I will bring this back up because it came to mind recently.
While its been stated that there is no intention to monetize the Foundry, presently, it sort of is. If I want to create a Catian ground character, I can, because I bought the race at some point in the past, same goes for the ferengi, klingons, trill and finally when I got my LTS a liberated Borg. Anyone who has not done so however, cannot do so. If indeed the foundry is meant to be free to all to create for all, should this flaw not be corrected?
All I can tell you is that it seems to be linked to whether a player owns the race or not.
