Why you making like I didn't know?

I was pointing out it's something for Cryptic to fix.

I'd love to see a screenshot of the new model for comparison. However, it seems to me that its an intended change. Remans aren't exactly known for their beauty, they are modeled after the nosferatu vampires. Would it hurt to finally have a species where the females aren't "hot alien babes" but as scary/revolting as the males?

Well it is of course a matter of taste, but I prefer the new look. The old look was too human in my view. A nice human face with some Reman attributes. The new look is more in line with Reman aesthetics.

Reman females don't even look like the same species as the males do. Please, for the love of all that is good and holy or bad and evil or whatever, PLEASE bring the females back in line with the look of the males. Pre-open beta, I got a female Reman bridge officer and the first thing I thought was "Dear god, what the heck is this, this HAS to be a bug, it doesn't even look anything LIKE a Reman." It's like if Klingon males looked like they do now, and the females were changed to have smooth foreheads and their ridges moved to the sides of their heads (Yes, I know it's not a comparison that would ever happen, but I'm just trying to make a point here) They wouldn't even look like Klingons. The Reman females don't LOOK Reman, they just look like some sort of completely unrelated weird alien.

Okay, I'll grant that the old Veril was more a quick placeholder -- the facial features below the brow were just human and not really fitting for a Reman. So I'm okay with having that changed to a more Reman-appropriate look, though it essentially means giving her a smack with the ugly stick, from a human point of view.

I guess what I'd like to see is the first head option with some expanded spot/makeup/marking choices. It seems to be locked into a rather plain state right now. I'll have to take a look at it in the tailor and see if I can come up with specific examples.
Live long, and prosper.

It really doesn't matter much to me, as soon as I could I put her in a Reman hood with shades on, it's the closest I could get to putting a bag over her head. I will agree though, I don't see why it was necessary to change the artwork to make her look so freakish.
If something is not broken, don't fix it, if it is broken, don't leave it.
