us posting on the forums who want the ability to do this.

EDIT: This thread has been closed due to being a "necro" thread. Remember, if a thread has not been posted to in over 30 days, please start a new thread to discuss a topic Thanks! ~BranFlakes
